CAHSEE Canceled, Students Not Affected

After the California High School Exit exam was suspended for the 2015 class, many students were left in limbo with their futures. However, on Aug. 28, Gov. Brown approved Senate Bill 725, that allows graduating seniors to receive their diploma if they met all the other graduation requirements.

The California Department of Education canceled the CAHSEE after its contract with the test provider expired, leaving 5,000 students worrying whether they would receive their diploma and move on into college. Upon the cancelation, the University of California and the California State University announced that they would not deny entry to students who were accepted to university because of the cancellation.

Education officials and lawmakers are already working on a replacement for the test that would comply with modern Common Core standards for math and English. Others propose to suspend the test for coming years until 2018.
