    Seniors – Here is what you need to know about final exams!


    Final Examinations Regulations

    ¨ A student cannot retake a final exam to improve his/her grade.

    ¨ No final examination will be required in any course in which credit is not awarded. The final average in such courses will be computed from the cycle grades.

    ¨ In HISD, a final examination will be required in all state and local credit courses, including PE and electives, except second semester seniors who qualify for an exemption.


    To be exempted from final examinations in second (spring) semester senior students must have:

    • Senior (12th grade) classification;
    • 85 average or better in course;
    • S or E conduct average; and
    • No more than three (3) total absences not including ADA exemptions.

    Senior exam dates will be confirmed next week. Stay tuned!


    Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors – Excessive Absences

    If you have more than four absences in any course for the spring semester, you should be banking hours for credit appeal. Each absence (excused or unexcused) above four, requires 90-minutes of credit appeal. Students will have only 5 days between the end of the semester and the deadline for resolving NGs due to excessive absences. Anything not resolved by the end of day on June 14th will automatically require summer school attendance to get credit for the course. Summer school begins June 17 and goes through July 19, 2024.

    Clear Bag Policy

    Starting August 22, 2022, all students will be required to use a clear back on campus. Some of you may be applauding the move, while I imagine there are others who find this to be an overreach.  I would like to provide you with the reasoning.

    New Learning Management System : Canvas

    HISD is implementing a new Learning Management System (LMS) to replace the HUB this school year with Canvas. Canvas will be used across the district to help students learn and grow. With any changes, we know there can be stress about learning a new tool. We have put together some helpful tip videos to ease the transition.
