Clarification on English & Math Course Scheduling & Prerequisites

  • English Course Clarification…
    • During the 84th Texas Legislature in spring of 2015, it was voted into law that students on the Foundation High School Program must successfully complete English I, II, and III prior to enrolling in the advanced English course.
    • This would apply to any and all of the advanced English courses, not just English IV.
    • The law is clear that students must successfully complete English I, II, and III before enrolling in English IV (or the advanced course being substituted for English IV).
  • Algebra 1 Course Clarification
    • Students must have credit in Algebra 1 in order to move on to take any other level of math.

Parents, if your child does not pass Algebra 1 or an English class, please plan on them attending summer school.
