HB5, Graduation Planning & State Testing Requirements

House Bill 5 Overview

The 83th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5 (HB5) earlier this month. While HB5 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. HB5 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.

School principals, counselors and teachers are receiving information and trainings to actively support students and ensure their success as we adjust to these changes. As more information is available we will share it with our students, parents and educators.
