Graduation Requirements

McKinney North High School Graduation

McKinney North High School Graduation

In 2014, the State of Texas released a new graduation plan called the Foundation Plus Endorsement Plan (FHSP). Students have the opportunity to build on the FHSP by earning Endorsements, Performance Acknowledgements, and a Distinguished Level of Achievement. Students will need to declare their preferred endorsement areas, in writing, by the beginning of their 9th grade year. Students will be able to change their endorsement at any time. An endorsement is basically an opportunity for students to select a “major” during their high school career. An endorsement can be earned by taking additional courses in Career and Technical Education (CTE) or by taking additional non-CTE courses specified within the endorsement requirements.

Parents and students can find the latest information about these graduation requirements in the documents listed below.

Families should also refer to the information contained in the Academic Planning Guides found in this section of the website.
