Handbook, Attendance, and Courses

Student Handbook

The Student Handbook is your official resource from TRECA for all our policies and procedures. The handbook includes things like:

  • Graduation Requirements
  • Discipline Policies
  • Non-Discrimination Policy
  • And more!

Plagiarism is copying the words or ideas of another person and passing them off as your own without naming the source from which you collected your information. Plagiarism is serious, and repeated use of plagiarized material may result in suspension and even removal from school. Read more about TRECA's Plagiarism Guidelines in the Student Handbook.


As a TRECA student, you're required to log in to Brightspace and complete schoolwork every scheduled school day in order to be counted present. The guide below shows how much time you need to work on your schoolwork each day and week.

Daily time: 5 hours 10 minutes
Weekly time:
25 hours 40 minutes

If you don't complete 5 hours 10 minutes of work on a day, the time not completed must be made up during the week so that you have an overall weekly time of at least 25 hours 40 minutes. You can find the full Attendance Policy in the Student Handbook.

Tracking your hours can sometimes be confusing, but we have a guide and video explaining how to use the Attendance screen in the Evolve Portal!

Students and families can request excused absences in the Evolve Portal. Check out this article from the Help Desk to learn how to request an excused absence.

Students and families can check attendance in the Evolve Portal. Check out this article from the Help Desk to learn how to check and understand the Daily Time Summary page in Evolve.

Courses and Progress

Check out the courses we offer for grades 7-12 in our Course Catalog. Use the catalog to plan ahead, decide which elective you'd like to take, or learn more about a course. As always, your counselor is on hand to answer any questions you have about your course schedule or graduation requirements.

Students need to complete 1 block of work every 3 weeks in order to earn credit and stay on pace. Students should plan to finish 5 credits in a full school year. To be successful, we recommend students meet with their teachers often.

Transcript Requests

To request a copy of your transcript, please visit the link below to use the online request form. We will send your transcripts directly to the organizations you request.


Release of Information Opt-Out

TRECA Digital Academy students who are 18 years or older may choose to opt-out from allowing release of their information with other people or organizations.


Event Permission Form

TRECA students who are requesting to attend another school's event, such as prom, homecoming, etc., should complete this Event Permission Form. This will prompt a TRECA administrator to review the student's progress and attendance. Most forms require the administrator to determine that the student is in good standing. At TRECA, this is confirmed by a thorough review of the student's progress in each course, as well as daily student time (5 hours and 10 minutes per school day).


State testing is required every year. Find your dates here.


Mental Health & SAFE


The Student Assistance & Family Engagement (SAFE) team provides assistance to TRECA Digital Academy students that are experiencing social-emotional and family problems that may be serving as barriers to learning.

If you're in need of assistance or just need someone to talk to, please reach out! Our caring SAFE staff are only a phone call or email away and are here to help.


Mental Health

We know students are juggling a lot these days: family, friends, school, work, and extracurricular activities. It's completely normal to feel a range of emotions while trying to manage and tackle all these things. You may feel stressed, sad, lonely, or hopeless. It's also normal not to know how to handle these emotions. The SAFE team is committed to helping you stay in tune with your mental health, cope with the stresses of life, and realize your full potential. If you or someone you know may be struggling with their mental health, please reach out to a SAFE team member or a community resource for help.



SEL stands for Social Emotional Learning, the way young people learn skills to manage stress, handle difficult emotions, make big decisions, and build healthy relationships with others. TRECA provides access to BASE Education, which is a program that helps students learn more about themselves and supports things like mental health, self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, self-management, and responsible decision-making.
