Act 688 of 1993 states in Section 2.1 (a) that "Beginning with the 1994-1995 school year, a school district shall attach a seal, stamp, or other symbol to transcripts and diplomas awarded to high school students who have completed either the college preparatory core curriculum or the technical preparation core curriculum with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.75."

The State Board of Education has approved the State Board of Education Seal as the seal to be affixed to the diplomas and transcripts for this year. The State Board of Education Seal is to be used for completion of either path of study, provided the 2.75 GPA has been maintained. School districts may obtain seals from:

Consolidated Printing
P. O. Box 626
Van Buren, AR 72956
Telephone: 1-800-542-1013
Fax: 1-501-474-3867

School districts may place bulk orders through their area cooperative to accommodate minimum quantity and efficient turn around. A minimum of 100 seals must be ordered at approximately .086 cents per seal. The orders are to be filled and delivered within fifteen (15) working days after the receipt of the school district's purchase order. Two seals per qualifying student should be purchased, one seal for the transcript and one for the diploma.
