California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE)
Exam given to 10th, 11th and 12th grade students only.
How is this scheduled?
The state establishes which months the CAHSEE exam will be available to school districts. Then each district selects which months it will participate in, and which grades it will schedule to test in the chosen months. Each school district can have a different testing schedule than their neighbor.
Information on the Valenzuela Legislation and how VVUHSD is coordinating this requirement.
