LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) — For the first time, high school seniors in the Clark County School District who fail the state proficiency exam will not walk at graduation.

In the past, students who met all other graduation requirements could still cross the stage without collecting a diploma.

What some parents think is unfair is that the current freshman class and all others that follow will not even have to take the proficiency exam.

It is a decision the Nevada Legislature made this past session.

Lawmakers replaced the exam with end-of-course exams, which the school district says will be harder.

The current students who did not pass the proficiency exam will have another chance to take the test in July.

If they pass, they can participate in a different graduation in August.
