Texas lawmakers vote to extend life of high school graduation appeals process

In 2015, the Texas legislature created an alternative path for students to graduate. With the passage of Senate Bill 149 by state Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, students who failed to satisfy the traditional state graduation requirements could appeal for a different way forward. These students could appeal to individual graduation committees to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. These committees are comprised of parents, teachers and administrators. This solution was temporary, however. The initial legislation only extended the lives of these committees to Sept. 1 of this year.
