For Clarity: If a student does NOT resolve his or her incomplete by the end of the Fall Semester of 2020 (December 18, 2020), the student will need to seek credit recovery for the entire course.
Q: What is the difference between core and elective classes?
A: Core courses are required for graduation and a Milestones assessment is required. While Elective credits are required also, a Milestones assessment is not given for those courses.
Q: If I have an Incomplete for a core class, when can I begin working on recovery?
A: For a core course Incomplete: If you are already familiar with Edgenuity and know how to work in the platform, you may begin as early as Monday, August 24, 2020. For en Elective course Incomplete: As soon as the teacher of the course contacts you, you may begin the work. However, the official start date for ELHS' Transition Academy is Friday, August 28, 2020.
Q: What do I do if I have a question about the coursework or an assessment in Edgenuity?
A: If you have a question, need to have a test unlocked, or have a concern, reach out to the teacher who is listed on your schedule for Transition Academy or you can reach out to Dr. Prothro @ email@example.com.
Q: How will teachers communicate with me about my work?
A: Teachers will send messages using Google Classroom and/or your school email account. (Accessing Office365: Student Guide)

Q: What grade will I receive for the work I complete in Transition Academy?
A: For students participating in Edgenuity, if the unit/course recovery grade is a 70 or higher, the transcript grade will be changed to reflect a 70. For students participating in teacher-created unit recovery activities, if the student earns a 70 or higher, their transcript grade will be changed to reflect a 70.
Q: Will I have to take a Milestones assessment for my Transition Academy class?
A: Possibly. If you are in Biology, US History, American Literature, or Algebra I for Transition Academy, YES, you will have to take the EOC for the course.
Q: What happens if I do not resolve the Incomplete?
A: All students must resolve COVID-19 incompletes during fall semester 2020. Any unresolved grades will revert to the grade earned for the 19-20 SY, which would be an F, on January 8, 2021.
Q: How quickly will my transcript be updated?
A: Please allow time for the change. Transcripts are expected to be updated by the end of the semester (December).
Q: Can I opt-out of Transition Academy?
A: On a case by case basis (by exception), a student can opt-out of a course while in the Transition Academy under the following circumstances:
o The opt-out course will not impact the student graduating on time with their cohort OR
o The student has more than 3 courses with COVID incompletes that need to be made up, and the course the student doesn’t want to work to resolve will not impact the student graduating on time with the student’s cohort.
For a student to opt-out, the following must occur:
o Student receives advisement with the graduation coach and school counselor AND
o The student’s parent consents to the child not resolving the COVID incomplete and thereby receives the earned grade on January 2021 for the associated course. Consent must be given in writing.
▪ Document parent conversation and consent in the parent contact log.
▪ Have a parent/guardian sign the consent form and maintain a record in the counseling office.
Q: Besides my Transition Academy teacher, who may I contact if I have a question or concern?
A: It is preferable that you contact your teacher first. If you have a question that your Transition Academy teacher cannot answer, please complete the contact Dr. Prothro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
