This is Oklahoma, if that makes a difference.

Freshmen must PASS their EOIs in order to graduate. We've been told that they get one more chance if they fail. So, the ninth graders who failed their tests this month, if they fail again in December, what then? Do they just quit school? If failing the EOI test means that they can't graduate, what will be their motivation for staying in school? For trying to pass classes?

I don't live in Oklahoma, but according to this:

http://sde.state.ok.us/AcctAssess/pdf/FlowChart_EOI.pdf (broken link)

The students must pass EOI (end of instruction tests) which is basically a final, to graduate. I would take that to mean what it usually means. If a student doesn't pass, and they are giving them two chances-unlike most finals, then they take that course again the next semester/school year.

If you want to know exactly the route to go, then the question needs to be asked of the school itself.

If that's true, that's a really sad statement for your school.

This is a news report I found by simply googling your specific question. I can't speak for it's reliability, however it states what the alternatives are.

Students in Oklahoma schools have to pass 4 of the 7 EOIs. Biology, Algebra I, and English 2 and one other (it doesn't matter which one). If a student is enrolled in a class that has an EOI they must take that EOI whether they need it to graduate or not. If you fail and EOI you can take it up to three times.

END OF INSTRUCTION TESTS As part of SB 982 passed by the Oklahoma Legislature, all students must pass four of seven End of Instruction (EOI) tests in order to graduate from an Oklahoma High School. Two required tests that a student MUST take and PASS are Algebra 1 and English II. In addition, students will also be required to PASS two (2) of the following remaining EOI tests: Algebra II, English III, Geometry, Biology, US History Students have the opportunity to be remediated and retest if they do not score a minimum of Proficient on these tests. If, after retests, students have still not passed the testing requirement there are other methods to meet this requirement. Work with your BAHS counselor during your junior and senior year to make sure you have passed all necessary testing requirements.

The freshman in question is more than halfway through college now....
