This law provides that students

additional details and requirements
regarding the ability of students no

a high school diploma was due to
not passing any part of the graduation tests.
The Burke County Public School

longer enrolled in Burke County
High School who were denied a
high school diploma solely for not
achieving a passing score on any
of the graduation tests and met all
