    Orange Unified students surpass state percentages in high school exit exam

    The California Department of Education released this year’s results for the California High School Exit Exam today (CAHSEE). Orange Unified 10th grade students beat the statewide passing percentages in Math and English Language Arts.

    In Orange Unified, 87% of this year’s 10th grade students passed the math portion (last year=84%) and 89% passed the English Language Arts portion (last year=87%). The state passing rate totals were: Math 84% (last year=83%) - English Language Arts -83% (last year=82%). The Orange County passing rate totals were: Math 89% (last year 88%) and English Language Arts 88% (last year 88%).

    The brightest spot in the good exit exam news for the OUSD results were the 99% of the district’s 10th grade English Learners that the district had “reclassified” as English proficient passing the CAHSEE (last year = 97%). English learner students status is "reclassified” after being tested and deemed now proficient in English.

    CAHSEE is administered each year to ensure that students who graduate from public high schools demonstrate competency in reading, writing, and mathematics. Students who do not pass the CAHSEE in grade ten have two opportunities in grade eleven and up to five opportunities in grade twelve to pass the exam.

    In a press release, California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Superintendent Torlakson stated:

    “While I'm happy about the progress made by the Class of 2012, I still have concerns for the Class of 2013, the Class of 2014, and all the classes that will follow. We have made solid improvement, but schools and districts are facing some unprecedented challenges right now. Overcrowded classrooms, shorter school years, and fewer teachers are in store for us unless we stop the cuts to education funding and begin restoring some of what has been cut in recent years."
