Georgia Legislature: School testing, high school top honors for the dual-enrolled bills merged

Bills merged Tuesday passed the House and now must pass the Senate Thursday, the final day of the legislation session

The Georgia House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a Senate measure that attempts to improve the usefulness of tests required in public schools.

Senate Bill 211 was amended with a House bill that ensures that students who are dual-enrolled in high school and college will be in the running to be valedictorian or salutatorian, even if they don’t physically attend the high school.

Because SB 211 now contains a rider with the language in House Bill 114, the package must return to the Senate for final approval on Thursday, the last day of this year’s legislative session.
