For Your Information:

Courses without an EOC or SLO:  All students take the final exam unless they meet the attendance/grade criteria:

    - Minimum grade of 70 and no absences
    - Minimum grade of 80 and no more than 3 absences
    - Minimum grade of 90 and no more than 5 absences

EOC Courses:  The state will not release EOC grades until the fall of 2015.

Therefore, all students are exempt from the final.  Students may come take a final if they would like to improve their average.  However, the final exam will not count against them if it has a negative effect on their average.

SLO Courses:  SLO scores will not be counted as a grade this year.

All students take the final exam unless they meet the attendance/grade criteria or they pass their SLO:

    - Minimum grade of 70 and no absences
    - Minimum grade of 80 and no more than 3 absences
    - Minimum grade of 90 and no more than 5 absences

House Bill 91 Update
Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 91 into law on March 30, 2015.
The law contains provisions for students no longer enrolled in the school system to petition the Local Board of Education for a diploma if their sole reason for not receiving a diploma was due to not passing any part of the required graduation tests at the time of enrollment.
Please use the form below to formalize the petition process.
