100% Distance Learning Choice Form


Plan A: Student Attendance

All students must finalize their in-person or 100% Distance Learning status by Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

Students who are designated 100% distance learning or who are home sick may be online for class. Students who are absent from both on-campus and 100% distance learning will follow school handbook guidelines for notifying the attendance office about the absence and communicating with educators about the missed work and assignments.

Due dates for missed assignments follow the guidelines for the number of days missed. Educators will work with students and counselors to determine a make-up work schedule for any extended absences. Educators will use Present and Absence On-Campus for all students attending in person. Verified Present Remote, Tardy, Unexcused Distance Learning, and Absence-Distance Learning will be used for all 100% remote students. 

Plan A: All Semester 2 Exams are 100% Remote

Semester 2 exams are all 100% remote to ensure equity of on-campus and distance learners.  

For the 2020-2021 school year, both Semester 1 and Semester 2 exams will count for 10% of the semester average. Students may come to campus to take their Semester 2 exams with their course educators. Students will have access to all resources that remote students have possible access to during the exam time. STARS and additional tech support will be available both on campus and remotely. Contact STARS by email to open a support ticket at stars@student.cghsnc.org.
