Planning Suggestions
The following information is presented to assist students in planning their high
school work. This course guide represents a revision of previous bulletins and supersedes them.
Your program should include courses that
will meet the graduation requirements of the
Texas Education Agency, prepare you for
your post-secondary goals, and provide
avenues for development of new interests.
Your counselor can help you plan by analyzing your academic record and by discussing with you your interests after graduation.
Your College and Career Information Center
also has the most up-to-date information
available about various training programs,
schools, colleges, universities, and employYour high school journey is the key to
ment possibilities.
Think about the following questions as you
begin to select your courses:

What are my goals?

What are my strengths, abilities and needs?

How do my course selections reflect my strengths, abilities and needs?

What are the requirements for the type of post-secondary training I am considering?

Are the courses I am selecting appropriate for the type of future I am planning?
High school level courses (examples: Algebra I and Languages other than English) taken
at the seventh and eighth grade levels will be counted in meeting the graduation requirements.
A course may be counted only one time toward graduation requirements. Example: Marching Band in the fall semester may be counted as a Physical Education requirement or as a fine arts credit or as an elective.
All students must carry a full-day schedule of classes according to grade classification and
campus policy. Enrollment in a Career and Technical Work-Based Learning program will be
counted as part of a full-day schedule.
PLEASE NOTE: A student may not add a course after the course has been in
session past the tenth day of the semester.

Cumulative Averages & Class Rank
All course semester grades earned
that count toward state graduation credit
shall be included in computing the cumulative average. Lost credit grades (failed
courses), duplicated course grades, and
credit by exam grades must be included;
transfer grades, correspondence course
grades, and dual credit course grades will
also be used when computing the cumulative average. Students will be allowed
to earn up to four credits for athletics. All
four credits will be included in the cumulative average. The grades earned in
multiple period courses will be counted
only one time.
“...to graduate students prepared for
success beyond high
“What lies
before us and
what lies
beyond us
is tiny compared
to what lies
within us.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes
If a student repeats a course previously taken and passed, the repeated course
grade shall be included in the computation of the student’s final average, along
with the original course grade. The
course must be repeated within one year
of the original course and shall count only
as local/noncredit for graduation requirement purposes.
The cumulative average shall be
computed by dividing the student’s total
accumulated grades by the total number
of courses completed. Students who
earn passing grades in Advance Placement (AP), Pre-AP, IB (International
Baccalaureate) or Pre-IB classes will
have an additional five points added to
their grade in these courses for purposes
of computing the cumulative averages
and class rank. The additional five points
also shall be added to passing grades in
high school Pre-AP courses taken at the
middle school level only if the course is
offered at all middle schools that feed into
that high school. Cumulative averages for
the purpose of determining academic
honor-graduates and class rank will be
rounded to four decimal places. Honor
graduates must have a final cumulative
average of 90 or above. Grade point
averages are computed for honor graduates at the end of the 5th six weeks. Final
grade point averages are computed at
the end of the 6th six weeks.
Transfer students shall be eligible to
be honor graduates on the basis of their
high school records as determined by this
policy. Five additional points shall be
assigned to transfer grades only when
the courses are clearly designated as
advanced placement or international
baccalaureate courses on the copy of the
official school transcript and only if that
course is offered at the receiving high

Attendance for Credit
Each campus shall establish an attendance committee or as many committees as necessary for efficient implementation of Education Code 25.092.
The Superintendent or designee shall make the specific appointments in accordance with legal requirements.
A student and the student's parent or guardian shall be given written notice prior to and at such time when a student's attendance in
any class drops below 90 percent of the days the class is offered. When a student's attendance drops below 90 percent of the days
the class is offered, the student, parent, or representative may request award of credit by submitting a written petition to the appropriate attendance committee. The attendance committee shall review the student's entire attendance record and the reasons for
absences, and shall determine whether to award credit.
Alternative Credit Sources
Option: I: SUMMER SCHOOL: Summer classes will be offered by each high school campus. Students will be
permitted to enroll in a maximum of three semester classes for regaining credit or two semester classes for advancement in summer school. A fee per semester course is required.
Option II: ON-LINE: The Amarillo On-line School in conjunction with the TX Virtual School Network offers high school students
a way to take a course for credit outside the normal school day. Students may enroll in certain classes with approval from the
home campus counselor. For more information about available courses and other information pertaining to online courses, contact your school counselor.
Option III: CREDIT BY EXAMINATION: Students may use credit by examination to demonstrate mastery to earn credit in any
academic course at the secondary level, with the prior approval of the principal.
No fee shall be charged for an examination provided by the District. If a parent or student requests an alternative examination,
the District may administer a test purchased by the parent or student from a State Board-approved university. A registration process for these examinations will be established and communicated at the individual campus level.
For credit by examination with or without prior instruction, students must register for individual examinations at their home school
according to district deadlines. There are three scheduled testing dates per year in November, April, and June. Additional information on credit by examination is available at the counselors' office and local policy EEJA and EEJB.
Option IV: CORRESPONDENCE: Credits from correspondence courses may be accepted as part of the high school graduation requirements, provided the courses are from institutions that have been approved by the counselor and principal prior to taking
the course. The two approved institutions for AISD are Texas Tech University and The University of Texas at Austin. These
courses are used only for emergency purposes or enrichment. Information is available in counselors' offices.
Resident students may earn a maximum of three of the total credits required by the state through correspondence courses.
Students temporarily living abroad and out-of-school youths and adults shall earn a minimum of 12 state-required credits in residence.

Assessments
of
Academic
Readiness
(STAAR)
A New Assessment Model beginning with incoming 2011-2012 Freshman
Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year incoming Freshman will be subject to the STAAR testing system. The majority of the new STAAR assessments will test content students studied that year, as opposed to testing content studied over multiple years. There are twelve end-of-course assessments in the four foundation content areas—English, mathematics, science and social studies. These assessments will replace the current high school
TAKS tests.
A Freshman student enrolled in English I, Algebra I, Biology, and World Geography will take STAAR exams in each of these subject areas. As the
student enters his/her sophomore year and beyond, STAAR exams will be administered at the end of the year in the appropriate subject areas. The
cumulative score must meet satisfactory performance set forth by TEA.
For additional information, contact your student’s school counselor or visit http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/staar/

Important Information
Schedule Change Procedures: Classes are
arranged and personnel are hired based on selections made by students. For this reason, only
changes that are absolutely necessary may be
made after May 31. Schedule change requests
may be initiated by the student ONLY during the
first 5 days of each semester. A student may not
add a course after the course has been in session
past the 10th day of the semester. Students may
not drop a class after the 4th week of a six weeks
and may not become eligible for extracurricular
activities by dropping a course at the end of a six
weeks period in which he/she had a grade below
70.
Opportunities for College-Bound Texas Students: Two opportunities are available for collegebound Texas students: 1) Texas students graduating in the top 10% of their graduating class are
eligible for automatic admission to any public
college/university in Texas if they have graduated
on the Recommended or Distinguished Achievement Plan; and 2) the Texas Grant Program may
have money available for students who show
financial need. Counselors and college admissions
officers have more information. Senate Bill 175
authorizes The University of Texas at Austin,
beginning with admissions for the 2011-2012
academic year and ending with the 2015-2016
academic year, to limit automatic admissions under
this law to fill not more than 75 percent of its
enrollment capacity for first-time resident undergraduate students.
Dual Credit: Dual credit refers to the practice of
awarding credit at two educational institutions for a
course completed at one institution. AISD and
Amarillo College have entered into an agreement
to award dual credit for specific courses taken by
juniors and seniors. At this time, AC does not
charge tuition for courses taught on the high school
campus (an activity fee is charged). The courses
available vary by high school campus. Students
interested in dual credit should check with their
coordinator for courses offered at their campus and
the AC campus.
Enrollment for dual credit courses is scheduled
and conducted by AC personnel; certain courses
may require students to take placement tests at the
AC campus. In accordance with the Texas Success Initiative (TSI), any student taking a college
course (including dual credit courses) must meet
*TSI requirements. Certain scores on the TAKS,
SAT, ACT, THEA, or Accuplacer will meet these
requirements. High School counselors have more
information on the TSI requirements.
*The TSI requires students to be assessed in
reading, writing and math skills prior to enrolling in college, and to be advised based on the
results of that assessment. However, each
institution determines what to do with students
who don't pass one or more parts of the test.
Institutions have the flexibility to determine the
best path for individual students to take in
order to become college ready and to demonstrate that they are indeed ready for collegelevel courses.
Students must remember that by taking a dual
credit course, they are enrolling at AC: As a result,
the grade earned in the course is entered on their
college transcript. An “Incomplete” or failing grade
in a dual credit course may affect a student’s ability
to receive federal financial aid for college. Contact
the college you are considering for specific policies
in this area.
Articulated Credit: Some Career & Technical
Education courses qualify for articulated credit with
Amarillo College. If successfully completed, this
credit can be claimed upon enrollment at AC and
completion of at least six college hours. For additional information, see your counselor or contact
the CTE Director within AISD.
Advanced Placement Courses: Advanced
placement courses are offered on every AISD high
school campus, although course offerings at each
campus will vary. The Advanced Placement
Program is a cooperative endeavor between U.S.
secondary schools and colleges and universities.
It exposes high school students to college-level
material through involvement in an AP course, and
it gives them the opportunity to show that they
have mastered it by taking an AP Exam in the
spring. Colleges and universities can then grant
credit, placement, or both to students scoring at a
certain level. Those levels for which credit is
awarded and the terms for doing so vary from
college to college. Students should check with the
post-secondary institution they wish to attend for its
policy on how (or if) credit is awarded for AP Exam
scores.
Pre-AP courses are offered in various courses
on all high school campuses. These courses are
designed to prepare students to meet the demands
and expectations of the AP classes.
High School Credit Recovery: A high school
student who fails the first semester of any core
course with a grade no lower than 60, but who
passes the second semester of the course, may
receive credit if the average of the two semesters
results in a grade of 70 or above. Otherwise, to
receive credit in a core course, the student must
utilize credit recovery to obtain a passing grade for
any semester failed. Credit recovery options
include retaking the class, taking a correspondence
course, or receiving credit by examination with
prior instruction.
Transfer : AISD has a transfer policy in place for
students wishing to enroll in another high school
within the district. For information on transfer
procedures, students and parents should contact
the principal of the school they wish to attend.
Counseling Services: Counselors meet with
students individually every year to discuss academic and career plans including the following
items:
 College
access
and Career Information Center
 Graduation requirements (testing and credits)
 Standardized testing including STAAR and
pre-college testing

Extracurricular Activity Participation Requirements (State Mandated): In order to participate
in extracurricular activities, students must meet the
side-by-side guidelines. (for more information visit:

Programs For The Gifted And Talented: Amarillo Independent School District’s G/T program is
implemented at the high school level through PreAP and AP (Advanced Placement) courses.
Identified G/T students are cluster-grouped in
these courses taught by teachers who have met
state and local training requirements for teachers
of gifted students.
Superintendent’s Scholars: Superintendent’s
Scholars is a program that is unique to the Amarillo
Independent School District. It was established to
recognize academic excellence in high school
students. Students who qualify for this honor are
recognized through school presentations, luncheons, publicity in local newspaper and district
publications, certificates, plaques and other incentives.

Information on Texas Minimum Graduation Plan
Parent/Guardian Notification of Benefits of the
Recommended High School Program for Graduation
The 81st Texas Legislature, 2009, passed House Bill (HB) 3,
amending the Texas Education Code (TEC), §28.025, to require
school districts to provide written notice to parents/guardians explaining the benefits of the Recommended High School Program
(RSHP) for graduation before a student is permitted to take courses
under the Minimum High School Program (MHSP). The purpose of
this correspondence is to ensure that parents/guardians are informed about the programs and opportunities afforded to students
graduating under the RHSP.
Benefits of graduating under the Recommended High School Program include:
• College readiness. Many colleges and universities minimally
require the RHSP for admission. In addition, students ranked in the
top 10 percent of their graduating class from an accredited Texas
public high school are eligible for automatic admission to most
Texas public universities if they have completed the RHSP or the
Distinguished Achievement Program (DAP).
• Recognition. The Recommended High School Program seal will
be affixed to the Academic Achievement Record (AAR), or transcript, of students graduating under the RHSP.
• Test results. Research suggests that students who take additional English, math, social studies, and science courses make higher
scores on the SAT® or ACT® college entrance exams. The RHSP
requires four credits in each of these core courses.
In order to be considered for graduation on the
Minimum Graduation Plan, a student must meet at
least one of the following criteria:

FOR ADVANCED LEARNING
The Amarillo Area Center for Advanced Learning (AACAL) offers a challenging and competitive college preparatory
program to academically talented, technically-oriented students throughout the Panhandle area of Texas. All specialty programs at AACAL incorporate a strong math-science focus; students who are selected to attend AACAL should
plan to take four years of math and science at AACAL. Each of the specialty programs at AACAL has been established under the guidance of many college, university and business partners. Courses in each specialty program
follow a coherent sequence of study for each grade level. First and second year courses are focused on exploration
and investigation in the career fields related to each specialty program. To be eligible for these courses, students
must have passed his or her core subject courses in the fall semester with skill levels demonstrating readiness for
combined academic and technical instruction. It is usually not appropriate to place a student who is not ready for this
type of instruction in AACAL classes when his or her significant need is to complete basic skills instruction at their
home campus.
Students who decide to continue their four year coherent sequence of courses beyond the sophomore year will apply
for admission in the spring semester to the Specialty Program of their choice. Admission to the junior and senior level
Specialty Programs is on a competitive basis. Admission to all Junior/Senior level Specialty Programs at AACAL are
noted in the course guide with “Application required.”

This program offers a course of
study that follows the Graphic
Design industry and keeps pace
with current trends in design.
Graphic designers use specialized computer software packages to help them create
layouts and design elements. AACAL provides a variety of
hands-on learning situations. Students will experience a
wide range of work simulations from development of overall
layout and production design followed by job mentoring and
job internships. Each level provides the students with a
comprehensive series that allows them to develop skills,
expertise and competence in preparation for industry-level
certification exams (ex. Adobe Certified Associate).

International Baccalaureate Programme
The International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), a nonprofit educational foundation based in Switzerland, offers the Diploma Program for students in the final two years of secondary school. The curriculum is internationally based and is designed to provide a broad liberal arts experience for
the college-bound student. Each student will become proficient in language and mathematical studies, the two most important tools of communication and analysis, and participate in an in-depth exploration of the study
of human behavior and the process of educational inquiry. The resulting
educational experience will provide the student with a well-rounded, high
academic course of study emphasizing the development of the total individual. Successful completion of the course work and examinations at the
junior/senior level may earn students credit and/or advanced placement at
colleges and universities around the world. For a complete listing of university recognition policies, go to http://www.ibo.org.
