House Bill 91
  • Diploma Petition

    On Monday, March 30, 2015, Governor Nathan Deal signed into law a bill permitting former high school students who completed all coursework but failed to pass one or more portions of the Georgia High School Graduation Tests, the Georgia High School Writing Test or their predecessors to request a high school diploma.  Students' eligibility to receive a high school diploma pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 20-2-281.1 will be based on the graduation requirements in effect the year they first entered ninth grade.  To be considered for a high school diploma, former students may complete this petition and submit it along with a copy of some form of photo ID by mail or in person.  Petitions will also be made available in the office at OCHS. Each petition may take several weeks to review.

One Act Performance, a Class Act indeed!

BRAVO! to our cast members and crew of this fall's One Act competition.  Through the dedication of Bly Hartley, our Arts!Oglethorpe guru and community Drama volunteer, as well as Ms. Kitchens and the other rehearsal volunteers, this year's cast was able to showcase their impressive skills at the regional competition this past weekend.  They bested three other counties, Jasper, Rabun, and Elbert  with only Putnam county's 30+ member musical squeaking by them for the win.  Managing British accents and tongue twisting dialogue was no problem for these talented young ladies.  They came away with not only 2nd place, but also Best in Costume and both Jyanna Turner and Evie McGovern were recognized as District All-Star Cast Members!  The One Act cast will be giving an encore performance at the Crawford Schoolhouse this Thursday, the 27th, during the Arts!Oglethorpe potluck, from 6-8 p.m.  Everyone is invited to attend!
