Summer US History at ACC and EOC Testing Information

Students taking and passing the ACC US History 1302 course will receive both high school and college credit.  Since ACC US History 1302 students will receive high school credit, they must also take and pass the US History EOC as part of their high school graduation requirement.  We acknowledge that the ACC US History 1302 first summer term course will not finish until July 5th; however, the TEA window is June 25 through the 28th. After the 28th, students will not be allowed to test again until the first week of December.

To minimize the amount of conflicts with other exams, Westwood and McNeil students will be testing at Westwood on Tuesday, June 26th.  In order to accommodate the amount of students taking the ACC US History 1302 course, we are asking students to sign up for a time slot to take the EOC.  Please click on the link below and register for a time slot. Registration will close at the end of the day June 12th.


If you have any questions, please email Raymond Snyder, Test Coordinator, at raymond_snyder@roundrockisd.org

Girls State Interest Form Due by April 9th at 9am

http://girls-state.org/?p=2222 is the Girls State Website if you want to learn more about the program.

What is Girls State?
Texas Bluebonnet Girls State is a mythical 51st state where, for one week, participants, or “citizens”, organize their own city, county, and state governments. They elect their own officials, learn the duties of the various city, county and state offices. Citizens introduce and debate their own bills in a mock legislature. The program concludes with a visit to the State Capitol building in Austin where the citizens are given an opportunity to sight-see and meet state officials.

This is open to only junior girls. Juniors were emailed the form they need to fill out. The form includes the dates that they would need to be available for them to participate. Westwood can only chose 4 students to send to interviews, so please fill the form out ASAP!

ADA Parent Night

When and Where: April 3rd @ 6pm in the Library Great Room

What: ADA Parent Night (students are encouraged to attend as well)

Students, if you receive services through Special Education or Section 504, you might be eligible to receive some services at college through the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. 

This night will provide you and your family general knowledge on how to navigate the college system. A presenter from ACC will be here to discuss multiple topics including the laws behind the services, differences between high school and college application process, the importance of self advocacy, the parents role, instructional difference and free resources on campuses.

Even though the presenter is from ACC, most of the information is pretty similar for all colleges. This night would be a great way to get an introduction into the college world of ADA....a great starting point for the exciting journey ahead!

We look forward to see you and contact Mrs Browning if you have any questions.
