Individual Graduation Committees

Individual Graduation Committees

Texas Education Code §28.0258 revises the state’s assessment graduation requirements for students enrolled in the 11th or 12th grade during the 2014-2015 through 2022-2023 school years. A student who has failed the EOC assessment graduation requirements for no more than two courses may receive a Texas high school diploma if the student has qualified to graduate by means of an individual graduation committee (IGC) determination.

Alternative Graduation Requirements for Students Who Entered High School Before 2011-2012 School Year

Texas Education Code §28.02541 allows districts to award diplomas to certain students who entered high school before the 2011-2012 school year and did not receive a diploma after failing to meet assessment requirements. Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §74.1027 details the alternative graduation requirements that an individual can meet to qualify for a diploma.
