Eighth grade transition meeting scheduled for Feb. 6

Denton ISD will hold its annual eighth grade transition meetings at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, at each of the district’s four comprehensive high schools.

 
The meeting will feature an information session, specifically for parents, which explains the high school enrollment process and other procedures needed to ease the transition from eighth to ninth grade for each student. In addition, up-to-date information will be given on high school graduation requirements made by the State Board of Education.
 
There will also be an activity fair during the evening, allowing students and their families to visit with teachers, counselors, coaches and staff as well as learn about clubs, organizations, athletics and other elective choices. Families are advised to attend the transition meeting at their corresponding feeder high school in an effort to get the most effective support from the campus.
