Since mid-2014, the GED is no longer the only option
available in order to meet High School completion
requirements, in California. Therefore, test preparations
for the
HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) and,
possibly, the
TASC (Test Assessing Secondary
Completion) have been discussed. However, due to the
fact that these alternative tests are not accepted by all 50
States we are staying with the
GED at this time.

The Governor signed California Senate Bill 725 earlier
in September.  That bill exempted the class of 2015
from having to pass the CAHSEE in order to graduate.  
However, SB 172 extended that reach by including
the class of 2014 then the Governor requested that it
include all classes since the inception of the CAHSEE
graduation requirement.
Therefore, since SB 172 is signed by the Governor, it
is the law.  This means that all students who
completed all of their graduation requirements and
didn't pass the CAHSEE will receive their actual
Diploma instead of a Certificate of Completion.
