Flagstaff High School administrators and counselors advise all students to take courses in a traditional classroom setting with teacher directed instruction. However, we realize that certain extenuating circumstances can necessitate educational delivery options. In light of the increase in on-line learning opportunities, we would like you to be informed about the parameters of these on-line programs.
Flagstaff High School accepts credits from NCAA accredited on-line institutions only. Some examples of accredited programs used by our students: BYU Independent Study and Northern Arizona Distance Learning.
Students must pass an FUSD final assessment (with a grade of "C" or better) in order to earn credit in any of the 16 core courses, if the on-line program does not administer an "in-person" proctored final exam.
NCAA has strict guidelines about acceptance of on-line coursework. Please refer to their website for more information. http://www.ncaa.org/
PLATO courses are graded on a PASS/FAIL basis only. It is not recommended that college bound students take a course through PLATO.
PLATO courses are designed for credit recovery purposes.
A successful on-line education takes time-management skills, dedication, self-motivation and a solid foundation of the subject matter. Please review your educational options with your high school counselor before choosing an on-line education program.
