PLEASANTON -- About 400 Amador Valley High School students will have to retake their Advanced Placement exams after the California College Board found "seating irregularities" during a recent testing session.

The Educational Testing Service, which administers the test, found that students in two rooms were not seated the required 5 feet apart. In addition, not all students were seated facing the same direction, invalidating those students' results.

Students were informed about having to retake the test Thursday through an automated phone call from Amador Valley principal Thomas Drescher. The school will also send letters to students' families.

Students will retake their exams next week, giving them enough time for results to be submitted to colleges.

Parents that have questions or concerns about the re-testing, are invited to attend a forum at Amador Valley High School, 1155 Santa Rita Road, on Friday at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m.
