Below is information regarding the suspension of the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE):

What is Senate Bill 172?

Senate Bill (SB) 172 (Liu), signed by Governor Brown on October 7, 2015, suspends the administration of the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) and the requirement that students completing grade twelve successfully pass the high school exit examination as a condition of receiving a diploma of graduation from high school for the 2015–16, 2016–17, and 2017–18 school years. The law also requires local educational agencies (LEAs) to grant a diploma of graduation to any student who completed grade twelve in the 2003-04 school year, or a subsequent school year, and has met all applicable graduation requirements other than passing the high school exit examination. The bill also requires the Superintendent to convene an advisory panel to make recommendations to the Superintendent on the continuation of the high school exit examination and on alternative pathways to satisfy the high school graduation requirements pursuant to California Education Code sections 51224.5 and 51225.3. The law will take effect on January 1, 2016, at which time LEAs shall be permitted to issue diplomas to eligible students. Below is a chart that overviews the suspension by school year:

The following steps can be taken in the 2014-2015 database to help identify the students affected by SB 172 and report them as graduates to CALPADS:

  1. Verify the CALPADS Code Translations for the Completer Status (STU.HSG) field:
    1. CALPADS code 104 - "Did Not Graduate (met all grad reqs except CAHSEE)"
    2. CALPADS code 100 - "Graduated, standard HS diploma".
  1. Run the following query with the "Include Inactives" option selected.  Use the correct Aeries local codes for the CALPADS code 104:
  1. LIST STU NM GR HSG DG IF GR = 12 AND HSG = 104 "Did Not Graduate (met all grad reqs except CAHSEE)" CALPADS code 104"
  1. Review the Query results.

  1. Upload the SENR file to CALPADS to report these students as graduates.  Post the file.
  1. After the SENR CALPADS file has been posted and the status is Complete, run the following Change Query to change the "Did Not Graduate (met all grad reqs except CAHSEE)" codes to the "Graduated, standard HS diploma" code.

Graduation Classes of 2013-2014 and 2012-2013

For students who met all applicable graduation requirements in 2012-13 and 2013-14 except for passage of the CAHSEE,

  • LEAs may enroll these students in the 2014-15 academic year for one day and then exit them the next day with a Student Exit Category of E230 (Completer Exit) and a School Completion Status code of 100 (Graduated, standard HS diploma) if LEAs want these students to be counted as 5th or 6th year graduates
    • Upload the SENR file to CALPADS to report these students as graduates.  Post the file.
