The Foundation High School Program with Endorsements is a flexible gradation program that allows students to explore their interests. It was established by the Texas Legislature for students entering high school in the 2014/2015 academic year or later.

The Program is comprised of four parts:

  • A 22-credit foundation plan
  • 5 Endorsement options that allow students to focus on a related series of courses
  • A higher performance category called Distinguished Level of Achievement
  • Performance Acknowledgements that recognize outstanding achievement in specific areas

All students entering the 9th grade will select an endorsement. More detailed information is available from the Texas Education Agency.

The Texas Education Agency requires minimum graduation requirements, and permits local education agencies to add to them. Graduation for NISD students are as outlined below:
