State plans to appeal exam ruling

first_imgO’Connell authored the exit exam legislation while he was a state senator and has been a strong advocate of the requirement. He said the exam is the only way for students to demonstrate they have learned the curriculum. But some Whittier-area educators worried the rapidly unfolding legal developments will result in anxiety and uncertainty among seniors who have yet to pass the exam. “The unfortunate part about this is that it puts students on an emotional roller-coaster,” said Ralph Pacheco, a trustee on the Whittier Union High School District school board. “One day it appears they can participate in graduation, and on another day it could be just the opposite. “That’s unfortunate for families who obviously would like to see their students walk on graduation day,” he added. About 200 area seniors in the El Rancho Unified School District, the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District and the Whittier Union High School Districts have yet to pass both portions of the exit exam, officials said. Officials at all three districts also are awaiting results of the exit exam taken by students in March. Those results could show that more students have now passed the exam. Confusion also is trickling down to high school juniors who have yet to pass the exam. Those students can enroll in summer classes that provide additional tutoring to help them pass the exam, local officials said. But the deadline to sign up for those classes is rapidly approaching, even as the future of the exit exam is in limbo. “If I was a parent of a junior, or a student who is a junior, I’d be asking, `Should I attend summer school?”‘ said Ron Carruth, superintendent of the Whittier Union High School District. “We don’t really want to see that kind of confusion now,” he added.

WHITTIER – The state will appeal a judge’s suspension of the high school exit exam to the California Supreme Court, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell said Thursday. But O’Connell said attorneys are still working on that appeal and advised school districts to follow the ruling for now. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Robert Freedman last week granted a preliminary injunction against the state in a lawsuit that claims the exit exam discriminates against poor and minority students who do not have the same preparation for the test. The ruling cleared the way for about 200 Whittier-area seniors who have met every other graduation requirement except passing the exit exam to graduate next month.

The Class of 2006 was supposed to be the first required to pass the exam to receive a diploma. A group of seniors sued the state in February, asking for an injunction barring the exit exam from taking effect until a judge can decide on their claim that all students do not have access to equal education in California. last_img
