The Mount Diablo Unified School District in Contra Costa County reports 30% of high school students are failing more than one class, up from about 19% in the last two years.

And in Marin, the Independent Journal reports there were 3,007 D, F or incomplete marks among the Tamalpais Union High School District's students this year, compared to 1,834 marks last year at this time.
