18A:7C-4. State-endorsed diploma
All students who meet State and local graduation requirements shall receive a State endorsed diploma; provided, however, that the Commissioner of Education shall approve any State endorsed diploma which utilizes the comprehensive assessment techniques as provided in section 3 of P.L. 1979, c. 241 (C. 18A:7C-3).
Local districts may not provide a high school diploma to students not meeting these standards.

Upon passing this test, a State endorsed diploma will be granted.
Each board of education shall provide, in a format approved by the Commissioner of Education, a performance transcript for each student leaving secondary school.
