HSoC Completer Tutoring Schedule
What’s the difference between a completer and a graduate?
Graduate | High School Diploma
A student is a graduate when “ALL” graduation requirements are met for graduation.
High School Completer
Any student that has completed all high school courses but still hasn’t met All requirements for graduation i.e., E.O.C. | STAAR Test
Per senate bill 149/463 requirements. You’re required to attend tutoring throughout the year until you’ve taken and passed the applicable E.O.C. (End of Course Exams) | STAAR TEST.
The Tutoring Schedule is:
English I & II - Ms. Sonia Ruiz (firstname.lastname@example.org) Tuesdays at 12:15
History – Mr. Jeffry Saldivar (email@example.com) Thursdays at 9:30
Algebra - Mrs. Pamela York (firstname.lastname@example.org) Wednesday at 10:45
Science – Mrs. Bertha Franco ( email@example.com) Monday at 9:30
Please note tutoring is required for any student to take an E.O.C. in the corresponding subject area.
Failure to attend tutoring in preparation for state exams may y result in a lack of preparation and non-graduation. Students are required to attend All Tutoring sessions.
X Formerly Known as Twiiter
Effective immediately the district has blocked access to X, the site formerly known as Twitter, on district computer equipment and on any device using our network. Under federal CIPPA requirements, it is our duty to deny students access to inappropriate materials when they are using our equipment to get online. We were recently made aware that our filtering techniques that appear to be working to limit inappropriate content on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram, are not effective on X and inappropriate content could be accessed by students. Until a more comprehensive process to filter inappropriate materials on X is developed and deployed, X will not be available on our equipment. If you have an official district X account, any postings will need to be done offsite or while disconnected from our network.
Thank you for your understanding.
High School of Choice
We are an alternative high school, designed to help at-risk students achieve their goals of high school graduation and beyond. HSoC supports students through rigorous, innovative, and engaging learning experiences. Every student will be empowered to fiercely navigate their world with resilience, purpose, courage, humility, and pride.
Academic Performance and Effort
It is an expectation that all High School of Choice (HSoC) students put forth the effort to reach their maximum potential. Academic excellence is achieved by challenging yourself to improve on every assignment or task you encounter.
WISD Vision: Our vision is to be a district where innovation thrives and growth is limitless
