1 McKinney ISD Endorsement Guide

2 INTRODUCTION When the 83rd Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5 into law, high school graduation plans changed for all students who will be freshmen during the school year and thereafter. The bill provides more flexibility for high school students to pursue either higher education or a career. House Bill 5 established a single graduation plan, the Foundation High School Program (FHSP). Students will also have the opportunity to build on the FHSP by earning Endorsements, Performance Acknowledgements, and a Distinguished Level of Achievement. Students will need to declare their preferred endorsement areas, in writing, by the beginning of their 9th grade year. Students will be able to change their endorsement at any time. An endorsement is basically an opportunity for students to select a major during their high school career. An endorsement can be earned by taking additional courses in Career and Technical Education (CTE) or by taking additional non-cte courses specified within the endorsement requirements. For the purpose of this document and entire list of courses available to students in McKinney ISD, please refer to the Academic Planning Guide on the McKinney ISD website. The endorsement areas are:! Arts & Humanities! Business & Industry! Multidisciplinary! Public Service! Science, Technology, Engineer & Math (STEM) NOTE: To earn the STEM endorsement students MUST take Algebra II, Chemistry & Physics MISD offers courses to meet endorsements in all areas (refer to the APG on MISD website for list of available courses). There are specific course requirements in the foundation curriculum based on the Endorsement selected. This guide contains an overview of graduation requirements for the FHSP; endorsement options in both Non- Career and Technology Education (Non-CTE) and Career and Technical (CTE) pathways; side-by-side core course requirements for each endorsement; and, helpful hints for selecting an endorsement. Course lists for each endorsement (both Non-CTE and CTE) with grade level and credit values.
