California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE)

Information for Former FUSD high school students:

From 2006 to 2015, the CAHSEE was a two-part test, linked to academic content standards in English/language arts and math, that students were required to pass in order to graduate.  However in 2015 the California Legislature (Senate Bill 172) eliminated CAHSEE as a graduation requirement and districts were instructed to retroactively issue high school diplomas to students who met every other graduation target but failed the exam.  Effective on 1/1/16.

If you believe you are now eligible to receive a diploma, please contact your previous high school to ask them for the form (CAHSEE Diploma Request Form) and submit it to your high school either in person or via U.S. mail (email will not be accepted). Please note that, if approved, it may take up to several weeks to receive the diploma.
