• State legislation has decreed that incoming ninth-graders work with their families and counselors to create a Personal Graduation Plan and customize it with an endorsement – a pathway that reflects their career interests and goals for additional education or training beyond high school. The personalized learning system offers five pathways: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); Business and Industry; Arts and Humanities; Public Services; and Multidisciplinary. A chart showing the endorsements available at each HISD high school can be found here.
