Today’s blog has important information for students who take our online middle school courses and online high school courses from Edmentum. Students who enroll in full-unit Edmentum courses are enrolled in the 1st semester for six (6) months. When a student finishes the 1st semester, he or she gets access to the 2nd semester. If a student reaches the end of his or her six-month 1st semester enrollment period in of one of these Edmentum courses but still needs more time to complete the 1st semester, we will automatically extend that enrollment 30 days. We will continue to do this until the student finishes the 1st semester or has been enrolled for 12 months, whichever comes first. Any 30-day extension added to the end of the six-month 1st semester enrollment will reduce the time the student is allowed to complete the 2nd semester. The total time to complete a full-unit course remains 12 months, regardless of how long a student spends in each semester, and the total time to complete a half-unit or semester course remains 6 months. We believe this upgrade will benefit students who have made us their distance education middle school or distance education high school, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
