Summer School Session Guidelines
In order to complete courses by the established deadlines, students should work a minimum number of hours per day as indicated below.
- .5 Cyber credit = 8 hours per week
- 1 Cyber credit = 15 hours per week
- 1.5 Cyber credits = 23 hours per week
- 2 Cyber credits = 30 hours per week
All students are expected to make diligent academic progress each session. Moreover, as students work through courses, they will need to check content, text, passages, etc. for accuracy to answer various types of questions. Copying and pasting from the Internet is a form of cheating. All work should be summarized or paraphrased, meaning students put information in their own words. Other forms of cheating, outlined in the student handbook under Violations of Academic Honesty, also apply during Summer School. The district continues to monitor student computer usage also through our Securly monitoring system.
