High School Planning and Information

High School Planning is key in assuring our students and parents have the most up-to-date information regarding state policy and how that aligns with our plan at Compass to get our students ready for their future. 
Texas Education Code requires school districts to create a Personal Graduation Plan (PGP) with our students prior to entering the 9th grade. I will be helping our students in developing these through the educational planning process during the Spring of their 8th grade school year. This information will also be gone over in depth during our high school parent meetings. PGP's are working documents that we will review each year to make sure our students on on track to graduate.
Texas Graduation Requirements:

In accordance with Texas Education Code (TEC), §28.0256, beginning with students enrolled in 12th grade during the 2021-2022 school year, each student must do one of the following in order to graduate:  

  • Complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA);
  • Complete and submit a Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA); or
