  • Promotion Standards

      • State requirement of overall yearly grade average of 70 or above and local requirement of a grade average of 70 or above in language arts, mathematics, and science and/or social studies.
      • Sufficient attendance – a student's total number of absences cannot exceed 10 percent of class meetings.

      Houston Independent School District (HISD) and Texas Education Agency (TEA) standards for promotion:
