Elimination of the General Achievement Diploma
Purpose of legislation
The legislation eliminated the General Achievement Diploma by folding it into the Adult High School Diploma, which would be re-named the General Achievement Adult High School Diploma. The legislation added a requirement that adult students would need to earn a Board of Education-approved career and technical education credential, such as the successful completion of an industry certification, a state licensure examination, a national occupational competency assessment, or the Virginia workplace readiness skills assessment in order to be awarded the diploma.
