We are working to have some other LSC’s join our team! So I hope to have teammates soon!
I have a fun supply list for you it will come in my welcome letter too but here is a link!
Supply List Link - https://bit.ly/ASUMSSupplies
Students will have a different teacher for each course
Once a week for each class.
Yes, that is correct Travis
Tracey - yes for the most part. Unless we see a unique need for a schedule change it will be set
Andrea, middle school students will log 35 hours per week.
Travis - Session 2 students will start NSO on the 17 and academic classes the following week! :)
Tracey, here is a link to many important documents, including the handbook. It is still showing 19-20 handbook as kids finish up their summer session, but that will switch over soon to the 20-21 handbook. https://www.asuprepdigital.org/resources/
Hi Mike - yes I will be sending out the presentation in my welcome letter
Will the recording of this session be made available later?
Yes Jim we will have the recording available and in my welcome letter!
When can I expect to see my child's schedule?
Grace period is 14 days from start date
Daniela - schedules should be finished next week
@Betsy, speak to your LSC about college credits
Do we get to chose the electives
@Sarah, the live lesson calendar will be located on the home page of each course in Canvas
@Daniela yes you get to choose your electives
Infinite Campus is that a different software and login?
there are many questions on the Q&A tab as well
Does the prep academy have a band
Does a Chromebook work well with the course content?
thank you all for what you do! we appreciate you!
@Desii yes it does!
Thank you so much Michelle - we are so excited for this year!
Thank you @heather !
Do we have national junior honor society?
So that will be a different login for Clever software?
what is the total enrollment for middle school?
electives are one semester long
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
Betsy, all tests are online except for the state standardized testing. Those will be administered at sites throughout the state
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
I heard the discussion on the chrome book, what platform do you recommend?
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
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?
Can we use iPads for the zoom lessons?
Samantha - you sure can!
@Carol, Canvas is where the class content is housed for most classes, Infinite Campus is where student information, etc is housed
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.
