In the wake of a new law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, state schools leader Tom Torlakson urges California school districts to immediately grant diplomas to high school students affected by the recently passed CAHSEE bill.
Torlakson, in a press release issued late Friday, encouraged districts to issue diplomas to any of some 5,000 students who have met all other high school graduation requirements in the 2014-15 school year except the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE).
Responding to text messages, Mark Frazier, chief academic officer for Vacaville Unified, and Dixon Unified Superintendent Brian Dolan knew of no area students affected by the legislation.
