Out-of-District Amnesty Period
Our schools have experienced an inordinate number of instances where parents have falsified their residence address. This places an undue and unnecessary burden on the school system, let alone is illegal by Georgia law. The school system is offering an amnesty period until May 2 for parents to correct their address with the school and pay out-of-district tuition for the 2016-17 school year for any child who is in good standing otherwise and wishes to remain in the city school system.
After the amnesty period, May 2, any student who is found to be out-of-district and has not paid the tuition will be withdrawn immediately. These students will not be eligible to attend the city school system in the future as out-of-district students. Parents should also be aware that falsifying an address with the school is subject to prosecution for violating Georgia law 16-10-20.

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.
