The state’s education law, the Texas Administrative Code (TAC), will allow Woodsboro 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 courses being tested. To earn credit for a grade or a subject the student must answer 90 percent 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 percent on the test. The tests are rigorous, targeting all the objectives for the courses covered.

The tests will be administered in Victoria through Region III Education Service Center on June 23, 24 and 25, and again on July 6, 7 and 8 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on each date.

Registration applications may be picked up in the counselor’s office during the months of April and May. Deadline for registration is May 15.

There are no fees or costs to take the tests. If a student signs up to take a test and is absent for any reason, the student must reimburse the district for test costs.
