Keep EMPOWERING...

Digital Learning Environments at SHHS

With online courses, students are EMPOWERING themselves with flexibility in the traditional school schedule. Science Hill offers online courses to any rising 9th – 12th grade student. Online courses may be used to take one extra class per semester, free up an elective spot in the regular school day schedule, or make-up credit for a failed class. Students complete online courses OUTSIDE THE REGULAR SCHOOL DAY using Canvas, and the course is facilitated by a certified SHHS teacher. Students may receive additional face-to-face support through a student requested appointment or through a teacher required meeting. With school administrator approval, if an online course for first-time credit is not offered at SHHS, we are able to provide a limited number of online course opportunities through our partnership with the Niswonger Foundation. Please see a SHHS counselor with questions about the enrollment process, registration deadlines, and procedure/policy for online courses. Give online courses consideration and keep EMPOWERING!

 

How do I know if online courses are for me? To be the most successful in online courses you should be comfortable with:

  • Scheduling time outside of the school day to complete the requirements of your online work, even when life gets busy
  • Organizing your work so that you are responsible in meeting deadlines for online assignments
  • Asking questions in Canvas and/or seeking face-to-face support of your teacher when you have concerns or misunderstandings

 How do I register for an online course?

  • Print and complete the Online Course Registration Form and return to your counselor
    • Blank forms are available from your counselor and each office. Forms are also available in the back of this program
    • This form will not be approved by your counselor without your parent/guardian signature
  • Once approved for the online course(s), your counselor will enroll you in the course(s) and notify you that you are enrolled
  • You will receive a welcome email from your online course teacher through your JCS student email account/Canvas for SHHS Online Courses or from your Niswonger online course instructor
    • The student is responsible for monitoring your JCS student email/Canvas for communications from the online teacher

What are the online course procedures/policies I should know?

  • To avoid being charged a $50 course drop fee, you must remain enrolled in the online course for the duration of the term
  • If you drop the course on or after the “drop without penalty” date, you must pay a $50 penalty fee, and you will receive a grade of “F” for the course on your transcript
  • Students may take no more than:
    • Two online course credits in the summer term
    • One online course credit in the fall term
    • One online course credit in the spring term
  • From Summer through Spring, students may take no more than THREE total online course credits
  • Consideration of any exception to the online course procedures/policies may be directed to the school principal, Todd Barnett, or his designee
