Frequently Asked Questions
How much time each week do I need to spend on school?
The state of Arizona requires varying hours depending on a students grade level. Young online students, K-3rd grade, should spend 20 hours per week on schoolwork, students in grades 4-5 should spend 25 hours per week, and students in grades 7-12 should spend 30 hours per week to maintain full-time status. If you are taking only one course, the requirement is 400 minutes per week. In addition to "attending" school the required length of time each week, students will also need to complete weekly goals and turn in assignments that are due each week.
How do I log into my courses and get started?
Students and parents will receive emails with information on how to get started. Students can also come into the WVA lab for orientation training. Please contact our office at 928-684-6717 to schedule in-person training. Our curriculum provider, Edgenuity, also has an orientation video as part of the class introduction.
