Extensions are only considered for students who have completed 45-59% of their course. Extensions are not granted for students who worked inconsistently in their course. Extensions are not granted for students who procrastinated. Extensions are intended for students who had an illness or extenuating circumstance during the term that caused them to deviate from the pacing chart. Students need to show weekly equivalent work for all weeks that are outside of the extenuating circumstance. If an extenuating circumstance arises the parent/guardian and/or the student must contact the AAPS instructor as listed in PowerSchool. The instructor should be notified of the circumstance, how long the student will be away from coursework, and expected date of return. If the absence is due to a medical situation, a doctor's note should be provided. All effort should be made to catch up work in as quick a rate as possible. If an extension is required, requests should be made through the assigned AAPS instructor or mentor. Extension requests for Michigan Virtual classes are at the discretion of the Michigan Virtual Instructor and need to be made through the AAPS mentor. Requests must be submitted 7 school days before the end of the term to be considered.
