House Bill 5

During this past Legislative session, House Bill 5 (HB5) was passed into law. This bill embodies significant changes to high school graduation requirements, the state assessment system and the state accountability system.  In regards to graduation requirements, House Bill 5 creates a single “Foundation Diploma” and eliminates the minimum, recommended and distinguished graduation plans that are currently in place.  It allows students to earn endorsements in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Business and Industry, Public Services, Arts and Humanities and Multidisciplinary Studies.  HB 5 creates a Distinguished Achievement level above the Foundation Diploma that can be attained in any of the above mentioned endorsement programs by completing an additional science and math credit. This becomes effective with the 2014-2015 freshmen class but students enrolled in high school prior to 2014-2015 will have the option of transitioning to this graduation program. In the Victoria ISD, we are embracing the changes to the new graduation requirements that were brought forward by House Bill 5.  As we embark upon our responsibility to inform students, parents and the community of these changes, we are committed to making this information readily available and accessible to all.
