Seat Time Waiver Program
The State of Michigan has launched the choice for parents, under Section 21f of the State School Aid Act, to request that their student(s), in grades 5-12, be enrolled in no more than two (2) online courses in place of a currently scheduled course. Huron Valley will provide students opportunities to participate in Michigan Virtual University online courses through the 21f guidelines.
The Section 21f option will be available starting second semester of the current 2013-14 school year. Parents should carefully consider the unique qualities of their child when investigating if an online class is right for them. These factors include:
Can your student create and maintain a study schedule without face-to-face interaction of a teacher?
Can your student self-advocate seeking help within a virtual setting?
Does your student possess the independent study habits needed to complete an entire course online without direct supervision?
Does your student have the reading, writing, math, and computer literacy skills to succeed in a class that is completely online?
Additional information is contained with the Parent Guide to Online Learning
It is important to note that this option is limited to choices available from the online classes that are listed within the state online course catalog (https://micourses.org ). While all of these classes have been reviewed from each sponsoring local district, these courses may not necessarily meet the rigor of courses for Huron Valley Schools from a credit or graduation requirement perspective and are, therefore, subject to administrative approval. Additionally, availability of courses is not guaranteed. Courses may have a class size limit, and should that limit be exceeded, students will be placed into the course on a lottery basis.
Should you request that your child participate in the online class experience please note the following:
The highly qualified teacher providing content for the course will only be available remotely via email or possibly phone and will not be a Huron Valley Schools employee.
Students will work independently outside of the traditional classroom setting and will not be present with their current teacher or classmates during that subject.
Changes to the existing students schedule could be made.
Should you have any additional questions about online learning opportunities or would like to further discuss the online option, please contact your child's counselor.
