TISD Offers Acceleration Exams
Taylor ISD is offering opportunities for secondary students to earn credit in academic subjects. Exams will be offered for most TEKS-based courses in grades 6-12. The purpose of examination for acceleration is to allow a student to accelerate and earn credit for a particular course or grade level without formal instruction in that course or grade level. The student must score a minimum of 80% on the required tests for the course or grade level the student wants to accelerate.
Any TISD student is eligible to participate in testing without charge at the time of the regularly scheduled administration.
The spring/summer testing dates are:
June 2-3, 2020, Registration period - April 1- May 1, 2020
August 4-5, 2020, Registration period, June 1- 25, 2020.
Students interested in participating in the examination for acceleration program should pick up a registration form from the counselor’s office at their school. Registration forms for the June date must be returned to the counselor’s office by the end of the regular school day on May 1st, 2020.
The registration forms for the August testing can be returned to the campus office or to the TISD Central Office.
Questions concerning the examination for acceleration program may be directed to the school counselor or to Debbie Matthys, TISD Assessment Coordinator, at (512) 352-6361.
