How much time will my student spend doing school work during the day/year?
Students may work on their assignments and learning tasks at any time of the day or week. This allows students to work at their own pace while having access to high-quality curriculum and New Philadelphia City School District’s teachers.
Students are expected to work 5 to 5.5 hours per school day. Students may work up to ten hours per day to "get ahead" or to "catch up" if they choose. At the end of the school year, students must have 920 hours of attendance (or 230 hours per quarter).
Can I change my mind throughout the school year?
Yes, the NPCSD has designed theses options to help students seamlessly transition to and from traditional school and eSchooling. We understand that situations may change for families as the year progresses, therefore, enrollment in this option is flexible. For educational and planning purposes we are asking for families to make transitions at the nine-week marks.
