Summer 2019 Policies
The following sections contain our policies regarding each area of concern. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Policies may be subject to change before the start of summer, so please keep apprised of any changes that might occur.
Attendance, Workload & Pace
Ten-credit academic courses require consistent attendance for scheduled instructional hours. Because courses move at an accelerated pace, students should be prepared to invest a considerable amount of time to complete all readings, writings, assignments, and group discussion preparation through guided learning and/or independent studies. Additionally, students must be present for the final on the last day of each semester. Legend does not encourage dropping classes frivolously. Our teaching goal is to enable a student to succeed, and we strive to use different teaching methods to fit different learning styles. It is our belief that learning often comes from perseverance. Therefore, before you decide to enroll, make sure you can commit to completing the course in its entirety and that you are able to handle any scheduling conflicts in advance.
Make-up Session Policies
Parents may plan make-up sessions if absences are needed due to minor schedule conflicts. You may reference the table below for fees required for make-up sessions. (Please refer to Attendance, Workload, & Pace section for expectations in these areas.)
Division 1 Makeup
Division 2 Makeup
Make-up Sessions are usually scheduled for Fridays, as teachers’ schedules tend to be very packed on Mondays through Thursdays. If you plan on being absent more than twice and are not able to devote any Fridays to make-up sessions, then we suggest enrolling only if your student is very academically disciplined and is able to self-study what he or she will miss. Although we make every effort to accommodate makeups, instructor availability is limited and not guaranteed.
Academic Clinics are free, optional drop-in sessions available on Friday mornings where teachers are available to answer questions. We encourage students to participate and take advantage of this resource as much as possible and parents to take this into considerations when they plan for the summer.
In all classes, students have the option to retake final exams to achieve the best results. For those who take this option, final grades would be calculated based on the higher score between regular finals and the retake. That is, there is no loss on the students if they want to attempt higher. However, we also expect students to try their absolute best to do well in the regular final and see this retake option as a learning and improvement opportunity. Students who are absent from the regularly scheduled final will not be given a second testing opportunity. The dates of Retake Finals are listed below:
- Session I: 8/02/2019, 1:30 PM
- Session II: 8/23/2019, 4:00 PM
- Special schedule requests are available for $150 proctoring fee. All retakes must be completed within 2 weeks after the completion of the course.
Transcripts and Reporting
Upon completion of a course, students may request transcripts for reporting here. Transcripts are cumulative for returning students.
