Policies and Procedures

  • ONLINE SUMMER COURSEWORK ATTENDANCE

    Students in online classes are expected to log in to Edgenuity and work each day. Students will be expected to check in with their assigned teacher on a weekly basis. Coursework can be completed wherever there is a wireless connection.

    Due to the high demand for online summer school, students whose Edgenuity accounts are inactive for 72 hours or more will be withdrawn from the course. Fees will be forfeited and students will need to complete their coursework at a later date and time.

    A student may take up to TWO (2) online courses over the summer, but not at the same time. They may not begin a new course until after they’ve completed their current course, and they may not begin a new course after week 4 of summer school.

    IN-PERSON SUMMER COURSEWORK ATTENDANCE

    Students taking in-person classes are expected to attend the entirety of summer coursework each day. Due to the intense concentration of the summer coursework curriculum, students who are absent for more than TWO (2) days will be withdrawn from the class. Fees will be forfeited and students will need to complete their coursework at a later date and time.

    TARDINESS

    In-person students are expected to be on time to class each day. Students who are tardy will be required to obtain an “admit” pass from the dean or the summer administrative assistant. Tardiness can also lead to dismissal from summer school, so it is important to arrive at school on time as well as return promptly from each break.
