As a public school, scholars are expected to adhere to the attendance policy for the Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAS).
The following points are the general expectations of a scholar attending AAS:
- Scholars are required to log into and progress through each of their classes according to their course pacing plan.
- Scholars can expect to work about one hour per subject or up to six hours a day as per a traditional school; times per subject will vary based on individual scholar ability.
- Scholars are expected to complete the assignments according to the pacing guidelines provided and reach out to their teachers and/or mentors with questions to ensure their success.
- Scholars are encouraged to communicate with each of their assigned teachers and/or mentors at least once a week via email, instant messenger, phone or the web-based classroom.
- Scholars are assigned activity logs and are required to record a brief summary of any work completed either on or offline for the day, including when scholars attend virtual classes. Scholars need to update this log weekly and then students must turn these in with a parent signature every 20 days.
- Scholars who do not log into any course and/or do not show adequate work progress for seven days may be administratively dropped from the program.
- Scholars may be administratively dropped from individual courses if adequate progress has not been made in any given course.
- Despite any technical difficulty with scholar operated computers, scholars are responsible for logging in every weekday, completing their assignments and adhering to the attendance policy.
- Scholars are to attend all state testing in person at a school designated location.
