4 Endorsement Guide Overview This Endorsement Guide is designed to provide you with information about the new Texas Foundation Endorsement Graduation Plan. The purpose of the State s change to the new graduation plan is to provide students greater flexibility and choice in the selection of courses that will best prepare them for their individual postsecondary goals. Employers and leaders in the Texas workforce have encouraged career oriented training and certification at the high school level to help meet their growing demands. Starting in the spring of 2014, all 8 th graders will be required to choose one of five endorsements as outlined in the new graduation plan. The five endorsement areas are: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); Business and Industry; Public Services; Arts and Humanities; and Multidisciplinary Studies. The earned Endorsement will be reflected on the student s official transcript at the completion of their high school career. How are the Endorsements organized? As you use this guide, you will see recommended s (or coherent sequences of courses) organized by career clusters within each of the Endorsements. A career cluster is a grouping of occupations and broad industries based on commonalities. These career clusters are part of the Achieve Texas College and Career Initiative that is designed to help students (and their parents) make informed education decisions. It is based on the idea that the education of the 21st century should combine rigorous academics with relevant career education. When schools integrate academic and technical education, students can see the "relevance" of what they are learning. The s allow students to study a particular field in depth and help to facilitate a seamless transition from secondary to postsecondary opportunities. Required Parent Conference: Please join your 8th grade student and a PfISD school counselor to discuss high school course selection and your child s individual Endorsement Graduation Plan as it relates to his/her unique interests and future career goals. This meeting benefits your child s school success and also satisfies state law, which requires an individual meeting with each parent about the new Endorsement Graduation Plan. Here are some tips to help you prepare for the conference: Use Endorsement Guide to help your student select an Endorsement and Log on to Bridges.com to assist your student with their four year plan and course selection, here s the basic log in information: Portfolio name: pisd###### (Student ID) Password: Student Birthdate (ex ) Attend scheduled appointment with your student and PISD counselor Your involvement in the process of helping your student prepare for high school is critical. We hope this Endorsement Guide will be a valuable resource in this exciting journey! 3
