3What is the purpose of HB 5? Simply, to give students a more relevant chance of college entrance, career recognition goals, and allowing the student to make those course selections with their parents and the school so they can better prepare for a career.Students will enter under the new 26 credit Foundation Graduation Plan with an Endorsement .

5New Graduation Requirements of HB 5 #1 College or Post Secondary Readiness
6College ReadinessCollege readiness can be defined as the level of preparation necessary for students to enroll and succeed—without remediation—in entry-level, credit bearing, general education courses.
7New Graduation Requirements of HB 5 #2 Career Readiness
8Career Readiness Career readiness involves three major skill areas: Core academic skills and the ability to apply those skills in the workplaceEmployability skills such as critical thinking and responsibility that are essential to all career areasTechnical, job-specific skills related to a specific career pathway that offer family-sustaining wages and opportunities for advancement.
9New Graduation Requirements of HB 5 College or Post Secondary ReadinessCareer Awareness/Exploration/Planning for PK-12Parental Engagement Component in selecting credit choices for your student’s four-year Personal Graduation PlanWhat is a creditOne credit = 1 full year in a classOne half credit = 1 semester of a classTo earn a credit:Semester average must be 70% or greaterMust attend 90% of days allotted each year for course credit
10Key Components of HB 5 – Graduation Requirements HB 5 eliminates the Minimum, Recommended, and Advanced high school graduation plansThe new Graduation plan is called the Foundation High School Program (FHSP), with career pathway endorsementsExpanded Career and Technology courses to satisfy endorsement requirementsRequired for Freshman entering 9th grade in , optional for current high school students.
11As a parent, what do you need to do? Suggestions:Attend this meetingBe aware of credit requirements for graduationTalk to your student about their future goalsExplore all of the possibilities that are available for college and careersKeep in contact with your student’s counselor at Ore City High SchoolStudents may change Endorsement but make sure Endorsement requirements are able to be met8. Realize we are learning about this plan, too.Let me take a moment to reinforce attendance. Attendance is critical at every step in a student’s education journey, beginning in Kindergarten and continuing through high school. Under HB 5,there are additional consequences for students whose absences exceed 10% of class sessions. Not only does the student risk losing credit for the course, but a grade will not be issued until the parent addresses the problem with school personnel and finds out exactly what the child needs to recover credit.
12Present & Past Graduation Plans Students beginning high school in must complete the requirements of the new graduation program.Students enrolled in high school prior to will have the choice to complete their current (MHSP, RHSP, or DAP) graduation program or to transition to the new Foundation High School Program.
13Personal Graduation Plans This academic year, parents & 8th grade students will create a plan for high school years and beyondCounselors will work with 8th grade students to discuss credits, grades, GPA, & high school graduation requirements.Upon entering 9th grade, a student must indicate (in writing) an endorsement he/she intends to earn.Students must be allowed to choose a different endorsement at any timeAlso, any student may elect to take Algebra II at the appropriate time thus making them eligible for automatic admission into state universities if they graduate in the top 10% of their class. Speaking of Higher Education, a student must take the Texas Success Initiative test before enrolling in a dual credit class at the end of their Sophomore or Junior year. You may choose to have Alg II and English III EOC exams take the place of taking the TSI or take an advanced level college preparatory ELA/Math class to earn entrance to Northeast Texas Community College whom we partner with. If you choose to go to another college, you may request this from the Commissioner of Education for a review.
