Oak Hill Middle School Eco Club receives donation
by FeliciaCummings/TheUnion-Recorder

Kathy Chandler, president of the Milledgeville Garden Club Council, presented a check for $500 to the Eco Club of Oak Hill Middle School to help assist the group in its environmental endeavors. The Milledgeville Garden Club Council is made up of members of the four local gardening clubs. ‘We chose this project because we’re passionate about gardening and we want children to know how to grow their food, where food comes from, and be able to appreciate the relationship we have with plants and the earth.

We just thought this was a worthwhile project for us to support,’ Chandler said. Students in the Eco Club are involved with gardening and environmental issues around the school, as well as in the community. Chuck Claxton, sponsor for the OHMS Eco Club, says they are appreciative for the donation and support from community organizations. ‘It’s groups like this that help sustain us by helping us out with money so we can buy our seeds every year or buy new soil or other equipment like tools and such,’ Claxton said.

Georgia High School Graduation Test Is Eliminated Effective Immediately!

On March 30, 2015, Governor Nathan Deal signed into law HB 91. This law retroactively eliminated the Georgia High School Graduation Test as a requirement for students who were enrolled in a Georgia public school during the years from 1981 to 2011.


This law makes it possible for those students to finally obtain their high school diploma who have met all requirements EXCEPT passing one or more sections of the Georgia High School Graduation Test. This bill allows those individuals to obtain their high school diploma so they can move on to a brighter future either in a specific career that they could not obtain before or enroll in postsecondary education.


The State of Georgia required local school systems to put into place a policy and procedure for these qualified students to petition the local school board to review their records and if they qualify under HB 91, receive their diploma.  The Baldwin County community has greatly benefited from this law.  As of the July 31st, over 255 diplomas have been issued to individuals that have qualified under HB 91.


Currently, petitions are being accepted at Baldwin County High School at any time for review.  Starting September 1st, in connection with a new school year, petitions will ONLY be accepted three times per year: October, February and June.  Individuals are able to pick up a petition at the Board Office, Baldwin County High School or print them from the district web site at any time but will not be able to submit them to Baldwin County High for review until the three selected months listed above.  If an extenuating circumstance arises where an individual needs to petition the local Board for their diploma in a month other than the three listed above, the local Board of Education will review the circumstance and make a decision to process the petition at that time or wait until the submission window.  


Any questions about HB 91 qualifications or local procedures can be answered by contacting Baldwin County High School at 478-453-6429 or Baldwin County Board of Education at 478-453-4176.   

 

Attached are the procedures that must be followed when a request is made by a petitioner to receive their high school diploma. The Petition form (click here for a copy) is available at the high school and the Baldwin County Board of Education.
