Staff Analysis of the Legislation

            This bill would amend Part 7 of Article 7 of Chapter 3 of Title 20 of the O.C.G.A. to require graduates of a private eligible high school to have a minimum GPA of 3.7 and a 1,200 score on the SAT or 26 on the ACT. Graduates of public eligible high schools would have to be in the top 3% of the graduating class, and the valedictorian and salutatorian automatic eligibility would be eliminated , though those students would still obviously qualify.
