I would advise laptop -one of our student panelists said there were some issues with using the chrome books with some of the classes…this is not verified by me, just what she was saying

If a student has taken Latin 1A & Latin 1B, can that student take Latin 2 as his elective instead of a Middle School Elective?

Can they use iPads for the Zoom classes. I purchased chromebooks but I do want the annotate feature
Gregory Harmon

I heard the discussion on the chrome book, what platform do you recommend?
Travis Epperson
01:37:19
Becca, the 5 courses are semester long, they will have 5 new classes the next semester. Most of the core classes are just the 2nd half, like Algebra 1A first semester, then Algebra 1B second semester, that is how they show up on the transcript
PM
01:37:59
If the 7th grade Science class is a repeat of material the student learned at a BASIS school in 6th grade, can the 7th grade student take 8th grade Science as a 7th grader?
Samantha Carter
01:38:41
Can we use iPads for the zoom lessons?
Shay Wallace
01:38:49
Samantha - you sure can!
Travis Epperson
01:39:31
@Carol, Canvas is where the class content is housed for most classes, Infinite Campus is where student information, etc is housed
Shay Wallace

Tracey -HS courses are on a case by case basis and will be based on what the student did in 7th grade as well as their math placement testing.
