Credit By Exam

Students in grades K-5 will have four opportunities during the school year to use “credit-by-exam” to accelerate to another grade level. Students will only have one opportunity to test for each grade level considered.

To apply to take the test to skip kindergarten, a student must be 5 by September 1, and registered in a CFISD school. To apply to take the test to skip grade 1, a student must be 6 by September 1, and enrolled in a CFISD school.

Students who earn scores of 80% or better on each component of the credit-by-exam will qualify to advance one grade. Only one grade level may be “skipped” each year. No retests will be given.

If you are interested in getting more information about credit-by-exam, please contact the school counselor.

ZPass Plus

Safety is the top priority within our commitment to providing safe and efficient transportation to over

75,000 students every day. A crucial part of this service is knowing when and where each child gets on and off the school bus. ZPass allows parents to receive notifications when their child enters and exits the school bus.

How ZPass Works

  1. Students place their ZPass Multipurpose Card in front of the card reader as they enter and exit the school bus.

  2. The card reader emits an audible beep confirming the card was read.

  3. The time, date and location of where the student gets on and off the bus are immediately recorded to a secure database, accessible only by transportation and school officials.

  4. Parents can sign up for instant notifications, via push or cell phone text messaging and/or email.

  5. Parents can sign up for notifications by going to https://www.zpassplus.com/. ZPass + app is available at Google Play and the App Store.

  6. Badge replacement fees: $3.00 for bus badge and $1.00 for lanyard.
