History of the
Hamblen County Diploma Project

The Tennessee Diploma Project is led by the Tennessee Alignment Committee, a panel of state and local government officials, and business, postsecondary and K-12 leaders from across the state. The ADP network gives our state a blueprint for making our standards more rigorous and our graduation requirements more in line with demands of college and work.

The Hamblen County Diploma project website was created by HC*EXCELL and the Hamblen County P-16 Council to increase our community’s awareness  of changes in K-12 education on a national, state and local level and why they were necessary.

The Tennessee Department of Education passed new graduation standards on January 25, 2008, that became effective with the High School Freshman Class of 2009-2010.
