    Answered . I am sorry for your difficulty but the state requirements for graduation and therefore your diploma are there for a reason.

    Have you researched the appeals process for the denial of your waiver? I would check with the state board of education. If you were on a 504 plan or IEP you may have other remedies. Good luck!
