On Monday, March 30, 2015, Governor Nathan Deal signed into law HB91, allowing students or former students, who have met all requirements for graduation but failed one or more parts of the Georgia High School Graduation Test or Basic Skills Tests, to receive a diploma upon petitioning the local board of education. Petitions can be found here or retrieved in person at the Hart County Schools’ Board of Education office or Hart County High School. A completed petition must be returned to Hart County High School to determine a person’s eligibility for a diploma. Once eligibility is determined the petition will be sent to the Hart County Board of Education for approval at the regular monthly meeting.
