Please do not schedule any appointments or planned absences on these dates.


Credit by Exam

The Credit by Exam (CBE) process allows students to receive high school credit in some subjects by taking a content area exam, which are available through Texas Tech University and the University of Texas. CBEs must be administered by a CHS staff member on campus during the specific dates noted in the testing calendar. Students must score at least an 80 percent on the exam to receive high school credit. In some cases, BISD will pay for the exam fees. Please see your counselor for the CBE Request Form, which must be approved by both the student's parent or guardian, as well as by Mr. Chappotin.


Please note that students are not allowed to take a CBE for the following subjects:

English I

Algebra I

Biology

English II

U.S. History
