EOC Testing Exemptions HB 1613 provides that a student enrolled in a college preparatory math or English language arts course who satisfies the Texas Success Initiative college readiness benchmarks would be exempt from the Algebra I or English I and II end-of-course assessment instruments, as applicable, even if the student did not perform satisfactorily on a previous administration of the applicable EOC assessment. A student who fails to perform satisfactorily on the assessment instrument could retake that assessment instrument or the appropriate EOC assessment.

HB 2349


The signing of House Bill (HB) 2398 into law has made national headlines.  From the New York Times to USA Today, the significant changes in Texas’ truancy requirements have been a hot topic.  In Texas it is more than a hot topic – it is reality.  The Texas Education Agency will adopt new rules to make sure school districts are in compliance with the new law that took effect on September 1, 2015.  School districts in our region are taking proactive steps in aligning their attendance policies to reflect the new requirements.
