CCAT Dunking Booth at Frank Smith Kick-off Classic - Saturday, Aug 23rd

Changes in the Georgia High School Graduation Test - Next Testing Opportunity Week of Sept. 8th


 

Students seeking a Georgia high school diploma, who entered high school prior to July 2011, must pass the Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT) in four content areas as well as the Georgia High School Writing Test.

As a result of amendments to State Board of Education rule in April 2011, the group of students who enrolled in high school from Fall 2008 through June 2011 must demonstrate their proficiency in the four GHSGT content areas by either passing each of the GHSGTs or by passing one of the two equivalent End of Course Tests in each corresponding content area. These students are also required to take and pass the Georgia High School Writing Test (GHSWT) to be eligible for a diploma.

Students who enter grade nine in 2011 – 2012 will not take, and are not required to pass, the GHSGT. They are required to take and pass the Georgia High School Writing Test.

Students who do not pass all the required tests but have met all other graduation may return to attempt the graduation test(s) again, as often as necessary to qualify for a high school diploma.  These tests will be given in September, November, and March.  There will no longer be a summer administration for the GHSGT.  There will continue to be a summer administration in June of the GHSWT. 

To participate in these testing opportunities you must pre-register.  The next testing date is the week of September 8, 2014.    For more information and pre-registration contact Carol Yeomans at 912 729 7318.
