Effective immediately, students who take American School’s online middle school courses or online high school courses created by Edmentum will have access to both semesters of their full-unit courses at the time of enrollment. Students will have 12 months from the date of enrollment to complete all coursework in both semesters, and both semesters will have the same start and end dates. This applies to new full-credit Edmentum enrollments for students in our accredited middle school program, accredited high school program or independent study program. Students should work through the coursework sequentially, but they will no longer have to wait for instructors to manually complete the first semester to gain access to the second semester. As with our paper-based middle school courses and paper-based high school courses, students will have access to all content upon course activation. We believe this change will greatly benefit our students and will give them more freedom to work at their own pace in their courses. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding, and please know how much American School staff appreciates the opportunity to serve you and your family.
