Today, the state Department of Ed released its report about the number of sophomores who passed the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) this year. Students who did not pass have several more opportunities to retake the test their junior and senior years.
The exam tests students in their English and math skills. Students must pass the test to receive a high school diploma, although some special ed students may be exempt.
