WHITTIER – State officials have released the 2006-07 results of the California High School Exit Exam, a 10th-grade level test in English-language arts and math that must be passed in order for high-schoolers to receive their diplomas. Statewide, officials said about 93 percent of the Class of 2007 passed both portions of the exam. Locally, more than 98 percent of nearly 4,900 Whittier-area graduating seniors were able to pass the state’s high school exit exam this year. Officials from local school districts say they’re also seeing more of their students passing the CAHSEE earlier. Students take the exit exam for the first time in 10th grade, then get two additional chances to pass in their junior year and three chances in their senior year.
