The first of two mandatory meetings for parents and/or guardians of Coahoma ISD eighth graders will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. today in the high school auditorium. The second will occur from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.
The state of Texas requires all high school students to have a four-year graduation plan on record for grades ninth through 12th. The plan must be signed by a parent and/or guardian. Creating a plan now helps ensure students complete all required courses for graduation and take all needed prerequisite courses for their career and college endorsements if the student has decided to choose a career pathway. The schedule is flexible to change during the student’s high school career.
The following items will be covered at the meeting:
* Choosing core and all required classes for graduation and the level - on level, pre-AP, and dual credit.
* Elective choices for ninth grade and beyond.
* An explanation on the various college and career endorsements which are Business and Industry, Arts and Humanities, Public Service, Multi-Disciplinary, and STEM.
A packet of information will be handed out at the meeting covering the above topics. Also, go online to www.coahomaisd.com, click onto Coahoma High School listed under schools located at the top tap bar and visit CTE counselor’s corner to find more information about career and college endorsements.
