ThingLink NEISD District Challenge
Best Final Exam Ever:Pasta Lab!
Did my child receive credit for the fall semester in Food Science?
If your child failed for the semester, then no, s/he did not receive credit. However, s/he may still regain that credit if s/he passes the spring semester with a high enough average to pass for the year and displays mastery of the first semester TEKS.
To get one full credit for the year, all students must pass the 2nd semester. Please emphasize this with your child, as many seniors tend to "slide" this last semester.
