Middle and High School FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Attendance Required?

Yes. Class Connect sessions will be labeled optional or required. Required class connect sessions are required for you to attend. This is your recorded attendance.

What Do I Do If I Miss a Class?

Email your content teacher to communicate your absence. The teacher will release a recording for you to watch so no instructional time is missed. You must email your teacher a summary of what you learned in order to receive attendance. If you will be absent for a longer period of time (more than a day), please contact your advisor as well.

Is There Flexibility With Content Assignments?

Many assignments do have due dates. Please contact your teacher for individualized needs.

Attendance Hours vs. Contacts?

Attendance hours are what Learning Coaches see in their Learning Coach account or K12 App for their student's attendance alerts. Entering in attendance hours is not required for Middle and High School students. Attendance contacts can be made through any two-way, education-related communication with a teacher or advisor.

There are four main ways to make attendance contacts:

1. Attend a live Class Connect session

2. Watch a class recording and email the teacher after watching

3. A two-way, education-related email exchange with a teacher/staff

4. An education-related phone call with a teacher/staff

After a student attends a live class or communicates with a teacher, advisor, or counselor, the staff member will mark your student’s attendance.

If you have any questions about attendance requirements, please contact your advisor.
