the 2017–2018 school year, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS)
assessments will no longer be administered. Students for whom TAKS is a
graduation requirement, including former TAAS and TEAMS examinees, may pursue
the following options to receive a Texas high school diploma.
- Request a district decision. A former student should contact
the school district where he or she was last enrolled to request a
district decision regarding whether he or she qualifies to graduate and
receive a high school diploma. More information about this option can be
found in Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §74.1027.
If you have questions about TAC §74.1027, please contact the
Curriculum Standards and Student Support Division at (512) 463-9581 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Achieve satisfactory performance
on an alternate assessment. The alternate assessments allowed for TAKS are
SAT, ACT, TSI, and STAAR. Former TAKS, TAAS, and TEAMS examinees should
take only the appropriate part of the alternate assessment he or she needs
to fulfill testing graduation requirements. More information about this
option can be found in TAC §101.4003.
If you have questions about TAC §101.4003, please contact
