Tutoring Has Started!

What's the difference between a completer and a Graduate?

What it means:

High School Diploma

A student has met ALL the requirements for graduation.

High School Completer

A student has completed high school courses but didn’t meet ALL the requirements for graduation.

Per Senate Bill 149/463 Requirements. You’re required to attend tutoring throughout the year until you test and passed the E.O.C. (End of Course Exams).

The tutoring Schedule is:

English I & II - Mrs. Sonia Ruiz- Hardister (sruiz@WISD.org) Tuesday at 12:15

History – Mr. Jeffery Saldivar - ( jsaldivar@wisd.org ) Thursday's at 9:30

Algebra - Mr. James Gilbert - (jgilbert@wisd.org) Wednesday at 10:45

Science - Mrs. Bertha Franco - (bfranco@wisd.org) Monday at 10:25

Please note tutoring is required, for any student needing to take an E.O.C. in the corresponding subject area.

Failure to attend tutoring in preparation for state exams may result in a lack of preparation and non-graduation. Students are required to attend all tutoring sessions (s).
