Attendance for Brazos HS and Lake Waco Acceleration Academy
Lake Waco Acceleration Academy (LWAA) students are required to attend full day while Brazos High School students are required to attend a 4-hour session. LWAA hours are 8:30a.m.-4:00p.m and BHS hours are 8:00a.m-12:00pm and 12:30pm-4:30p.m. The BHS students will be allowed a small 30 minute window after each start time to report to class. This should not be an everyday occurrence. However, we do understand there may be circumstances that arise from time to time. Students can make up previous absences by attending the opposite session in which they are scheduled. You cannot make up attendance in the same day that you were marked absent. If the student's trend of attendance becomes a pattern, they will be administratively switched to the opposite session to accommodate their attendance habits. All absence notes must be submitted to the PEIMS office. LWAA students can make up attendance before and after school. If either student attends Saturday School (at UHS or WHS) or the COVE (after school only), the time is recorded into TEAMS which is eligible for attendance recovery. The formula for attendance recovery is 1 hour = 3 hours of attendance recovery. This time will be kept by the teacher or staff member whom the student is serving attendance recovery under. The PEIMS Specialist and Counselor will retrieve the documents and award attendance recovery to that student. Regardless if a student is within their cohort or graduation year, they risk the chance of being dropped due to non-attendance, so attendance is the priority to staying enrolled at Brazos High School.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school at 754-9422.
