HB 3826 does not apply to private, community or junior colleges **HB 3826, 80 th Legislature General Teaching Institutions Including Open Enrollment Institutions (does not apply to ACC) The Texas Education Code (TEC) defines general academic teaching institution" as a four-year institution of higher education and includes the following schools and universities: The University of Texas at Austin; The University of Texas at El Paso; The University of Texas of the Permian Basin; The University of Texas at Dallas; The University of Texas at San Antonio; Texas A&M University; The University of Texas at Arlington; Tarleton State University; Prairie View A&M University; Texas Maritime Academy; Texas Tech University; University of North Texas; Lamar University; Lamar State College--Orange; Lamar State College--Port Arthur; Texas A&M University--Kingsville; Texas A&M University--Corpus Christi; Texas Woman's University; Texas Southern University; Midwestern State University; University of Houston; University of Texas--Pan American; The University of Texas at Brownsville; Texas A&M University--Commerce; Sam Houston State University; Texas State University--San Marcos; West Texas A&M University; Stephen F. Austin State University; Sul Ross State University; Angelo State University; The University of Texas at Tyler; and any other college, university, or institution so classified as provided in this chapter or created and so classified, expressly or impliedly, by law. This list may not be comprehensive and is subject to change based on each institution s admissions policy. Benefits of the Recommended High School Program for Graduation The 81st Texas Legislature, 2009, passed House Bill (HB) 3, amending the Texas Education Code (TEC), , to require school districts to provide written notice to parents/guardians explaining the benefits of the Recommended High School Program (RHSP) for graduation before a student is permitted to take courses under the Minimum High School Program (MHSP). The Foundation High School Program replaces the Recommended High School and Distinguished Achievement High School Program for graduation for students who enter 9 th grade in and thereafter. The purpose of this correspondence is to ensure that parents/guardians are informed as to the programs and opportunities afforded to students graduating under the RHSP. Benefits of graduating under the Recommended High School Program include: College readiness - Many colleges and universities minimally require the RHSP for admission. In addition, students ranked in the top 10 percent of their graduating classes from an accredited Texas public high school are eligible for automatic admission to most Texas public universities if they have completed the RHSP or the Distinguished Achievement Program (DAP). The University of Texas at Austin is an exception to the top 10% rule as it will automatically admit all eligible 2015 summer/fall freshman applicants who rank within the top 7% of their high school graduating classes, with remaining spaces to be filled through holistic review. Recognition - The Recommended High School Program seal will be affixed to the Academic Achievement Record (AAR), or transcript, of students graduating under the RHSP. Hays CISD Page 2

3 Test results - Research suggests that students who take additional English, math, social studies, and science courses make higher scores on the SAT or ACT college entrance exams. The RHSP and the DAP requires four credits in each of these core subject areas. State & Local Limits Apply: Students must be aware of graduation requirements For students who entered 9 th grade before the The courses that receive local credits do not count 2015 school year.

TAKS Required for Graduation Students who entered Grade 9 before school year In addition to earning required credits for graduation, students must also pass the appropriate exit-level state mandated assessment. Students are required to pass the TAKS test to graduate. The TAKS has four sections: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students who fail to demonstrate mastery on the exit-level test will have opportunities at specified times, as required by the state, to retest in the section(s) failed. Students may be required to take additional courses to assist them in acquiring skills to pass the TAKS. These students may also attend tuition-free remediation classes in summer school. Special tutorial groups are set up from time to time, and an intensive study time may be provided the few days immediately before the retesting dates. A Personal Graduation Plan will be developed for students who have failed any section of the TAKS. The plan will include interventions to assist the student in passing the TAKS. Students who entered 9 th grade before must pass all sections of the TAKS test in order to participate in graduation ceremonies. Students who need to pass any sections of the TAKS should check with their counselor or teachers to find out the testing dates for For students entering 9 th grade in and after, TAKS tests will no longer be given.
