Passing score on graduation tests no longer required for diploma (HB91)

July 5, 2016 - Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 91 into law on March 30, 2015, giving former students the opportunity to petition for graduation. This law means that an individual no longer enrolled in a Georgia public school and who previously failed to receive a high school diploma solely for failing to achieve a passing score on one or more portions of the Georgia High School Graduation Test, the Georgia High School Writing Test, or their predecessors may petition the local board of education for graduation. The local board will determine the student’s eligibility to receive a high school diploma pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 20-2-281.1 based on the graduation requirements in effect when the student first entered ninth grade.

Zika virus information from the CDC

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has developed interim guidance for kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) district and school administrators for public health actions pertaining to Zika virus infection. This guidance is intended to address concerns about the risk for Zika virus infection in K–12 schools in the United States, provide school districts with information for planning school-related activities, and recommend actions that can be taken, in consultation with local public health authorities and government officials, to reduce the potential risk for Zika virus transmission on school premises and among students. This guidance provides an overview of the potential roles and responsibilities of public health authorities and school officials, describes prevention measures that schools can take to reduce mosquito exposure, and provides information on responding to a case of travel-associated Zika virus infection or confirmed local mosquito-borne transmission of Zika virus.


Please take a few minutes to read the Zika Virus Response Planning: Interim Guidance for District and School Administrators online at: Additional information is also available on our "Student Health Services" webpage.
