    9. What if I need to request a Transcript?
      Request transcripts and all other records by emailing the campus registrar, Catrina Goffney (CHHS) Catrina.Goffney@chisd.net or Jennifer Cantu (Collegiate HS) jennifer.cantu@chisd.net 
    10. Now that EOC assessments are cancelled what happens next?
      For students who are still working to meet assessment graduation requirements as seniors in the 2019– 2020 school year, required performance on academic assessments to graduate under TEC, §28.025(c) and §39.025(a) are being waived for spring 2020. Effectively, this means that current seniors may graduate through the Individual Graduation Committee process regardless of the number of EOC assessments they still need to pass. However, the scholar must have received credit for the class. Your campus will contact you with information in reference to the Individual Graduation Committee meetings.
