3 End of Course Exams  Reduced from 15 to 5  Those five tests are: ELA I, ELA II, Algebra I, Biology and US History  Reading and Writing were combined into one English/Language Arts test at levels I & II

4 New Graduation Plan Created  Foundation High School Program (FHSP)  It also added Endorsements, Distinguished Level of Achievement and Performance Acknowledgements  Starts with next year’s freshmen (cohort 2018)

5 Conroe ISD High School Graduation Requirements for Current Students (4 X 4) Recommended HS Plan Distinguished HS Plan  English 4 credits  Math 4 credits  Science 4 credits  Soc.

9 CISD may decide to add courses to the Foundation Program.

10 In Addition to the FHSP, Students Will Need to Choose an Endorsement  STEM (science, technology, engineering, math)  Business and Industry  Public Services  Arts and Humanities  Multidisciplinary Studies  Specific courses for each endorsement will be decided during the school year.  General descriptions of each endorsement follows

11 The FHSP with Endorsement Each endorsement requires 26 credits total, including:  4 th math (STEM will most likely require Alg.II)  4 th science  Additional electives within the endorsement  NOTE – specific requirements will not be known for each endorsement until the State Board of Education makes the final ruling.

12 Endorsements

13 STEM  Requires Algebra II, Chemistry and Physics, and  Coherent sequence in CTE STEM courses, or  Coherent sequence of four courses in computer science, or  Four courses in mathematics, or  Four courses in science
