Important Update Message for Dual Credit

April 24, 2020
Students and parents,
 
TISD has approved for the use of PSAT scores for students to be eligible to take dual credit courses for the 2020-2021 school year ONLY. (Further use of PSAT scores for future years will be reviewed and determined by the district during the Fall) Eligibility is not the same as qualifying for courses. Click here to learn more about eligibility. Eligible students have been sent emails letting them know if they are eligible for their courses, and students who do not meet eligibility have also been sent emails.  PSAT cannot be used for students taking calculus or chemistry, and those students have been sent emails. We will know more on May 1st about remote testing from Lone Star College, and this will be sent out via email as well. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding. Students - If you have not yet taken your TSI, please make sure you're using this time to prepare.  Our THS Library has a great resource, PrepStep, which you can find at www.tinyurl.com/thstestcenter
 
Once we begin remote testing, a new qualifying deadline will be given for 2020-2021 courses.
 
For qualified/eligible students, registration paperwork for Fall 2020 courses will begin to be sent out. Please check your emails.
 
Stay safe and healthy everyone!  Check back for more information, as this page will be updated frequently.
 
Keep calm, we got this
