YES in a nutshell:

We toss the curriculum for the last week of school and embark on community service projects with 1180 7th and 8th grade students.  For 2018 the teachers have created 29 lessons that have a learning component and a community giving back component.  For instance, during 2017 the students in the Handiwork for Haiti project learned how to make coffee tables out of 2x4 boards.  Then they sold them and the money went to an orphanage in Haiti.  The Chronicles of Yarnia project learned how to couchette and made hats for a NICU.​

Commissioner’s Rules Concerning Substitute Assessments for Graduation

​The state of Texas requires high school students to meet the passing standard on five End-of-Course exams as a graduation requirement. (English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and US History). Recent legislation allows for students who meet the designated cut score on a college readiness exam (ie SAT, ACT, ACT PLAN, IB, PSAT, AP) to replace the EOC exam in the content area for which the required score was earned. Electing to use a college readiness exam as a substitute for a state EOC exam is at the discretion of the parent/ adult student. Students will be scheduled to take the designated EOC exam if not otherwise indicated by parent/ adult student with the required documentation provided to school counselor.

 Please click on the following link to review the Commissioner's Rules Concerning Substitute Assessments for Graduation: http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter101/ch101dd.html

If your student has a score(s) that qualifies please submit the score report(s) to Heather Sims, Assessment Administrator by April 2, 2018 for the Algebra 1 End of Course Exam. ​
