Attention Seniors!  The guidance department has provided a Class of 2019 End of Year Presentation filled with important dates and scholarship, diploma, and exam information.  Please see your guidance counselor with any questions.

For transcript requests, please visit the College and Career Planing page for specific instructions.

Williamson County Counselors have created a district-wide WCS Scholarship List that can be accessed on our BHS College Career Planning page and under the “Scholarship” tab on the left.  Students are encouraged to browse the list as they search for college scholarships. Students can only access the list with their WCS Gmail accounts (ex: 000@myplace.wcs.edu).  This means that parents won’t be able to access the list unless they use their child’s Gmail account.

There has been an update on our Semester and Final Examination Board Policy 4.7001. As you know, this policy was pulled for review several months ago with proposed changes that would affect senior exam exemptions. Though the WCS School Board voted last night to pass the proposed change that requires no unexcused absences for senior exam exemption consideration, the updated policy will not go into effect until next school year. With that decision, please note that there will be no changes to this year’s senior exemption requirements. We will continue with the same expectations as last semester for the rest of this school year. Please see the policy linked below for senior exemption expectations and let us know if you have any further questions.

For more information, view the Semester and Final Examination Board Policy 4.7001  and begin reading at line 21.
