House Bill 91
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.
Formalized Cobb County School District

developed and will be posted to the Cobb County School District
