The State Superintendent of Public Instruction filed an appeal with the California Supreme Court. He asked the Supreme Court to stay a ruling by the Alameda County Superior Court that halted the exit exam as a graduation requirement for the class of 2006.
The attorneys who represent the students requested an expedited hearing. The First District Court of Appeals in San Francisco rejected their request. Written briefs from the plaintiffs are due on June 13. Oral argument is scheduled for July 25.
