5 High School Graduation Requirements (a) To receive a high school diploma, a student entering Grade 9 in the school year and thereafter must complete the following: (1) requirements of the Foundation HS Program (74.12); (2) testing requirements for graduation as specified in Ch. 101; and (3)Demonstrated proficiency, as determined by the district…in delivering clear verbal messages; choosing effective nonverbal behaviors; listening for desired results; applying valid critical-thinking and problem- solving processes; and identifying, analyzing, developing, and evaluating communication skills needed for professional and social success in interpersonal situations, group interaction, and personal and professional presentations.

6 Transition Plan Students who are in grade 9, 10, or 11 in the school year must be given a choice to graduate the MHSP, RHSP, DAP or Foundation HS Program. This includes endorsements, Performance Acknowledgements, and the DAP under this plan.

7 Transition Plan A school district shall allow a student who entered Grade 9 in the or before to complete the curriculum requirements required for high school graduation under the foundation high school program if the student chooses during the school year to take courses under this program;

8 Transition Plan A student who entered Grade 9 prior to the school year may, at any time prior to graduation and upon request, choose to complete the curriculum requirements required for high school graduation under a different program than that selected by the student during the school year.

9 Transition Plan: Graduates Only those who graduate before September 2014 are eligible. A student must earn at least 22 and one-half credits to complete the foundation high school program. English language arts--four credits. Three of the credits must consist of English I, II, and III. Mathematics--three credits. Two of the credits must consist of Algebra I and Geometry.

10 Transition Plan: Graduates Science--three credits. One credit must consist of Biology. Social studies--three credits. Two of the credits must consist of United States History Studies Since 1877 (one credit), United States Government (one-half credit), and Economics with Emphasis on the Free Enterprise System and Its Benefits (one-half credit).

11 FOUNDATION PLAN

12 Foundation – Statutory Requirements Beginning in the school year, a school district must ensure that each student, on entering ninth grade indicates in writing an endorsement that the student intends to earn. TEA indicated that the endorsement chosen by the student will be reported on the 1 st PEIMS submission each year A district must permit a student to choose, at any time, to earn an endorsement other than the endorsement the student previously indicated.

24 Speech Communication Applications (One-Half Credit) – is available as the ½ of the fourth ELA credit, subject to prerequisite requirements Independent Study in Speech (One-Half Credit) – is available as the ½ of the fourth ELA credit, subject to prerequisite requirements

25 ENDORSEMENT PREREQUISITES

26 Endorsements – Prerequisites A student must earn at least 26 credits to earn an endorsement, AND: curriculum requirements for the endorsement 4 credits in math – (One more than Foundation) 4 credits in science - (One more than Foundation) 2 additional elective credits

27 Endorsements – Statutory Requirements Each school district must make available at least one endorsement. A school district that offers only one endorsement curriculum must offer the multidisciplinary studies.

28 Endorsements – Statutory Requirements A school district defines advanced courses and determines a coherent sequence of courses for an endorsement area, provided the prerequisites are followed. A course completed as part of the set of 4 courses needed to satisfy an endorsement requirement may also satisfy a requirement under the foundation high school program, including an elective requirement.

30 Math Models (MMA) Sequencing Notes Algebra One then Geometry then MMA then Algebraic Reasoning is an acceptable endorsement math sequences long as the endorsement does not require Algebra II or courses beyond Algebra II. MMA will not be eliminated after Sept. 1, But it can NOT count as the fourth Math credit for an Endorsement after this date. Algebra I then Geometry then MMA would fulfill the Foundation Program math requirement After Sept 1, 2015, MMA will not be on the list of 4th math credit available, but Algebraic Reasoning would count. “A student may complete a course listed in paragraph (2) of this subsection before or after completing a course listed in §74.12(b)(2)(A) of this title.”
