Watch the slideshow below to help you determine if online learning is right for you.
PVOnline students who do not take a course(s) on a district campus are responsible for recording time spent each day on the PVOnline Attendance Form. This form is accessed through the student portal of Infinite Campus. There is a link in every course to this form as well as instructions on how to complete the form. Students are required to log time spent on any activity related to the course, either on or offline.
Arizona Law requires that students taking online courses away from their school site keep a daily log for their time spent on academic tasks related to their online learning. Our district uses the log-in hours to report attendance to the state of Arizona for our off-campus students. The law specifies the amount of log time that is required for students. The Arizona Department of Education has determined that it should take at least 112.5 hours to complete an online semester course for students in high school. Middle School students will be required to complete at least 133.5 hours per online semester course. Kindergarten students will be required to complete at least 346 hours, students in grades 1 - 3 will complete at least 178 hours per subject, and students in grades 4 - 6 will complete at least 223 hours per subject. If students do not log the appropriate amount of time, credit will not be granted for the course.
Record time for any activity related to your course, whether it is on the computer or not. This includes studying, reading, homework, projects, research, writing, and tests. Students are expected to record a minimum of 6 hours (360 minutes) a week, preferably at least one hour (60 minutes) per day, for each course you are taking.

Before taking the final exam, you must complete all your coursework. Once your coursework is completed, you must take final exams or complete a final project at the end of the semester. You will take your final exam in person. Final exams will be proctored.
Off-campus students must record the time spent on coursework on an online form. The form is available each time you log-in to your course(s).
PVSchools email is the primary tool used to communicate with your teacher, however, you can also communicate with your teacher through Google chat, video, or in person.
Students are expected to complete courses by the end of each semester. This keeps students on track with the number of required graduation credits. If you do not complete the course, there may be an opportunity to complete it the following semester or complete the credits during Summer School, if the course is offered. The Summer School option requires additional registration.
Military and NCAA candidates are encouraged to verify that online credits are accepted before you enroll in PVOnline.
Most PVOnline courses are designed to be conducted entirely over the Internet. If textbooks are needed, they can usually be found at your home school media center or bookstore. Some additional books may be required in Language Arts courses, and you can typically get them at the public or school library, or through book archival websites such as Project Gutenberg. Your instructor will tell you when you will need outside materials.
You should plan to work at least one hour per day for each class you take online. You may work on weekends or nights, if you wish. Working at your convenience is one of the benefits of online classes. Students are expected to work each day in their courses.
