School Hours Starting with the 2013-14 school year, Waynesville R-VI students will only be allowed to miss 5 (five) days each semester. This policy change is necessary due to the change in attendance requirements for accreditation established by the State of Missouri. Accreditation status shows that a school district is meeting state performance standards. To be fully accredited, the state requires 90 percent of the students to be at school 90 percent of the time. In addition, a district must ensure continuous improvement and innovation to increase student achievement and prepare students for success in college and careers.
