•
10th-12th for 2014-2015 can choose M/R/D or Foundation Program in 2014-2015 and after…A student who
entered Grade 9 prior to 2014-2015 may, at any time prior to graduation and upon request, choose to complete
the curriculum requirements required for graduation under a different program than that selected by the student
during the 2014-2015 school year.
TSI and College Prep
•
Still awaiting some clarification from THECB
•
Can look at 11th grade this year and see if they meet TSI standards via PLAN, PSAT, SAT, ACT-according to chart, or
EOC (?), and/or Coursework (determined by district)…

demonstrates that the student is unlikely to be able to
complete the second credit, the student may substitute
another appropriate course as follows:
– Special Topics in Language and Culture
– World History Studies or World Geography Studies for a student
who is not required to complete both by the local district

mathematics, science, or social studies
– two credits in career and technical education or technology
applications
• The determination regarding a student's ability to complete
the LOTE credit requirements will be made by:
– the student's ARD committee if the student receives special
education services under the TEC, Chapter 29, Subchapter A or
– the committee established for the student under Section 504,

current graduation programs to graduate foundation only in spring
2014. *
http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter074/ch074bb.html
• The Commissioner has adopted a transition plan to replace the
MHSP, RHSP, and DAP with the Foundation High School Program
beginning with the 2014-2015 school year.
• Students who are in grade 9, 10, or 11 in the 2013-­2014 school
year must be given a choice to graduation the MHSP, RHSP, DAP,

Multidisciplinary Scenario…
BREAK!
Planning for Endorsements:
Identify what you have…
Step by Step – Planning for Endorsements
Gather Data
– Identify a list of courses currently offered under
each endorsement
– List multiple coherent sequence pathways under
endorsements
– Identify teacher certifications and review for
eligibility to teach other courses
(Ag teachers can teach in 8 clusters, FCS in 5 clusters,
Math and Science can teach in multiple clusters)
Step by Step – Planning for Endorsements
Review and Consider Alternatives
– Review dual and articulated credit offerings
– Consider alternating course offerings by year
– Consider offering Business Information Management
instead of Principles of Information Technology
– Consider use of Virtual Network and/or competency
based program courses to complete endorsements.
(Note: No weighted funding on these)
Step by Step – Planning for Endorsements
Review and Consider Alternatives
Locally Developed Courses
– Districts may offer courses to satisfy advanced English,
math or science requirements if developed locally by
the district in partnership with a public or private IHE
and local business, labor, and community leaders
– Districts must annually report to TEA the names of
locally developed courses, programs, institutions of
higher education, and internships in which the

Coherent Sequences…
Coherent Sequence of Courses
• You are already offering coherent sequences!
• Student Attendance Accounting Handbook
– Section 5.2 p. 160
– 5. To be eligible for CTE contact hour funding, your
district must offer at least one coherent sequence
of courses in at least three different career
clusters149.
Coherent Sequence of Courses
Defined as:
– An educational plan of rigorous and challenging
academic courses and relevant CTE courses
appropriate for a given career program of study. This
plan may include work-based learning experiences
leading to both academic and technical knowledge
and skills needed to prepare for further education
and careers in current or emerging professions.

– Current recommended course sequences for each
CTE career cluster can be found at:
http://www.tea.state.tx.us/index2.aspx?id=5415
Current Coherent Sequence Example
Coherent Sequence of Courses
– Create coherent sequences for the courses you
will be offering in each endorsement area.
– Use the current coherent sequences for guidance.
Coherent Sequence for Endorsement Example
Implementation of
Endorsements
Implementation of Endorsements
• Share plans with advisory committee and
administration
• Secure board approval
• Consider career investigation interest and
aptitude test for 8th graders
• Have 8th graders select endorsement area and
secure guardian approval
Implementation of Endorsements
Develop a marketing plan
Share endorsement options to students, parents,
teachers, counselors, etc.
Develop flyers and materials including all
endorsements
Provide an all inclusive course catalog online
Include workforce and labor market information
Emphasize college and career preparation
Implementation of Endorsements
Communicate, Communicate!
Communicate endorsement options with all teachers
Connect with parents and students at school events
Distribute brochures and flyers
Develop endorsement videos
Letters to parents
Develop web pages specific to endorsement options
and include information regarding CTE
During the first school year a student is enrolled in a high
school (or at high school level for charters…and again
during each year of a student’s enrollment in high school
or at the high school level, a school counselor must provide
information about postsecondary education to the student
and student’s parent or guardian…must include…
• The importance of postsecondary ed.
• The advantages of earning an endorsement,
performance acknowledgement, and completing
distinguished level under the foundation program
Currently-only required during first year and senior year.

PGP Example
Personal Graduation Plans…
PGP (HB5, Section 12-14)
Middle School
• Principal will designate counselor, teacher, or other appropriate
individual
• Each student enrolled that does not perform satisfactorily on a
state assessment
• Each student not likely to receive a high school diploma before the
5th year of enrollment in grade 9
• TEA with TWC and THECB will prepare and make available
information that explains the advantages of the distinguished
graduation plan, and each endorsement
• Info published on school website (English and other language
(20 students in a grade level)
PGP (HB5, Section 12-14)
Personal Graduation Plans…
High School
Current law requires
PGP for limited students
and do not require
identification of
intended coursework.
•
Principal will designate a school counselor, or school administrator
•
Review PGP options with EACH student entering 9th grade with that student’s parent or
guardian
•
Must include…benefits of distinguished level of achievement, and Endorsements
•
Must be confirmed and signed by student/parent/guardian before the end of the school year
•
Must identify a course of study that
•
Promotes college and workforce readiness and career placement/advancement
•
Facilitates the student’s transition from secondary to postsecondary education
May not prevent a student/guardian form confirming/signing a PGP that includes pursuit of
the distinguished level/endorsement
•
•
Student may amend the PGP after initial confirmation-school must send written notification to
parent/guardian regarding the change
•
TEA with TWC and THECB will prepare and make available information that explains the
advantages of the distinguished graduation plan, and each endorsement
•
