The FHSP with Endorsements
With few exceptions, ALL students will be required to earn
an endorsement in one of the following areas:
1. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)
2. Business and Industry
3. Public Services
4. Arts and Humanities
5. Multidisciplinary Studies
The pathways that students in Humble ISD have already chosen in
Bridges fit under these endorsements.
We will not know the specific requirements for each endorsement
until some time in the 2013-2014 school year.
The FHSP with Endorsement
Each endorsement requires 26 credits
total, including:
O 4th math
O 4th science
O 2 additional electives
Distinguished Level of
Achievement
To earn the distinguished level of achievement, students
must complete:
•The FHSP
•An endorsement
•Algebra II
Students completing the distinguished level are eligible
for college admission under the Top 10% automatic
admissions provision.
What happened to the old
graduation plans?
Students currently in 8th, 9th, and 10th grade
may graduate on the graduation plans now
in place (MHSP, RHSP, DAP) or may choose
the FHSP.
The current plans will be phased out over
time.
So what possible changes might students make to
their 2013-2014 courses should they choose the
new FHSP graduation plan?
Current juniors in Cohort 2014 will
not be allowed to graduate under
the FHSP UNLESS they are unable
to meet the requirements of the
current graduation plans. Current
juniors who think this provision
may work for them should make an
appointment with a counselor to
discuss this option.

When Considering FHSP . . .
O Think about the student’s chosen pathway
O Which science & math courses will be needed?
O Think about which college/university the student
plans to attend
O Which science & math courses are required for
admission and/or chosen major?
O Realize we don’t know all the details of the FHSP
O Will the student have an opportunity to complete
all the requirements of the FHSP with
endorsement?
Student Procedure for Course Changes
1. Review next year’s requested courses on the attached verification
sheet.
2. Go to www.bridges.com
Portfolio Name = humble + your student ID (ex: humble123456)
Password = your student ID (ex: 123456)
Click Choices Planner
Click the green “your portfolio” tab near the top, then click “YOUR
PLANS”
Scroll down to the purple “Your School Course Plan”
3. If you wish to remain on your current graduation plan, make
certain that next year’s planned courses in Bridges match those on
your attached course verification sheet. If they don’t match, edit the
Bridges planned courses.
Student Procedure for Course Changes
4. If you wish to graduate on the new Foundation High School Plan
(FHSP), make the appropriate potential changes in Bridges. Write the
same changes on your course verification sheet, have a parent sign
it, and return that sheet to your counselor by Friday, May 31. We will
make these changes once HB 5 becomes a law.
Remember: The FHSP may have other course requirements that are not currently
in your graduation plan. You will be informed of those requirements as soon as we
know them. Please watch for new videos on our district website,
www.humbleisd.net.
*Students receiving services through Special Education may need
to have course changes approved by an ARD Committee.
Course Plans in Bridges will be locked again June 3rd. If you wish to
make changes after that date, contact your campus to speak with a
counselor.
