Only through continuous communication can students be successful in an online course. Within each course the instructor outlines the weekly minimum work requirements. It is essential that the student and instructor maintain regular contact.
To ensure that our students are aware of this commitment, the three-part process below will be followed:
1. If the student does not submit the expected number of assignment(s) within a period of seven (7) consecutive days, the student and parent(s) will receive a letter notifying them of the student's unacceptable pace for submitting assignments.
2. If the student does not respond to the letter by submitting the appropriate number of assignments within seven (7) days, the instructor(s) will make a telephone call to the student/parent(s).
3. If the student does not respond by submitting assignments within fourteen (14) days of the initial letter, BVS will assume that the student does not intend to remain in the course, and the student will be administratively dropped from the course.
I acknowledge that during the first 28 consecutive days of being activated into my BVS course I may drop the course without penalty. I understand that for each online course there are a minimum number of assignments that must be completed each week. Failure to submit the minimum number of assignments on a weekly basis will result in my removal from the course and may result in a failing grade being assigned to my academic transcript. I must return all course materials and/or borrowed property to BVS. (Disclaimer: It is the requirement of the student/parent to be informed of Broward County School Board Policies).
