NOTE! CAHSEE SUSPENSION (SB 172)
On October 7, 2015, California's Governor Brown signed legislation that exempts students from passing the California High School Exit Examination as a requirement for earning a high school diploma. Effective January 1, 2016, former students who met all requirements to earn a high school diploma, with the exception of passing the CAHSEE, are now eligible to receive a high school diploma. If you believe you now qualify for a high school diploma under the new law, please contact the school counselor at (510) 231-1453, for further information.
