Taking online classes requires dedication and perseverance. Our classes are rigorous, and require consistent attention. Each of our courses, including credit recovery courses, require that students spend a minimum of 5.7 hours per week accessing the online content for each course.
This includes, but is not limited to, reading course materials offline, completing assignments, participating in field trips, and taking all required assessments. Students should plan to spend as much time working in their course as they would if they were taking a course during a class period at the high school, including additional time for homework.
We include this hour requirement in every SLP, and translate those hours to a maximum possible student FTE calculation for the state auditor in accordance with the Washington State Alternative Learning Laws, WAC (WAC 392-121-182.)
