About the Program

PROGRAM DETAILS

The XCS Online Edge learning option is open to students in grades 6-12 and will utilize the Edgenuity Courseware platform. Students will be taught by teachers focused only on remote learners, and all students in the Online Edge courses will be remote learners from across the school district. Students will meet with their online teacher at least once per week to discuss course progress and academic assistance.

Unlike previous opt-in online learning options, the XCS Online Edge will only accept students who apply and qualify. Students must show evidence of previous remote learning success. 

Please note that in the XCS Online Edge program:
● Attendance will be taken daily. Students not attending (logging on and attending mandatory sessions) will be considered absent from school. Attendance procedures will be followed which may include reporting excessive absences to the attendance officer and dismissal from the Online Edge Program. 
● Students will be required to follow the code of conduct as if they were in school; this includes dress and language.
● Students may not be assigned a teacher from their in-person school. They will be enrolled in the program with other students from throughout the school district. 
● Students in the Online Edge program will need to attend in-person school on the days of standardized assessments.
● It is important to note your student will not be on Zoom while completing all class work and instruction. They will need to work independently on the Edgenuity Platform for hours each day.

COURSES
● Certain grade levels or courses in the remote learning program may become closed based on enrollment.
● Credit recovery courses will not be offered remotely. 
● At the middle school level, students will be enrolled in: Grade 6, 7, or 8- English/Language Arts, math, science, and social studies. No additional courses will be offered. 
● At the high school, general core classes will be offered, including English, math, science, and social studies. AP courses will require additional texts and fees.
● At the high school, limited elective courses will be offered.

QUARANTINE/EXTENDED ABSENCE
The Online Edge will not be an option for quarantined students or students with an extended absence. Extended absences from in-person school will be addressed by the student’s in-person teacher and principal. 

If a student has health issues that prevent them from attending in person, contact the building principal to inquire about homebound services.
