Senate Bill (SB) 172 California High School Exit Examination

SB 172, authored by State Senator Carol Liu, went into effect January 1, 2016. The bill amends Section 60640 of Education Code. It also adds Section 60851.5 and adds and repeals Section 60851.6 of Education Code.

SB 172 suspends the administration of the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE). It also removes CAHSEE as a condition of receiving a diploma of graduation or as a condition of graduation from high school for each pupil completing grade 12 for the 2015-16, 2016-17, and 2017-18 school years. The bill also requires, until July 31, 2018, the governing board of body of a local educational agency (LEA) and the CDE on behalf of state special schools to grant a diploma of graduation from high school to any pupil who completed grade 12 in the 2003-04 school year or a subsequent school year and has met all applicable graduation requirements other than the passage of the CAHSEE.
