Reporting on Annual Individual Graduation Committees

Per Texas Education Code §28.0259(c), the agency is required to make data on individual graduation committees (IGCs) available on the agency’s website. In 2015, the 84th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 149, which revised the state's assessment graduation requirements for students enrolled in Grades 11 or 12 during the 2014-15 school year. The IGC requirements were extended by the Texas Legislature in 2017 and again in 2019 and are in effect through the 2022-23 school year. Under the requirements, a student who failed the end-of-course (EOC) assessment for no more than two of five required courses may receive a Texas high school diploma if the student was determined to be qualified to graduate by an IGC. The agency is providing information on students who were assigned an IGC, IGC graduates, and all graduates. Annual IGC data are available for the following years. Please select one:
