Under the current health and safety conditions, traditional ceremonies with large crowds are not permitted. We are working on an alternate way to celebrate the success of the Class of 2020.  Please watch video on virtual presentation.



Participation in all end of year events is a privilege, not a right.

8th grade culmination: To receive a middle school diploma, students must pass all of their eighth grade classes.  These requirements are subject to change by LAUSD.

Any suspension warrants the possibility of removal from eighth grade activities and/or the culmination ceremony.  In addition, students cannot have more the 5 Us in the 8th grade culminating semester.  Students must clear all financial debts and other obligations to the school before participating in the culmination ceremony.


Please read the following policy with your child. Por Favor lea nuestra polica de culminacion con su hijo/a.

LAUSD adopted a Middle School Culmination Activity and Certificate of Completion Policy

This policy defines the criteria for issuing a Middle School Certificate of Completion and for students to participate in the Middle School Culmination Activity. It supports student achievement and guides students in preparing for matriculation from middle school to high school.


Los Angeles Unified School District and Irving STEAM Magnet requires that a student meet the following criteria to earn a Certificate of Completion and to be eligible to participate in all 8th grade activities including Grad Night, 8th Grade Formal, Picnic, and the Culmination ceremony:


  • Students must earn 5 credits for passing each semester course with a ‘D’ or better. Grades from all subject areas will be used to determine credits earned in eighth grade.
  • Students must earn 67 credits to be eligible for the Certificate of Completion.
  • Students may not have more than TWO (2) U’s in Cooperation and/or No more than TWO (2) U’s in Work Habits.
  • No more than eight (8) unexcused absences.
  • Returned and/or cleared all textbook debts, library books and/or any other debts. *If you do not pay your debt, you will not receive your culmination certificate.
  • In the event of frequent or serious violations of school regulations/discipline policy, administration reserves the right to withhold a student from participating in the culmination ceremony.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: If a student has too many U’s in the first semester, it is still possible to participate in the Culmination Ceremony if you make a genuine effort to improve these marks in the 2nd semester.


Students will discuss this policy during the Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) conferences. We will work closely with you and your child to promote academic achievement.  If you have questions about the Culmination Activity and Certificate of Completion policy, contact your child’s counselor at 323-259-3700.

Estas normas definen los criterios para  otorgar un Certificado de Terminación de Estudios de la Intermedia y para que los  alumnos puedan participar en la Actividad de Graduación de la Escuela Intermedia.  Dichas normas apoyan el aprovechamiento académico y guían a los alumnos al  prepararlos para la transición de la preparatoria.


El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Ángeles y la escuela Irving STEAM Magnet requieren que los estudiantes cumplan las siguientes normas para obtener un Certificado de Culminación y para ser elegible para participar en las funciones del octavo grado incluyendo Grad Night, Baile Formal del Octavo grado, día de picnic, y la ceremonia de culminación: 


*Los estudiantes deben obtener 5 créditos para cada curso semestral con una calificación de 'D' o mejor. Las calificaciones de todas las materias se usarán para determinar los créditos obtenidos en el octavo grado.
