What is the difference with the course codes?
Course codes ending in even numbers (i.e. 2318) are first semester classes. Course codes ending in odd numbers (i.e. 2319) are second semester classes. Course codes are listed in the registration link. Each course is 0.5 credit.

Can I take more than one class at a time?
We recommend that students take only one online class per session since each session is one semester worth of material in three weeks' time. The work load is high and we want to ensure that students are successful. The classroom sessions are just one class per session.

What are the Physical Education (PE) online course requirements?
eLearning PE focuses more on the health aspects (components of physical education) of physical education, and has minimal information on the rules/regulations of various sports. It's essentially a health-based curriculum. There is one lesson that requires students to choose a sport and research it in depth. If students enjoy playing sports, it is recommend that they enroll in brick-and-mortar summer PE ... as all they do is play a variety of sports all day. Students are required to take a pre- and post-fitness test in-person as well as their final exam in-person. These in-person tests will be scheduled with the student's online instructor. Students are also required to log 14 hours of physical activity during the course of the three-week class.

Can I take one semester of PE now and one next summer?
Yes. Students must attend one pre-test date and one post- test date per Session. If students are completing both Sessions, they can use their Session I post-test score as their Session II pre-test score.

Can I use the computer lab at Coronado High School to complete my class online?
Yes, the Coronado High School computer lab is the only high school available this summer for open lab.

Exams

Can I take my online final exam early?
Yes, as long as all coursework is complete. Students can go to Coronado High School computer lab from between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Do I need to be in Arizona to take an online course?
No. The only time students who are taking an online class must be present in person is for their final exam. All final exams must be taken on or before the last date of each summer session—no exceptions.

Do I have to take my final exam in-person?
Yes, final exams must be taken in-person in a computer lab on one of the high school campuses. All finals must be taken before the last day of the session.

Physical Education (PE) students must take a pre and post fitness test in-person for each semester in addition to their final exam.
