Graduation Plans

Graduation Plans


With the implementation of HB 5, students will graduate with a high school Foundation Graduation Program.  Students must earn 22 credits to complete their graduation plan.  In addition to these state requirements, students at Wheeler ISD will be required to complete 4 additional credits: 1 credit World History, ½ credit Speech, ½ Health, and 2 additional electives.

In addition to the foundation program students are also given the opportunity to earn an endorsement in one of the following Career & Technical Education Programs: Business & Industry and Public Services.  Each of these programs has specific clusters in which students can enroll.  Determining which cluster students will be participating in is dependent on elective credits.  In order to obtain an endorsement within a specific cluster, students are required to take the following classes.
