Students planning to take dual credit:
Dual credit courses are offered through Weatherford College and BHS students must register with WC to take those courses. To register with WC students must complete an Apply Texas application. You may see Ms Jerrett for help with the application process.
Additionally, to take dual credit courses students must pass a TSIA test. For math classes students must pass the TSIA Math test while Speech and Psychology, U S History, English 1301, Government and other require the TSIA2 ELA test. The TSIA test will be given on campus during the school day and takes a minimum of 1 1/2 hours to complete. The next test opening is Monday, May 16th. ELA tests are $10 and the Math portion is $5. Get with Mrs. Wilcox or Ms. Jerrett to schedule a test date
If you have questions about the process or previous test scores please see Mrs. McClintock, Ms. Jerrett or Mrs. Wilcox.

Off Campus Lunch - Off campus lunch is only available to Juniors and Seniors. Freshmen and Sophomores may not leave campus for lunch unless a parent or guardian comes to the school and checks out their son or daughter. They may not be checked out remotely and leave campus with a Junior or Senior.
Commitment to Excellence(C2E) – We have implemented a new program this year called Commitment to Excellence. The program is designed to reinforce good study habits and time management skills for our students. This adds an extra layer of accountability to ensure that students are completing their assignments in a timely manner so as not to fall behind and keep up with the pace of the curriculum. If a student does not complete an assignment by the due date that student may not have mastered the skills necessary to learn the next phase of the curriculum. C2E takes place in the library during lunch every day. Two staff members monitor C2E and at times tutors are available to assist struggling students. The process works like this:
1. Student misses or doesn’t complete an assignment by the due date.
2. Teacher assigns student a “C2E”.
3. The student attends mandatory C2E at his or her next lunch period by reporting to the library at the beginning of lunch. At that time the student may go to the cafeteria and get lunch and bring it back to the library.
4. Student completes missing assignment and works on any other outstanding assignments.
5. Student must remain in the library until the completion of the lunch period.
As always, if a student still needs help with the material our regular tutoring hours 7:40-8:00 a.m. daily and at lunch or after school by appointment.
