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. Verbal agreements with instructors will NOT be honored. Official requests must be submitted using the Extension Request Form. Requests, including a signed plan of work completion, must be submitted by the stated deadline (two weeks prior to the end of the term) to the A2 Virtual+ principal for consideration.
A student may only request a maximum of two (2) course extensions in any term. Extensions are for one or two weeks.
Extensions are only considered for students that have:
- earned most of the total number of mastered topics (ALEKS requires a different formula, inquire with the course instructor)
- earned 45-59% of total points in the course
- worked consistently in the course (minimum of 5 hours per week). Pandemic Guidelines- This consideration will have more flexibility. However, students who work less than 60% of the time in the course will not be considered.
If an extenuating circumstance arises:
- The parent/guardian and/or the student must contact the A2 Virtual+ instructor as listed in PowerSchool.
- The instructor should be notified of the circumstance, how long the student will be away from coursework, and the expected date of return.
- If the absence is due to a medical situation, the instructor and principal of A2 Virtual+ should be contacted as soon as possible and provided a doctor's note. Pandemic Guidelines will not require a medical note.
Extensions are not granted to students in grades 5-8 who have taken more than one math class in a semester. Students and parents sign a contract in agreement that all courses would be completed by the end of the second term.
