10 So, what matters right now? TEA and SBOE need to “fill in” extant information gaps. When everything else seems to be changing, students are still students… and adult actions need to reflect what is best for students within available means. Planning and decision-making will be focused and prioritized.

11 House Bill 5 by Aycock House: 147 to 0 vote Senate: 31 to 0 vote

13 Excluding EOC assessments for now, what implications does this new graduation model have for Plano ISD? For example: Will we keep our “basic” graduation plan at 24 credits or will we change it to 22? Will we keep our “basic” graduation plan at 24 credits or will we change it to 22? Will we continue to require Health? Communication Applications? Will we continue to require Health? Communication Applications?

14 For example: Will we keep our “basic” graduation plan at 24 credits or will we change it to 22? Will we keep our “basic” graduation plan at 24 credits or will we change it to 22? Will we continue to require Health? Communication Applications? Will we continue to require Health? Communication Applications? The following 3 slides list the brainstorm of implications by secondary principals on 7/25/13

15 Will we keep our “basic” graduation plan at 24 credits or will we change it to 22? Will we continue to require Health? Communication Applications? How will this affect staffing? SS requirement at the 9/10, number of coaches in SS, choices in math and science, certifications, electives, foreign language requirement - foundation plan including two years of language (need for additional ASL sections?), Comp Prog will count as a foreign language Moving credit bearing courses to middle school CPR and oral health required – keeping this within the Health course curriculum (a reason for maintaining local requirement for Health Students’ selection of endorsement path will affect staffing How do we handle requests from 9 th, 10 th, 11 th graders requesting schedule changes this year due to new grad requirements? What defines advanced courses during the transition? How will NCAA and UIL define advanced courses? GPA weighting for advanced classes as definition of advanced course changes Is CTE certification required to teach the advanced math and science courses? Teachers will be teaching a more varied schedule, requiring additional preps Will there be certifications needed for each course? US History course – where should this course be offered? HS or SHS? Implications are broaded than just the SS area – where does it make sense to offer courses with our 9/10 and 11/12 split?

16 Does everyone offer all endorsements? Endorsements at 9/10 and 11/12? Alignment of US History course with 8 th grade course and US History course? How is accountability determined for SHS? Credits needed for moving from HS to SHS needs to be examined Sp Ed students needing modifications – can a student still pursue an endorsement? Do we keep our local graduation requirement of 24 for mimimum for the new foundation plan? Will we allow students to graduate in potentially three years plus one course? Impact on ADA and dollar Implication for students attending SPC and endorsement path? Humanities and credits (English and World History) Clarification for students on foundation plan allowing them to apply to a four year college? How does the new culture of choice for students fit with our high expectations? With flexibility carries responsibility: how do we help our students and families make the best choices? Impact on counselors – getting the communication to students and families, keeping all opportunities available With the endorsement pathways, career choices and paths become much more apparent, and need for beginning this conversation earlier will be important Regarding US History moving to a different level – impact on duel credit and American Studies

17 Will there be more courses offered online? Impact on AP courses – will there be additional AP offerings with students having more choices? Will specialized offerings and endorsements require more double blocking? Questions on sp ed students and how this affects their graduation options? With more flexibility, could there be a different approach to those traditionally difficult courses? (Algebra offered over a 2 year period) With increased flexibility in the grad plan, can we move more sp ed students to the foundation or endorsement plan? How does the new grad plan affect our historic high performance on SAT/ACT? IB? Balance between choice for students and taking the easier path? How does the communication to students about the different endorsement pathways look? Equal opportunity? Recruitment vs informing the students about the best fit

19 Some HB 5 Implementation Issues Strategic budgeting, delivery and evaluation of accelerated instruction Support for transition to new graduation plans – Notices required (and translations, communication strategies, etc.) – Master course catalogue review – Staffing for delivery of endorsement courses and substitutions – Training for counselors AND registrars – Reprogramming of AARs Infrastructure to support universal high school PGPs
