STUDENTS GET CHANCES DURING SUMMER TO “TEST OUT OF CLASSES”
The state’s education law, the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), will allow students to obtain credit in a course or grade level by passing tests approved by school district trustees. Texas law, 19 TAC Chapter 74, allows students to "test out of a course" by taking a “Credit by Examination" without prior instruction in the course(s) being tested. To earn credit for a grade or a subject the student must answer 80% of the questions correctly. In accordance with local school district policy, a student in any of Grades 6-12 may be given credit for an academic subject in which he or she had some prior instruction, if the student scores 70% on the test. The tests are rigorous, targeting all the objectives for the courses covered.
The tests will be administered in Victoria through Region III Education Service Center on June 20, 21, and 22, 2018 and again on July 11, 12, and 13, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on each date. Registration applications may be picked up in Cuero ISD school district and campus counselor offices in May and are due completed to the campus counselor office by May 21, 2018. There are no fees or costs to take the tests.
For more information call your campus counselor or Dr. Pam Longbotham at (361) 275-1922.
