Student Services
Online Courses for High School Students will provide the following student services:

Student Responsibilities
We find students are most successful in an online course when they make regular contact with our virtual staff. The instructor will give students an outline of all course requirements and will review the assignments for each week. If a student does not maintain contact and/or fails to submit required assignments, these procedures will be followed:
  • If a student does not submit the required assignments by the due date, an e-mail will be sent to the student and home school counselor.
  • If a student does not log onto the system for 48 hours, an e-mail will be sent to the student, the parent, and the home school counselor.
  • If a student fails to make contact for 72 hours, a conference will be called for the student, parent, and the home school counselor.

How to be a successful online learner:
  1. Work in your class daily for the recommended amount of time. For a regular credit bearing class we recommend 45 minutes per day. For an Advanced Placement class, we recommend 1.5 hours per day.
  2. Progress through the class in the order provided. Do not skip around.
  3. Keep a notebook for each class and take notes as you review the class material.
