Summer School Course Expectations
Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to the policies and procedures that are described below. Failure to read the policies and procedures does not excuse students from the rules described therein.
VHS summer school students are expected to attend and participate in their courses daily. 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 attend and perform work in their classes five times per week, Monday through Friday. Students should expect 10 hours of coursework per week.
A student who neglects coursework, or has excessive or unexcused absences may be required to withdraw from the course. Required withdrawal from a course is equivalent in all respects to failing it; the student is assigned a grade of WF (withdrawal fail) and earns no credit for the course. In cases of extended absence due to illness (two days or more), the student, or the student's parent/guardian, should notify the teacher directly of any delay in providing assigned work. It is the responsibility of the student to make up work missed due to absence.
All work submitted to meet course requirements is expected to be the student's own work. A student suspected of academic dishonesty in any form is subject to review and disciplinary action by VHS Administration. Disciplinary action may result in termination from the course.
Acceptable Internet Use Policy
All students participating in VHS summer school are expected to conduct their communications in a professional, respectful manner. The use of proper Internet etiquette is expected at all times. Inappropriate language or behavior will result in disciplinary action and possible termination from the course at the discretion of VHS Administration.
The Virtual High School is committed to safeguarding the right of all individuals involved in summer school to work and learn in an environment that is free of harassment. Harassment on the basis of race, color, ancestry, religion, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, or disability in any form will not be tolerated and may result in termination from the course.
As in any classroom, the VHS summer school teacher will attempt to address discipline problems directly with the student prior to referring the student to VHS Administration. If the instructor is unable to resolve the problem, or if the infraction is such that it requires administrative notification, the teacher will contact VHS Administration and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
There is a common grading scale for all summer school courses offered by The Virtual High School. Grades range from A+ (100%) for excellent work to F (59% or below) for work that does not meet the minimum requirements of the course. Your current grade average will be available in your course each week and your final grade will be available in your course and be sent to you via email.
Once grades are finalized at the end of each course, students will be able to view and print their transcript by logging into their my.vhslearning.org account. Once logged in, click “View Transcript” located on the left-hand side. This will produce a PDF report of your transcript, entitled: Report.pdf. *We suggest that you save a local copy to your files. If you at any time you have trouble accessing this, please file a Service Ticket at http://service.govhs.org/.
