Petition for High School Diploma

Posted by Laura Beckham

Posted on 11:43, Friday, April 24

On March 30, 2015, Governor Nathan Deal signed into law House Bill 91 (O.C.G.A. § 20-2-281.1) that retroactively removes the requirement in the State of Georgia to pass exit exams as a condition to receive a high school diploma. As such, former Georgia high school students who have completed all requirements for high school graduation with the exception of passing one or more portions of the Georgia High School Graduation Tests, the Georgia High School Writing Test, or their predecessors and were denied a high school diploma solely for this reason are now able to petition the local board of education in which he/she was last enrolled to receive a high school diploma. The local board of education must determine the former student’s eligibility to receive a high school diploma based on the graduation requirements in effect when the student first entered ninth grade.

The Oconee County High School Diamond Booster Club is hosting an online auction to raise funds to make much-needed renovations to our field, and I was hoping you might be willing to help. Our online auction features dozens of great items ranging from vacations and collectible items to sporting goods and jewelry, so there’s something for everyone and every budget.
The auction will run from April 22nd to May 15th. To bid on items, you must create an account, but this is very simple and only takes a couple of minutes. After that, you can bid on anything you like – and you will be notified by email if someone outbids you. You can also make an outright donation on the auction site if none of the items are of interest.
