Administration of the CAHSEE has been suspended for students in the classes of 2016, 2017, and 2018. The following is from the California Department of Education website:
“Beginning with the class of 2006, students in California public schools were required to pass the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) to demonstrate competency in grade-level skills in reading, writing, and mathematics to earn a high school diploma. The content of the CAHSEE was based on content standards in English-language arts and mathematics that were adopted by the State Board of Education (SBE) in 2003. In 2010, the SBE adopted the Common Core State Standards in English-language arts and mathematics.
Due to the change in academic standards, Senate Bill 172 (Liu) was signed by the Governor to suspend the administration of the CAHSEE and the requirement that students pass the CAHSEE to receive a high school diploma for the 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18 school years.”
We anticipate that the state will offer a new version of the CAHSEE for the class of 2019 and beyond. We will keep you updated as we find out additional information.
