Student Expectations

  • Students should be spending one hour per day per course Monday through Friday working on each course. It may take more or less time depending on the student.
  • The syllabus for each course contains a recommended pacing guide. We highly recommend that you print off the guide and put in dates so that you complete on time.
  • Twice weekly communication with teachers and weekly progress in your course is expected. If students are not checking in twice a week, they may be dropped for truancy.
  • Students should reach out to their teachers if they are having trouble. The best thing you can do is ask for help!
