College & career readiness

GISD Ready

Students build life skills and complete several of the steps necessary to land a college acceptance letter or job interview. Visit GISD College & Career Readiness Info on the district site for more information.

The state of Texas requires that students take college readiness assessments to determine if they are ready for college before they can take any college classes. There are three college assessments that can determine a student’s level of college readiness:

  • TSIA 2.0

  • SAT

  • ACT

Students who meet College Readiness standards established by the state of Texas can seamlessly transition to college without requiring remediation classes. Remediation classes cost students both time and money since they have to pay for courses that do not apply to a degree or certification before accessing the college-level classes they need to take.
