1 CLASSIFICATION and GRADUATION CREDIT REQUIREMENTS For ALDINE, CARVER, EISENHOWER, MACARTHUR, NIMITZ, VICTORY Classification of high school students is based on the cumulative number of credits including specific course credits earned in each grade level as listed. For example, students must earn 1 credit in I in grade 9 before a student is eligible to be classified as a 10 th grader. Reclassification of students will be based on the credits earned by the beginning of each academic year. Students must meet 11 th grade classification requirements before being classified as a 12 th grader. A reclassified 10 th grade student is eligible for reclassification to 11 th grade if they meet certain grade and credit requirements. Please see your school counselor with questions about reclassification. The State Board of Education developed new requirements for students to receive a high school diploma in the State of Texas. These requirements include 4 years of mathematics and science. The number of credits required to receive a Recommended or Distinguished Achievement diploma increased from 24 to 26. Beginning with the freshmen class Integrated Physics and Chemistry (IPC) will no longer satisfy the science requirements for the Distinguished Achievement Plan, and will no longer satisfy the science requirements for the Recommended Plan after school year The chart below details classification and graduation requirements based on the year the student entered 9th grade: Entering Freshmen Requirements for Sophomore Classification Credits: Credits: Requirements for Junior Classification Requirements for senior classification Credits: Credits to graduate Entering Freshmen Courses: I Algebra I Biology or IPC 1 credit from W.

12 DISTINGUISHED ACHIEVEMENT PLAN WITH ADVANCED MEASURES The Distinguished Achievement Program (DAP) recognizes students who demonstrate levels of performance equivalent to college students or work done by professionals in the arts, sciences, business, industry, or in community service. STANDARDS FOR APPROVAL: Measures focus on demonstrated student performance at the college or professional level. Student performance is assessed through an external review process. REQUIREMENTS: To earn a Distinguished Achievement Seal on the transcript, a student must participate in the distinguished achievement program and receive any combination of four of the following advanced measures. (Examples: two AP examinations, one college course, one research project; four AP examinations): a score of three or above on The College Board Advanced Placement examination; a score of four or above on an International Baccalaureate examination; a grade of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher on courses that count for college credit, including tech prep programs; products of professional quality as judged by a panel of professionals in the field that is the focus of the project; original research/project conducted under the direction of mentor(s) and reported to an appropriate audience; (Students may only use two research projects as part of the four advanced measures.) a score on the PSAT that qualifies a student for recognition as a Commended Scholar or higher by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation; as part of the National Hispanic Scholar Program of The College Board; or as part of the National Achievement Scholarship Program for Outstanding Black Students of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The PSAT score may count as only one advanced measure regardless of the number of honors received by the student. The students in the Encounters Gifted and Talented Program are expected to attain the Distinguished Achievement Program Seal. The student may begin to acquire the advanced academic measures in the ninth grade.

13 DISTINGUISHED ACHIEVEMENT PLAN WITH ADVANCED MEASURES.CONTINUED In addition to completing the requirements of the High School Recommended Plan, students must successfully complete an additional year of foreign language and achieve any combination of four of the following advanced academic measures. These measures must focus on demonstrated student performance at the college or professional level. Student performance on advanced measures must be assessed through an external review process such as original research. Original research projects may not be used for more than two of the four advanced measures. (A) Original research/project that is: (i) judged by a panel of professionals in the field that is the focus of the project; or (ii) conducted under the direction of mentor(s) and reported to an appropriate audience; and (iii) related to the required curriculum set forth in chapter 74.1 Essential knowledge and skills. To attain this measure, a student may: (a) orally defend an original research project at the state level (b) orally defend an original research project meeting the Texas Performance Standards Guidelines. For group projects, or projects where there are no opportunities for individual oral defense, the student must notify district personnel (the campus G/T coordinator) of the intent to defend. Provisions are then made by the district Gifted and Talented Program Director to provide the individual an opportunity to defend the research product by a panel of experts. In this defense the student documents individual work and advanced understanding of the research. Or A student may initiate or continue an original research project, under the direction of a teacher of record. The research may take place during a core class, independent studies or outside of the classroom. In addition to meeting the research requirements, the student must work with a mentor or mentors and orally defend research to a panel of experts. (B) Test data where a student receives: (i) a score of three or above on The College Board advanced placement examination (ii) a score of four or above on an International Baccalaureate examination; or (iii) a score on the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT) that qualifies a student for recognition as a Commended Scholar or higher by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation; as part of the National Hispanic Scholar Program of the College Board; Or, as part of the National Achievement Scholarship Program for Outstanding African-American Students of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. The PSAT score may count as only one advanced measure regardless of the number of honors received by the student; Or (C)College academic courses and tech-prep articulated college courses with a grade of 3.0 or higher.

14 No substitutions are allowed in the Distinguished Achievement Program. Encounters Gifted and Talented Students are placed on the Distinguished Achievement Plan in the beginning of the 9 th grade unless the student and the student s parent specifically request in writing that the student not participate in the Distinguished Achievement Plan.

17 In addition to earning required credits for graduation, students must also pass the exit-level Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS) in language arts, writing, and mathematics. The TAAS tests are administered in the spring of the sophomore year. Students who do not pass one or more tests may take the test/s again in the fall of the following year and again in the spring. Students who complete their course work but are denied a diploma because they did not pass a test may take it again each time it is offered. In order for a student to receive a diploma in high school, they must pass all three portions of the TAAS test. Students who fail to demonstrate mastery on this exit-level test will be placed in remedial classes for local credit. An exception may be made for students enrolled in Career/Technical Education courses as individualized remediation will be offered through these courses. These students may also attend tuition-free TAAS remediation classes in the summer. TAKS REQUIREMENTS (Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills) For Students Who Entered 9 th Grade in or After In addition to earning credits for graduation, students must also pass the exit-level Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) in language arts, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. The TAKS tests are administered in the junior year. Students who do not pass one or more tests may take the test/s again in the fall of the following year and again in the spring. Students who complete their course work but are denied a diploma because they did not pass a test may take it again each time it is offered. In order for a student to receive a diploma in high school, they must pass all portions of the TAKS test. Students who fail to demonstrate mastery on this exit-level test will be placed in remedial classes for local credit. An exception may be made for students enrolled in Career/Technical Education courses, as individualized remediation will be offered through these courses. Students who fail to demonstrate mastery on the exit-level test will be required to attend a TAKS summer preparation course. This course is free to the student and designed to help students acquire skills necessary to successfully pass the TAKS exam. Students will earn.5 local credit for taking this course. Aldine Independent School District believes that students should be grouped for instruction in a way that facilitates learning. Grouping, or assignment to courses, is based primarily on student performance. This method narrows the ability range of the students with whom a teacher works, resulting in a more individualized program for the student. The entry and exit level criteria for each level are listed below. Teachers and counselors can assist the student in selecting the appropriate level of instruction for a course.
