House Bill 91 Diploma Requirement
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 procedures for the HB91 petition process are
currently being developed and will be posted to the Cobb
County School District website shortly.
