Overview: Afternoon and evening classes are offered in both the fall and spring semesters. Afternoon classes meet 14 times, once each week from 2:00 to 4:45. Evening classes meet 14 times, once each week from 5:00 to 7:45. Students successfully completing a course will earn a half credit. Students are enrolled in courses through their home school.
Classroom Expectations: Individual teachers evaluate student work, assign grades and establish and enforce classroom guidelines. Every student is responsible for understanding each of their teacher’s individual classroom policies.
Attendance: This is very important. Students are required to attend a minimum of 12 classes in their entirety and do the work required by the instructor at an acceptable level of competency in order to earn a half credit.
- Half Credit Courses: Students are allowed to miss only 2 class periods in each half credit course without having to make up any work. Students who miss 3 or 4 class periods in a half credit course are required to make up the work missed. Students who miss more than 4 class periods will be withdrawn from that class.
- Quarter Credit Courses: Students are allowed to miss only one class period in each quarter credit course without having to make up any work. Students who miss 2 class periods in a quarter credit course are required to make up the work missed. Students who miss more than 2 class periods will be withdrawn from that class.
- Three Saturdays, 9:00 AM to 4:45 PM, are scheduled at the end of the semester for this purpose. Make-up work may only be made up on these Saturdays. The value of the make-up work is determined by the individual instructors. Students enrolled in more than 4 courses during any semester need to be very careful about absences because there may not be enough scheduled make-up time to complete all work missed. Please see your counselor if you have questions.
- Please note that because the hourly attendance requirements are less than what would be found at a student’s home school, the Off Campus School does not work with excused and unexcused absences. All absences are recorded the same, regardless of what might be excused or unexcused at a student’s home school.
