Forney ISD Credit by Examination
Forney Independent School District has grade acceleration testing during district acceleration windows, as provided by 19 TAC 74.24 and Texas Education Code 28.032. The purpose of credit by exam is to allow a student to accelerate in grades K-8 or earn course credit without prior instruction in grades 6-12 free of charge. FISD utilizes Texas Tech University and Univerity of Texas K-12 for tests. Students may also test to recover credit for a particular course or grade with prior formal instruction for the cost of each exam to be incurred by the parent.
