FAIRFIELD COUNTY — Through the passage of Act 155, the S.C. General Assembly approved the removal of the exit exam as a requirement for graduation beginning with the graduating class of 2015.
The elimination of the exit exam (BSAP, HSAP) requirement is retroactive to the graduating class of 1990. However, all petitions must be received by your school district no later than Dec. 31, 2015.
If you were denied a high school diploma because you were unsuccessful in passing the exit exam, you have until Dec. 31, 2015, to file a petition with Fairfield County School District. A petition and a valid photo ID must be submitted to Fairfield County School District before the deadline.
Petitions could take six to eight weeks for processing, printing, and delivery. Contact Leevette Malloy at 803-635-4607 for more information.
