Sneak Peak at World History

You have access to the course

24 hours a day, seven days a week, from any location that has an internet connection.

  • The first 28 days that you are active in the course serve as a “Free Trial” period.
  • You may drop the course during the first 28 days without it affecting your transcript.
  • If you decide to drop after the first 28 days, or you are dropped by the teacher for not completing the required assignments, it may go on your high school transcript as a failing grade.

Less than 50% complete = WF (Withdrawn Failing)

50% or more completed = CF (Complete Failed)


Parent and Student Course Expectations

Monthly Calls: Your teacher must complete a phone call with the parent and student at least once a month. Please help your teacher by scheduling an appointment for a monthly call before the last contact date turns red.

Academic Integrity Policy: You are not permitted to turn in work that is not your own and you should not share your work with others. We use to check your work against everything on the internet including other students’ papers. Plagiarism may result in being withdrawn failed from the course.

Sick/Computer Problems: If you get sick and cannot work for a week or if you have computer issues, please contact your instructor, so that alternate plans can be made.

Vacation Time: You have two vacation weeks built into each segment of the course. Please email or call your instructor before taking a vacation week. (Time can only be given in weeks, not days.)

importance of staying on pace
Importance of Staying on Pace
  • It is very important that you stay on pace and complete assignments each week, in order to successfully complete the course, so don’t go at a snail’s pace!
  • If you fall 2 weeks behind pace you may be sent to the Success Center. Once that occurs, we will need to set up a Success Plan (a new Pace Chart). If you don’t comply with the Success Plan, you will be administratively dropped from the course.
  • Communicate with your teacher if you are unable to

complete work, need help with an

assignment, or have questions

about the class.
