• 21-22 CBE Calendar

    Please reach out to your student’s counselor to request an application for credit-by exam or exam for acceleration. You may test during any window, but acceleration will only happen at the beginning of a new school year. All tests required for grade level or course credit must be completed and scores returned before the beginning of the new school year for acceleration to occur. 

  • CBE application calendar

    (1) Students may test during any testing window, BUT a student’s placement in a new course or grade level will only occur at the start of the new school year AND all subjects (grade level acceleration) or semesters (course acceleration) must be completed prior to the beginning of the school year. If all tests are not complete by the first day of school, the student will remain in the appropriately sequenced grade level or course. 

    (2) Exception to 1: LOTE students may be identified by counselors or their languages other than English (LOTE) teacher during the first week of the school year to test during window C2. Students will take the exam for both semesters on the same day. Student schedules may be changed dependent upon results for Window C2 tests ONLY but the change will be based on availability and may not be to a class of the student’s preference. 

    (3) Students testing in the 2022 C1 window for the first time may not have time to complete all required testing to be placed in a new course for the 22-23 school year. 

    (^) New to Forney ISD students who enroll after May 25, 2022 will need to contact their campus about application and testing details while counselors are on contract to determine availability of testing opportunities for exams for acceleration.
