Participation and Attendance A strong personal commitment and work ethic is needed by any student who takes an online course.

Online courses follow the same semester calendar as face-to-face classes. Students are expected to keep pace with the assignment due dates set by their course instructor. Continuous communication between the student and the instructor, as well as a commitment to staying on pace with course assignments, are necessary to be successful in an online course. The date and time for the final exam will be communicated during the course by the instructor.

Technology Requirements The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District provides a Chromebook, which is sufficient for participating in most of the R7 Online Academy and Edgenuity courses. Mobile devices are not compatible with online courses. All students taking an R7 Online course must have daily internet access.
