Diplomas in jeopardy

Colquitt County - Right now, 110 seniors at Colquitt County High School are lacking passing scores in at least one area of the test. Guidance Director Jim Herschell says tutorial programs have been set up after school and students are getting extra help in classes to prepare for a retest.

He says, "We think it's important that we give them every opportunity we can and give them every opportunity to have a passing score, so we can honor those students at graduation."

If the students do not pass the test, they will have an opportunity to retest this summer, and the school will hold a graduation ceremony for those students when they pass the test.
