High School Diploma Petition Request


On Monday, March 30, 2015, Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 91 into law, thereby creating a new code section, O.C.G.A. 20-2-281.1. This law became effective upon the Governor's signature. This law provides that students shall no longer be required to earn a passing score on any graduation test to earn a high school diploma. The law also allows for any individuals no longer enrolled in a public school who were denied a high school diploma solely for not achieving a passing score on any of the graduation tests and met all other local and state requirements submit a petition to the local school system to determine eligibility to receive a high school diploma under O.C.G.A. 20-2-281.1

Former students of Elbert County Comprehensive High School  who would like to submit a petition for a diploma must complete a petition form. Please click on the links in the right sidebar for more information.
