ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Board members approved a plan to help some students who didn't graduate get a diploma.
It's based on a bill Governor Nathan Deal recently signed that retro-actively removes the graduation test that was in place from 1994 to 2011.
Students who never passed that test but completed all other graduation requirements can now submit school documents online to be verified.
"It's going to be a tremendous challenge to us but it's going to be so good for those students who for whatever reason and I could really tell you some more stories of people who have taken one segment of that test over and over again, had a good grade point average but couldn't walk because of that one test," said Dr. David Mosely, Dougherty County School Superintendent.
Several former students have already expressed interest in getting their diplomas.
