EOC 15% update

“Earlier today, Governor Rick Perry sent a letter to Education Commissioner Michael Williams asking him to defer until the 2013-14 school year the requirement that an end-of-course assessment count as 15% of a student’s final course grade. The governor also applauded Sen. Dan Patrick for filing legislation, SB 135 http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/BillLookup/History.aspx?LegSess=83R&Bill=SB135, to give school districts permanent flexibility making the 15% grade provision a local option for school districts.
