VHS students are expected to attend and participate in their online course as fully as they would attend and participate in a traditional classroom course. All assigned work should be completed in a timely fashion, and students must actively participate in course discussions.
At an absolute minimum, students are required to log-in and perform work in their online course five times per week, bearing in mind that a week is expected to contain at least 5-7 hours of coursework.
Time management and self-motivation are essential skills for success in a Virtual High School class. Please consider this when endorsing a student’s request to participate in Virtual High School. Participation in an online course will require students to be involved in independent and collaborative projects and research. Students must plan their work, be responsive to deadlines, and be conscientious in completing assigned tasks.
