Georgia Milestones Assessment System

Georgia High School Graduation Test

The law covers all graduation tests, beginning with the Basic Skills Test which was administered to students who enrolled for the first time in grade 9 on or after July 1, 1981.

A person who is no longer enrolled in a Georgia public school and who previously failed to receive a high school diploma in Georgia or was denied graduation solely for failing to achieve a passing score on one or more portions of the graduation tests may petition the local school system in which he or she was last enrolled to determine his or her eligibility to receive a high school diploma, pursuant to this new law. The local school system will make the final determination based on the state and local graduation requirements that were in effect when the student entered the 9th grade.

Individuals who attended Washington County High School who now qualify to receive a diploma should complete a Petition to Receive a Diploma form at Washington County High School, located at 420 Riddleville Rd., Sandersville, GA. For more information, contact School Registrar Christy Hinton at 552-2324 extension 2211. There is no deadline to petition for a diploma under this new law.
