GRADE LEVEL ADVANCEMENT
The listing below is a summary of the minimum number of credits for grade level classification.
ACADEMIC & CAREER-BASED EDUCATION
Eanes Independent School District offers academic as well as career and technical education programs. Admission to these programs is based on state guidelines, Texas Education Agency requirements, grade level course prerequisites, and course requests.
It is the policy of Eanes ISD not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex or handicap in its academic and vocational programs, services, or activities as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
Students determined eligible for specialized instructional services by an Admission, Review and Dismissal (ARD) Committee may be served through classes identified in the Course Description Booklet as “Special Education”. Students taking a special education course, or general education course with modified curriculum, will graduate under the Foundation Plan rather than the Foundation Program + Multidisciplinary Endorsement with the Distinguished Level of Achievement, when the credit(s) is/are applied toward a course required for graduation. For further information, please contact the Special Education Department or your student’s counselor.
