Haley Removes High School Exit Exam From SC Schools

Posted: Updated:

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley deleted the mandate that required high school students to pass an exit exam before they graduated.

The High School Assessment Program has been a mandatory requirement for graduation for more than 3 decades.

But now, it is being replaced by two exams: a work-readiness exam and a college entrance exam. The work readiness exam is called Work Keys. It will give qualifying scores that students can take to employers.

“It helps employers find the right match for students,” said Rock Hill School District Executive Director of Secondary Education, Judy Mobley. “It helps the students find the right match in their jobs.”

The college entrance exam will be either the SAT or the ACT.

11th graders will begin the new testing in the Spring of 2015.
