What is Online Learning?–Online learning provides flexibility for students to enjoy their summer and earn high school credits. Students work at their own pace and time within the Summer School parameters. Online learning requires a significant commitment of time and effort in order to be successful. Self-motivation and good time management are essential. Online classes are definitely more convenient and flexible, but are in some ways more difficult. During the summer session, the time commitment is even greater due to the condensed time from of the class. Students should plan on spending approximately 18 hours a week (approximately 3 hours daily) per class. Students who are traveling, attending camps, or plan to be away from their virtual class for more than two consecutive days during the summer session should notify their instructor of the dates they will be absent. There are a few guidelines a student MUST follow specifically during the summer school session.
