HOUSE BILL 5 INFORMATION

House Bill 5 brings significant changes to high school graduation requirements, the state assessment system and the state accountability system. In regards to graduation requirements, House Bill 5 creates a single “foundation diploma” and eliminates the minimum, recommended and distinguished graduation plans that are currently in place. It allows students to earn endorsements in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), business and industry, public services, Arts and humanities and multidisciplinary studies. House Bill 5 also creates a distinguished achievement level above the Foundation Diploma that can be attained in any of the above mentioned endorsement programs by completing an additional science and math credit.

In the area of “assessment,” House Bill 5 reduces the number of end-of-course exams (EOCs) from 15 to 5. The five EOCs will consist of English I, English II (reading and writing), Algebra I, Biology and U.S. History. It also eliminates the requirement that EOCs count for 15 percent of a student’s final course grade and the requirement for students to earn a certain cumulative score on the EOC. -Taken from article by Robert Jaklich, Superintendent for the Victoria Independent School District
