Midland High Graduation Plans Were Correct

MIDLAND - Midland High seniors feeling the pressure from a credit error can breathe a sigh of relief.

About a month ago, the Texas Education Agency told Midland High they made a mistake in several seniors graduation plans.

Students were suddenly told they had to cram a years' worth of physics into four months in order to graduate.

The school was forced to set a plan in motion to get the kids back on track.

But then they started looking into the problem.

Turns out, they didn't do anything wrong.

It was actually the TEA that made the mistake.

Midland High's graduation plan for the students was right all along.

Now seniors in the situation have three options: they can either continue taking physics with no changes, they can return to their original plan, or if they are really ambitious, they can go back to their original plan while still continuing to take physics.

Midland High has apologized to the students for the mix up.
