Right now a bill known as the HB5 or the “House Bill 5” is a piece of legislation that is on the verge of being passed unless the state Governor vetoes it by June 16. This piece of legislation would alter the amount of credits a student needs for core classes in order to be able to graduate. The bill is geared towards students who may not go into a higher level of education such as college, or to better help students pursue their desired career paths by giving them specific educational classes that fit their desired occupations.
However not all students will be taking a break from school, a handful of seniors have decided to start college in the summer by attending summer classes leaving little to no time between graduation and college.
Although NEISD does not allow students to go off campus for lunch due to liability issues, other San Antonio school districts such as NISD do. NISD’s off campus lunch policies have sparked rising controversy with the recent Brandeis high school student accident incident. However, NISD has not changed its off campus lunch policy despite the student car accident taking place during lunch time.
As the end of the school year quickly approaches leaving only nine weeks left, scholarship opportunities become more scarce and for some deadlines are fast approaching.
