Graduation Requirements

Requirements for Incoming Freshmen 2014-15

With the passage of House Bill 5 by the Texas Legislature in 2013 came significant changes to requirements for high school graduation, graduation planning and state testing requirements at all levels. HB5 is designed to instill more flexibility in public education by enabling students to either pursue a traditional path into colleges and universities or move directly into the workforce to initiate a career path and help meet projected shorages of skilled workers.

The following links provide information related to graduation and graduation planning that will affect the freshman class of 2014-15 (the senior class of 2018) and all classes thereafter. It is critical that students and parents become familiar with these documents and actively seek answers and information from high school counselors, who are terrific resources for graduation planning.
