Important Information

Helpful Tips

  • Add TRECA's number as a contact in your phone so you don't miss important calls from us. Our phone number is (888) 828-4798.
  • Use the Evolve Portal to check on your student's attendance, submit an absence, and more.
  • Reach out to our SAFE team if you or your student are experiencing social-emotional or family problems that may be serving as barriers to learning and keeping students from reaching their full potential. We're just a phone call or email away and are here to help however we can.


TRECA students are required to log in to Brightspace and complete schoolwork every scheduled school day in order to be counted present. Students need to work 5 hours and 10 minutes each day, and a total of 25 hours and 40 minutes each week. If students do not meet the required hours, they may be automatically withdrawn as required by the State of Ohio. You can find the full Attendance Policy in the Student Handbook.

If you need to request an excused absence for your student, please submit the absence in the Evolve Portal using these steps.

State Testing

State testing is required by the State of Ohio each year. TRECA will mail a testing letter with information about dates and times to the student's address prior to their tests. Please make sure to keep your address up-to-date in Evolve so that your testing letter arrives on time. Click the link below to find out when your student will be taking tests.

For more information about Ohio's state tests, please visit the Ohio Department of Education's website.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a non-aversive behavioral framework that uses evidence-based practices to improve school climate and culture, achieve improved academic and behavior outcomes, and increase learning for all students. TRECA Digital Academy believes the school environment should be one that ensures the care, safety, and welfare of all students and staff members. Efforts to promote positive interactions and solutions to potential crises will be used. If a student’s behavior presents a threat of immediate harm to the student or others, the use of approved physical restraint or seclusion to maintain a safe environment may be used as a last resort.
