Student Transcript and Records Requests
Pupil Services has centralized the Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) inactive student records at one location for the purpose of filing transcript and records requests, monitoring and maintaining inactive stored files. In addition, LACOE-authored Charters (ONLY) that have closed have sent their records to LACOE for storage. Currently we have Soledad Enrichment Academy (SEA) and Opportunities Unlimited Charter High School (OUCHS)
Steps for Requesting Student Transcripts, Diplomas, and/or other school records.
A. Fax, email or bring to LACOE a written request signed by the person with Education Rights.
A signed release by the student is required if the student is over the age of 18 years.

Class of 2005 Through 2014 Exit Exam Suspended: Students from the classes of 2006 through 2014 who completed all graduation requirements and coursework and attended school through the 12th grade but did not pass one or both sections of the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) may be eligible for a high school diploma. A new State law– Senate Bill 172 signed by Governor Brown on Oct. 7, 2015 – allows a student to receive their high school diploma if they have met all of the graduation requirements, but did not pass CAHSEE. All issued diplomas will have a graduation date as prescribed by the law of January 01, 2016.
GED Information: LACOE no longer has access to GED scores or certificates for tests taken prior to 2017. You will need to request GED transcripts from www.myGED.com
The Los Angeles County Office of Education does not have the authority or resources to collect and/or store transcripts or records for students in all of Los Angeles County public charter, or private schools.
To obtain a transcript from a California public school, an individual must contact the school directly. If the school has closed, we suggest contacting the local school district.
