Programs of Study & Graduation Plans

Texas Education Code §28.02121 requires each student to develop and connect to a personal graduation plan that leads to an endorsement. This process requires a district to consider the importance in using programs of study and the personal graduation plan, collaboratively, to satisfy current and prior legislation. The program of study is an advisement tool for students, parents and counselors. It is a map for college and career readiness aligned to an occupational objective. A program of study is considered the intensive education plan, as required. The personal graduation plan is an opportunity for students, parents, and counselors to work collaboratively in order to help each student meet their individual goals. In addition, the student’s completion of graduation requirements is tracked by a working document called the credit evaluation. It is a tool that is used to document grades, assessments, acceleration, and other requirements in law.

The use of the program of study and personal graduation plan is necessary to ensure desired outcomes for college and career readiness. Below is a step-by-step process in which students will need to take in order to develop and progress through their personal graduation plan:
