End of Course Testing
THIS IS THE WEEK!
The End of Course Test (EOCT, EOC, or EOC Test) is an academic assessment conducted in many states by the State Board of Education. ... Since the EOCT is an official, state-administered test, any violation or interference can result in the invalidation of scores of all students taking the exam on that subject.
Required- End of Course Exams and Tutoring
The English I E.O.C. (End of Course) Exam is on December 7.

Financial Aid Requirement Form
In accordance with Texas Education Code (TEC), §28.0256, beginning with students enrolled in 12th grade during the 2021-2022 school year, each student must do one of the following in order to graduate:
Complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA);
Complete and submit a Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA); or
Submit a signed opt-out form.
Laws and Rules
In 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature established the new requirement for Texas students to complete a financial aid application (or formally opt-out) in order to graduate. The State Board of Education (SBOE) adopted rules related to the new requirement in January 2021.
A student may opt-out of the financial aid application graduation requirement if:
a parent or guardian submits a signed form;
the student is 18 years of age or older and submits a signed form; or
a school counselor authorizes the student to decline to complete and submit the application for a good cause.
AT minimum all are required to complete a FASFA I.D
