Grades 9 - 12
(a) A credit for high school graduation is defined as a minimum of 150 hours of instruction in a designated course which contains student performance standards as provided in Florida Statutes. The hourly requirement for one-half credit is defined to be one-half the requirement for full credit.
(b) When a student accumulates any combination of five (5) absences in one (1) or more courses within a semester, the principal shall notify the parents that their child may be in danger of losing credit(s). A copy of the attendance policy shall be included in the notification. All absences (excused and unexcused) will be counted.
(c) When a student accumulates ten (10) absences in a course within a semester, credit shall be withheld. However, provided the student does not exceed fifteen (15) absences, the student may take a county approved examination to demonstrate mastery of the student performance standards for that course. If the examination is passed sixty (60) or above, the examination grade and any approved projects will be averaged with the two (2) nine-week grades to determine the semester average. However, if the student makes a failing grade on the examination [fifty-nine (59) or below], the student shall receive an "F" for the semester.

Congratulations to Williston High School for making the Washington Post: America’s Most Challenging High Schools list for the second year in a row. Below is a brief explanation of the ranking. There are more than 22,000 public high schools in America and over 10,000 private high schools. Williston was ranked 1901 of 2063 schools on the list in America. Only 9 percent of all public high schools in America made the list.
We take the total number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year and divide by the number of seniors who graduated in May or June. I call this formula the Challenge Index. With a few exceptions, public schools that achieved a ratio of at least 1.00, meaning they had as many tests in 2013 as they had graduates, were put on the national list at washingtonpost.com/highschoolchallenge. We rank the schools in order of ratio, with the highest (21.91) this year achieved by the American Indian Public Charter in Oakland, Calif., which repeats as the top-ranked school.
“This is for students who drive cars to Williston High School campus.
Students who drive vehicles:
A. Purchase your parking pass, write your name on the back and get it displayed in the front of your car.
B. If you have purchased your parking pass, write your name on the back of the pass and get it displayed in the front of your car.
If you have a current parking pass and drive a replacement vehicle to school with no pass on it, come to Mr. Whitaker’s office to get a temporary pass for that day.
Vehicles parked in the student parking lot without a current year parking pass are subject to being towed at the expense of the owner of the vehicle.
