Were you enrolled as a freshman at Crosby High School before 2011-2012 and did not graduate because you didn't pass TAKS or TAAS?
New Administrative Code rules effective May 3, 2018, implement SB 463 and establish a procedure to allow the school district in which an eligible student is enrolled or was last enrolled to determine whether the student qualifies to graduate and receive a high school diploma.

The new rules apply with the 2017-2018 school year and expire on September 1, 2019.
