High School PVA Students and Families,


Christmas break is quickly approaching, and with that we start also looking towards the end of the semester.  To say the least, this has been a semester of change.  As of today (12/7/20), to be on target, you should have 74.4% of each class completed. (This may be different if you started PVA after the start of the school year) If you have yet to reach that point, you must set aside time throughout the coming days/weeks to get there.  Please know that you are not required to work on Edgenuity over the holiday break as those dates have been blocked out for students to be out of school. However, any work that is completed over the holiday break will only help you and help you reach your goals and target dates.  This is a perfect chance to get caught up, or even get ahead!!!


In preparation for Cumulative Exams, make sure you are working hard to stagger your exams rather than having them all take place on the last day of the semester.


IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW REGARDING SECOND SEMESTER. THIS HAS BEEN SENT OUT TWICE AND IS ALSO ON GOOGLE CLASSROOM

Understanding Grades in Edgenuity:

When a student opens Edgenuity, each class shows the “Overall Grade”.  The Overall Grade shows what each student has earned, based on what activities have been completed.  This grade does not take into consideration any assignments, quizzes, tests, or exams that have not yet been completed.  It is important to know that anything not completed by January 20, 2021, will be marked as a “ZERO”.  This will include the cumulative exam, which, in many instances accounts for 30% of the Overall Grade for the course.  ALL QUIZZES, TESTS, AND EXAMS ARE OPEN NOTE!!!  **If you are a senior, and hoping to graduate midterm, your courses must be completed by January 20, 2021. Make sure you have been communicating with Mrs. Foster to double check your progress and graduation eligibility**

At the end of the semester, we will use the “Relative Grade”.  The Relative Grade provides 0% for all activities that have not been completed.  The Actual Grade, which is also found on the Progress Report takes into account whether a student’s pace is behind. The Actual Grade reflects missing assignments that should have been completed up to this point. 

Please make sure you are meeting and/or exceeding the expectation and working a minimum of 5 hours per day on your classes. You are always welcome to work ahead, beyond the due dates of assignments. Remember, if you are significantly behind, focus on your core class (Math, English, Science, and Social Studies)

Please call or email if you have any questions or concerns as we move towards the end of the semester.. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement of the Pirate Virtual Academy.
