Graduation Planning Parent Information Nights
Approved by the State Board of Education (SBOE) and adopted by the 83rd Texas Legislature in 2013, HB5 provides the new graduation requirements beginning with incoming 9th-graders in the 2014-2015 school year and each year thereafter.
As part of the student’s Personal Graduation Plan, HB 5 requires that each 8th grade student and their parent develop and confirm a HB 5 Endorsement and Career Pathway Plan to set a career focus and guide students through high school course work. As part of this plan, the student must select a program of study that will earn them an endorsement in one of five areas set by the state.
In order to assist parents and students understand the Endorsements and the Career Pathway plan, Ysleta ISD is offering parent information meetings. These meetings will provide details pertaining to new graduation requirements and give participants an opportunity to ask questions. Parents should attend these meetings with their 8th grade student at their middle school or high school in their area.
