Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  Why haven’t my classes been activated by my teacher?
A.  Students and parents must complete a welcome call with each teacher BEFORE you will be activated in your classes.

Q.  How do I know how many assignments are due each week?
A.  Each teacher will provide you a pace chart.  Do not follow the pace chart that is listed in the course information section.  Stay on pace – you can work ahead, but do not fall behind.
