The student and their parent (or person standing in parental relation) are advised by a school counselor about benefits of graduating with an endorsement; and II. Written consent (by parent or person standing in parental relation) is filed with the school counselor, using a TEA formulated form. E) A distinguished level of achievement can be earned by completing all requirements under the Foundation High School Program, curriculum requirements for at least one endorsement, and completing four years of science and four years of mathematics, which must include Algebra II.

6 F) All transfer students are eligible to receive a high school diploma, but must complete all aforementioned graduation requirements.
