The classes move rapidly, and have assignments that are due daily. Students cannot get behind in their work. If your student will miss an online class meeting, he or she will need to carefully read the transcript from the online class (which is sent to everyone each week), as well as the lesson, and do the assignments by the due dates. If you plan to be gone for a week or more, you will need to wait to enroll your child in a session that will not have interruptions. Students have extreme difficulty in catching up with missing assignments. In addition, it is unfair to the student and to the teacher to have a student rush through assignments.
