Edison Advisement Conference Schedule



Dear Parent/Guardian:


In 2013 our Texas Legislature passed House Bill 5 (HB 5) changing the graduation requirements for students entering the ninth grade in 2014 - 2015.  Beginning in the 2014 - 2015 school year, school districts must ensure that each student, on entering ninth grade, indicates in writing an endorsement that the student intends to earn.  As per state mandate, high school counselors are to review the Personal Graduation Plan and endorsement together with the parent and each student entering 9th grade.  The Personal Graduation Plan must be signed by the student and parent.  Below is the Advisement Conference Schedule of date and time of your scheduled conference during the week of August 11 - 14.  It is imperative that you and your child attend at the designated time indicated below based on your child's last name.
