California High School Exit Exam is Suspended

According to an article in the Los Angeles Times dated October 7, 2015, California's statewide high school exit exam, normally a requirement for students to receive their diplomas, will be suspended for three years under a new law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday.

The measure, SB 172 by Sen Carol Liu (D-La Canada Flintridge), will also allow about 32,000 students who did not pass the exam dating back to 2004 to receive diplomas as long as they completed all other graduation requirements.
