Transition from Middle School to High School

During the month of February, San Angelo ISD 8th grade students begin planning their transitions from middle school to high school and develop individual graduation plans. 

8th grade students learn about the important parts of planning for high school including graduation requirements and the different programs of study offered through Career and Technical Education (CTE), fine arts, athletics and more. Students work with their middle school counselor and Career Pathways or Leadworthy teacher to complete the transition process. 

Each student’s plan will be accessible for students and parents to review together using an online platform, Xello. Information on how to login in to Xello will be communicated by your student’s campus. 

We want to make each student’s transition as smooth as possible and enable them to identify a pathway to their individual hopes and dreams.

Educational Planning Guide

The Educational Planning Guide guide has all of the information that our parents and students will need to help them prepare for high school.  Graduation plans and requirements are explained in detail so that families have a good idea of what will be expected of students as they move through high school. Each grade (9-12) is explained in detail with the available courses for students as well as important steps that students should take for their future planning during each grade.  Descriptions of all courses available for high school students are also included in this planning guide.
