Foundation High School Program Endorsement Career Links will provide you with information regarding the new graduation requirements established by House Bill 5, 83rd
Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013.
This series of bulletins takes a closer look at each endorsement area and connects those endorsement pathways to career opportunities. Each comprehensive issue
contains vital information about the guidelines of the Foundation High School program and endorsement selection requirements. In addition, they feature careers
that are specific to each endorsement area and the accompanying labor market information for each job title.
Use this excel spreadsheet, co-created by Texas Workforce Commission and Texas Education Agency experts, to help you discover which Foundation High School Program
endorsements align with each individual occupation title in the state. Some occupations align with one primary endorsement while others also have secondary endorsement
recommendations. Keep in mind, any occupation that has the potential to align with more than one endorsement was assigned the Multi-Disciplinary distinction. Use the first
sheet in the file to see all occupations titles, or click on the sheet tabs across the bottom to look at the occupations in each individual endorsement area.
If you want to explore the labor market data in your region, you will need to know which Workforce Development Area (WDA) your current Education Service Center (ESC) is located in.
Use the following map that combines both records of regional boundaries to help you determine your appropriate ESC to WDA alignment. The pastel colors indicates the different WDA
regions while the dotted red lines show the ESC regional boundaries.
Our education partners value the data available through the Texas Workforce Commissionís online tools. The video tutorials on this page will show you step-by-step
how to get the most out of these tools, and discover practical ways to use this information.
