Beginning with the high school class of 2006, students in California public schools were required to pass the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) in order to earn a high school diploma. The test examined proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics. The content of the test was based on academic standards that were adopted by the State Board of Education (SBE) in 2003. In 2010, the SBE adopted new state standards, creating a misalignment of academic standards between the CAHSEE and the new standards. Due to this misalignment, Senate Bill 172 (Liu) was signed by Governor Brown in October 2015 to suspend the administration of the CAHSEE and the requirement that students pass the CAHSEE to receive a high school diploma. The law required that schools grant a diploma to any pupil who completed grade twelve in the 2003-2004 school year or a subsequent school year and met all applicable graduation requirements other than passage of the CAHSEE. The law became effective January 1, 2016. If you are a student who met all applicable graduation requirements other than passage of the CAHSEE between 2004 and 2014, please contact the high school district of your attendance and inquire about their process to receive your high school diploma. They have staff who can assist you.
