Do I have to enroll full-time?
No. While enrolling full-time is a great option, we understand that it isn’t right for everyone. Students can choose to enroll in our school on a full or part-time basis.
Can I still take some courses at my home school?
Yes. We have a great working relationship with all of the schools in the Jordan School District. Students who enroll in our school are still able to take courses from their home school.
Can I still play sports and participate in extracurricular activities?
Yes. Students who enroll in our school can still participate in sports and activities.
Where will I graduate from?
Students who enroll full-time with us will receive their diploma from Kings Peak High School. Those who enroll part-time will receive their diploma from their home school.
Can I complete courses early?
Yes. This is a key element of virtual learning. Students are able to complete coursework on an accelerated time scale.
How will I get help if I need it?
Your teachers will be there to help. You will be able to schedule time to meet with your instructor through virtual conferencing or in-person if you need. Your teachers care about your success and are happy to meet with you.
What if I just want a place to come and work?
Students will have access to a computer lab where they can come in to work if they wish. Many students find that they work best if they have a place to go. Even if they work independently, having a dedicated place to work helps to create a successful routine.
Do I have to work at a certain time?
Teaches will provide live learning opportunities in every course each week. Students who are able to join are encouraged to do so. If they are not, the live instruction will be recorded for those unable to attend.
How much live instruction will there be?
Each week, teachers will have 2 live sessions. Each will be approximately 30 minutes. In addition to the live sessions, students will complete assignments each week based on that instruction. Combining the time spent on live instruction and independent work will be similar to the amount of time a student would have spent on the same course if it was taken in a traditional setting.
What are synchronous and asynchronous learning?
Synchronous learning is the type of learning that happens when students and teachers meet together. Asynchronous learning is the type of learning that students do independently. In each case, materials will be accessed through Canvas.
