On Monday, March 30, Governor Deal signed House Bill 91 into law. The bill, which passed the House 172-0 and the Senate 50-3, eliminates the Georgia High School Graduation Test as a requirement for graduation. 
HB 91 Section Five reads: “On and after the effective date of this Act, students shall no longer be required to earn a passing score on the Georgia High School Graduation Test to earn a high school diploma. A person who is no longer enrolled in a Georgia public school and who previously failed to receive a high school diploma in this state or was denied graduation solely for failing to achieve a passing score on one or more portions of the Georgia High School Graduation Test … or its predecessor may petition the local board of education … to determine the student’s eligibility to receive a high school diploma.”
