As the 2007‑2008 school year draws to a close, and many are celebrating the graduations of Logan’s seniors, there are still many, unfortunately, who will not be able to share the same joy. Instead, many of these will be studying hard for the next California High School Exit Exam in hopes for another chance to receive their high school diplomas.
For the Class of 2008, 54 of the students have not yet passed the English portion of the CAHSEE, while 54 have not passed the Math. For the juniors, 112 students are not passing both the English and the Math section. The sophomores, who have recently taken the exam for the first time, have about 173 who have yet to pass the English portion, and 213 for Math. Around 40 of the total students unable to pass the exam are actually exempt from the test because they are not on diploma tracks. 10th graders have one opportunity to take the test, 11th graders have two, and 12th graders have three before graduation.
