Frequently Asked Questions

  • What if I am taking a year-long course? Do I work on both semesters at once?

    No - The student should work on first semester and finish it and then begin second semester. There is no penalty for waiting to start the second semester class.

  • Do students have to log in at certain days or times?

    Posted by:

    Students have complete flexibility over when and where they work on their coursework. There are not designated times at which they need to be logged in. The system does have suggested due dates for when students should turn in assignments if they wish to remain on track. There is no penalty for turning in assignments early or late.

  • Are online courses easy?

    Posted by:

    For many students, online courses are NOT easy and require a fair amount of dedication and work. There is a high volume of reading and studying that students must be ready to take on.

  • How are online classes different from in-person classes?

    Posted by:

    In online classes, students are responsible for learning and making progress in their course. The teacher's role is to grade assignments and respond to student questions when asked.

  • Can I decide to drop my summer school classes if I learn they are not right for me?

    Posted by:

    Yes - we will accept drops with no grade penalty up until June 30. After June 30, a WF grade will be entered for students who did not finish their course and an F will be entered for students who were not able to pass all parts of their final exam, which is a requirement for online classes.

  • Can parents have access to the course materials and their students' progress?

    Posted by:

    Yes! We will be sending information in late May about how parents can register for a parent portal account. This parent portal will allow parents to see their child's grades and course materials. Once parents have a portal account, they can also sign up for text message and/or email alerts about their child's progress.
