 Ardmore High School & Ardmore Middle School
Virtual students must maintain good academic standing to remain in the virtual program.  This means that the virtual student must maintain passing grades in every class they are assigned.   

Ardmore secondary virtual school will be delivered using two primary platforms Google Classroom and Edmentum.  Classes that are offered using Google classroom will be on pace with an actual face-to-face class.  The lessons will be taped-delayed and posted in the classroom stream.  At the teacher's request, the student will be expected to join the class virtually on occasion for live instruction and support.  The posted assignments must be completed by the deadline dates.  Students may request support during school hours or as assigned by the instructor.

Virtual students will be expected to come to the main campus for testing on specific dates throughout the semester. 

Classes that are offered using Edmentum will be paced by the student with minimum weekly progress determined by the virtual principal.  The lessons will consist of a video presentation and /or reading content and followed by exercises and an assessment.  In order for the student to remain in good academic standing, they must maintain a passing “current” grade and progress through the course at the minimum level set by the virtual principal.

Performing Fine Arts and Athletics will be available to virtual students, however, they must physically participate in class.  There will be no virtual instruction for these classes.  All other elective classes will be offered through Edmentum and students will be expected to maintain good academic standing as explained above. 

Advanced Placement classes will not be offered through our virtual school.  Students who require advanced placement classes will need to attend the traditional school.

Students, who do not maintain good academic standing in all classes, will be dropped from the virtual program.
