O'Connor High School and NISD are offering summer instructional programs for students who are behind in credits or working to get ahead to make room for other courses, have failed a course, or who still need to pass one or more STAAR End of Course tests to graduate. All programs begin Monday June 13. Students who qualify to retrieve or accelerate certain credits can register for OHS Summer Credit Retrieval (information flyer HERE) with their counselors and an application is attached HERE. NISD Summer School will be offered at Stevens High School and will offer a wide variety of courses for both students who need to make up credits or who wish to take an elective to make room in their O'Connor schedule for other courses. A full list of courses with the summer schedule and costs is available HERE. Note that O'Connor students can avoid long lines and secure their spots in summer school courses by registering with the OHS Bookkeeper between May 2 and 27. Finally, students who still need to pass a STAAR End of Course test previously taken should plan to attend Accelerated Instruction, a program designed to especially focus on prepping for the July EOC Retest. Information is available HERE. EOC Retests will be given on our campus July 11-15 beginning at 8 a.m. according the following schedule: English 1 - July 11, Algebra 1 - July 12, English 2 - July 13, Biology - July 14, US History - July 15.

The O'Connor High School Class of 2016 will graduate at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 10 at the Alamodome. A mandatory practice will take place at 8 a.m. that morning, also at the Alamodome. Bus transportation will be provided from O'Connor TO PRACTICE ONLY, and buses will leave campus at 6:45 a.m. Graduates should return to the Alamodome at 2 p.m. for check-in in their caps and gowns. As seniors prepare for graduation, here's a list of important things to remember: Graduation Check List. For the ceremony, the District produces a listing of all scholarships that have been awarded to O'Connor seniors. To be included in this publication and have a scholarship announced at Graduation, seniors must complete the senior scholarship form and turn it in at the Counselors' office by the end of the day Monday, May 16. Seniors should include all scholarships they have been awarded, no matter if they will use them or not. Find the form here: Senior Scholarship Form.
The ceremony will be live-streamed on the NISD website, for those unable to attend. That evening after the ceremony, O'Connor graduates are encouraged to attend Project Graduation, an all-night drug-free and alcohol-free party. Tickets are currently on sale for $40. Download more information and the registration form here: Project Graduation Registration Form. We're also looking for parent volunteers interested in chaperoning the event that night. If you'd like more information or you want to help with the event, email us at email@example.com.
