Former CHS Student Petition for High School Diploma

On March 30, 2015, Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 91 into law providing that students shall no longer be required to earn a passing score on any graduation tests to earn a high school diploma. The law also contains details and requirements regarding the ability of students no longer enrolled to petition the local board of education for a diploma if the sole reason for not receiving a high school diploma was due to not passing any part of the graduation tests.
