While HB 5 will impact a number of areas in the Texas Education Code, the new law will significantly change the requirements for high school graduation, graduation planning and state testing requirements at all levels. HB 5 is designed to instill more flexibility in public education by enabling students to either pursue a traditional path into colleges and universities or move directly into the workforce to help fill what business leaders say is a critical skills shortage.
This web page has been developed to help students and their parents navigate the changes under HB5 and plan for high school graduation. If you have a specific questions, regarding your personal graduation plan, please contact your campus administration for guidance.
