LHS Academy is an alternative education program serving as a dropout recovery – dropout prevention program designed to respond to the individual needs of students. The program creates an alternative route to graduation for students who have not been successful in the traditional school setting or who have extenuating circumstances that require an alternative program. Students will complete the state mandated Foundation Graduation Plan and are required to pass all End-of Course (EOC) exams in English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Students will be required to acquire twenty-two (22) credits in order to meet graduation requirements as outlined by the state. After meeting all state EOC testing requirements and achieving twenty-two state required curriculum credits, students will participate in a graduation ceremony.
The Edmentum/PLATO course programs combined with additional off-line assignments are used for accelerated individual study with teacher assistance. Students are expected to attend class a minimum of four (4) hours daily as well as complete a minimum of ½ credit each three weeks. A copy of progress reports will be sent home every four weeks. Graduation ceremonies are held in June of each year. The general high school diploma earned by our students is a stepping-stone to further education and/or employment, which will help enable students to be productive citizens.
LISD will provide transportation during normal AM and PM bus routes. Students in the LHS Academy are required to provide their own transportation if their schedule falls outside of the normal school day and AM/PM bus routes.
Students are expected to abide by the guidelines as described in the Livingston ISD Student Code of Conduct and school board policies as applied to the LHS Academy.
Students in the LHS Academy are not allowed to participate in extracurricular activities.
