• Attendance in WVA courses will be measured through participation in assignments, completion, and submission of lessons, reading required novels, and in general correspondence with the WVA teachers, as well as hours recorded in the learning management system.   Attendance will be submitted each week either in hard copy form turned in or online through the StudentVue/ParentVue Portal.  

    • The Arizona Department of Education has determined:
      • High school students will be required to complete at least 112.5 hours for each online semester course
      • Middle School students will be required to complete at least 133.5 hours per online semester.
      • Students in grades 4 - 6 will complete at least 223 hours per subject.

    If students do not log the appropriate amount of time, credit will not be granted for the course.

    The students can schedule their weekly required hours as they like each week, but they need to have the correct total of hours completed for each semester's required class at the end of 18 weeks.   If evenings and weekends work better for the student, this is fine, but the student will not have the advantage of emailing a teacher and getting a prompt reply immediately back.  All WUSD teachers work at school for 9 hours per day and will probably not respond to email questions until the next business day.  WUSD Teachers will post their WVA office hours to check progress and answer emails each day, so the student knows when to expect a reply.  Students enrolled in SIS courses will need to communicate with those instructors regarding office hours. 

    All WVA courses are designed to be highly interactive and require that the students participate in the course content online each week, and communicate with instructors.  A student’s learning and ultimate success depend upon participation.
