The state’s education law, the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), will allow Calhoun County ISD public school students to obtain credit in a course or grade level by passing tests approved by school district trustees. Texas law, 19 TAC Chapter 74, allows students to "test out of a course" by taking a “Credit by Examination" without prior instruction in the course(s) being tested. To earn credit for a grade or a subject the student must answer 80% of the questions correctly. In accordance with local school district policy, a student in any of Grades 6-­12 may be given credit for an academic subject in which he or she had some prior instruction, if the student scores 70% on the test. The tests are rigorous, targeting all the objectives for the courses covered.

The tests will be administered in Victoria through Region 3 ESC on June 21, 22, and 23, 2017 and again on July 12 , 13 , and 14 , 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Credit by Exam registration applications may be picked up from the campus counselor at your child’s school. There are no fees or costs to take the tests.

***THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT REGISTRATION FORMS TO THE CAMPUS COUNSELOR IS MAY 22, 2017
