CAHSEE hits City College campus

According to the California Department of Education, all high school students attending a public school, beginning with the class of 2006, must pass the California High School Exit Exam to earn a high school diploma.

City College student Lucia Soto, 20, was part of Burbank High School’s class of 2007. She was ready to graduate. She bought her cap and gown and made plans for graduation, but then she failed the math portion of the CAHSEE.

Luckily for many students like Soto, CAHSEE tutoring and exam administration is now available at City College’s Learning Skills and Tutoring Center on the first floor of the Learning Resource Center.

According to Farough N. Tabrizi, CAHSEE project coordinator, the main purpose of this program is to identify and provide free tutoring for those students who did not receive their high school diploma in 2006, 2007 and 2008, because they did not pass the CAHSEE.

“We offer one-on-one tutoring in English and math which is specifically geared towards the exam,” Tabrizi said. “We also have two computer tutorial programs that are also geared toward the CAHSEE.”

Tabrizi also said that many students who do not receive a high school diploma lack a sense of completion

According to Tabrizi, the CAHSEE is not a GED program and students who excel in these exams obtain an actual high school diploma.

“It is a good opportunity for students who did not pass these examinations,” Soto said.

The CAHSEE is typically administered to high school students in their sophomore year. It consists of two portions: English and math. Students must earn 350 points to pass these examinations.

According to Luther Burbank High School counselor Alejandro Corona, high school counselors are aware of this project and provide it as an option for those students who failed to pass one or both portions of the CAHSEE.

“Burbank High grants a high school diploma to those students who pass the CASHEE within one year after their class year,” Corona said.

There are around 110 students already participating in the program and, according to Tabrizi, the doors are open to new participants. This program is also open to the public.

The CAHSEE project is trying to spread the word by advertising on Regional Transit buses and television and radio stations. Soto took the CAHSEE math portion on March 17 and hopes she passed it.
