6 4x4 Graduation Requirements Mathematics-Recommended Plan Precalculus, Pre-AP Precalculus Independent Study in Mathematics AP Statistics AP Calculus AB; AP Calculus BC Mathematical Models with Applications Concurrent enrollment in college mathematics courses

7 4x4 Graduation Requirements Mathematics-Recommended Plan If selected, Mathematical Models with Applications must be taken prior to Algebra II. The SBOE may designate additional courses at a later point in time.

8 4x4 Graduation Requirements Mathematics-Distinguished Achievement Plan Mathematics—four credits  Algebra I  Geometry, Pre-AP Geometry  Algebra II, Pre-AP Algebra II  an additional SBOE approved mathematics course for which Algebra II is a prerequisite

9 4x4 Graduation Requirements Mathematics-Distinguished Achievement Plan Precalculus, Pre-AP Precalculus Independent Study in Mathematics AP Statistics AP Calculus AB; AP Calculus BC Concurrent enrollment in college mathematics courses

10 4x4 Graduation Requirements Science-Recommended Plan Science – four credits  Biology, Pre-AP Biology  Two or more from this list Integrated Physics and Chemistry (IPC) Chemistry, Pre-AP Chemistry Physics, Principles of Technology I, Pre-AP Physics AND any of the following courses:

11 4x4 Graduation Requirements Science-Recommended Plan Fourth Year Science Courses  Aquatic Science  Environmental Systems  AP Biology  AP Chemistry  AP Physics B or C  Scientific Research and Design  Anatomy and Physiology of Human Systems  Dual Credit Anatomy and Physiology of Human Systems  Medical Microbiology and Pathophysiology  Principles of Technology I  Concurrent enrollment in college courses NEW courses: TEKS to be developed

12 Science Recommended Plan  IPC may not be taken as the final course.  The SBOE may designate additional courses at a later point in time.

13 Recent SBOE Guidance  Under the RHSP, a student may take a fourth science course prior to successful completion of biology, chemistry, and/or physics.  Under the RHSP, a student may take a fourth science course concurrently with biology, chemistry, or physics.  Under the DAP, after successful completion of two science courses, a student may take the third and fourth science courses concurrently.

14 4x4 Graduation Requirements Science-Distinguished Achievement Plan Science—four credits  Biology, Pre-AP Biology  Chemistry, Pre-AP Chemistry  Physics, Pre-AP Physics  Any of the following courses:

15 4x4 Graduation Requirements Science-Distinguished Achievement Plan Fourth Year Science Courses  Aquatic Science  Environmental Systems  AP Biology  AP Chemistry  AP Physics B or C  Scientific Research and Design  Anatomy and Physiology of Human Systems  Dual Credit Anatomy and Physiology of Human Systems  Medical Microbiology and Pathophysiology  Concurrent enrollment in college courses NEW courses: TEKS are being developed *Note: Integrated Physics and Chemistry and Principles of Technology not included

16 4x4 Graduation Requirements Foreign Language Requirement  RHSP – 2 years of the same foreign language required  DAP – 3 years of the same foreign language required Choices of foreign language: Spanish (academic, Pre-AP, dual credit, AP) French (academic, Pre-AP, AP) German (academic, Pre-AP, dual credit, AP)

17 4x4 Graduation Requirements Physical Education  1.5 credits required  Maximum of 2.0 credits allowed (additional 0.5 to count as additional elective)

18 4x4 Graduation Requirements Other Requirements  1.0 Fine Art credit  0.5 credit in Health/0.5 credit in Speech  1.0 credit in technology applications course  Additional electives: 3.5 for RHSP, 2.5 for DAP
