Requirements for Open Doors
BASI: Please complete your BASI A tests as soon as possible. We would expect them to be finished within a couple of days after orientation. When you have finished, please call or email one of the teachers letting us know that you have completed this, as we do not receive notification from GradPoint.
Weekly Check-in: two-way communication by Google meet (group or one-to-one), phone, or in person, EVERY week that we have school. If you are sick, please don't come to school in person, but DO log in to one of the Google meet sessions. Or, if you are very sick and can't attend at all, please call, email, or ask someone else to call or email us to let us know.
Attendance: One in-person day OR one Google Meet each week, minimum. At least half an hour each time; however, we recommend 1.5 to 2 hours for in-person time. Students are welcome to attend multiple days if they wish. Virtual attendance can be during the open Google Meets listed at the link below, or through one-to-one Google Meets with a teacher.
Academic Progress required- as listed below. Our expectation is for you to work an hour a day or four hours a week at a minimum, the same as last year’s “in class” expectation.
Progress is monitored through the computer - we have access to your work.
