PARIS, TX -- A change in Texas high school graduation requirements allows school districts to become more flexible.
The State Board of Education adopted two new classes Thursday, algebraic reasoning and statistics.The classes will cover much of the same material as algebra II, which was eliminated from graduation requirements in May.
Paris High School's Principal Gary Preston says the changes could help students wanting to go straight into the workforce.
"It allows them to focus on areas of high interest to them and it gives them a chance to expand on their skill set even further," said Preston.
Preston says Paris I.S.D. has not decided whether they will adopt the two new courses.
