CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL EXIT EXAM SUSPENDED

DIPLOMAS AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS FROM 2003-2014 WHO DID NOT EARN A DIPLOMA DUE TO EXIT EXAM

Castro Valley, CA – (January 4, 2016) – High school and adult school students who completed grade 12 and all requirements but did not pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) can now receive a high school diploma thanks to a new law that went into effect January 1, 2016.
