Summer 2020 Rules and Regulations

By submitting an application to WANIC Summer Semester, you understand and agree to the following:

  • This is a fast-paced online class, equivalent to one semester in a two week time period.

  • Daily online attendance required Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM July 6 - July 17. The instructor will determine a daily schedule for online learning, student check-ins, independent study, and work submission.

  • The student must be prepared to commit to a total of approximately 60 hours of online and independent work in order to satisfy requirements to earn the 0.5 high school credit.

  • Students must have a computer and Internet access for the duration of the class. WANIC does not have laptops for students – check with your home high school or district who may be able to provide a laptop. Note: For the Microsoft IT Academy class, students must have access to Office 365/2016 on their device. 

  • Only students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade in the Fall of 2020 and registered in a public high school in Bellevue, Everett, Issaquah, Lake Washington, Mercer Island, Northshore, Riverview, or Snoqualmie Valley School District are eligible for a WANIC Summer Semester class. Home school and private school students must register with their local public high school. Out-of-consortium students will not be accepted for WANIC Summer Semester. 

  • Submitting an application is not a guarantee of enrollment. WANIC will email the student and parent/guardian if the student gets enrolled in the program. Please add wanic@lwsd.org as a contact to ensure our emails are not blocked. Also, check your junk/spam folders frequently for WANIC emails. 

  • If plans change and the student is no longer able to attend WANIC Summer Semester, the parent/guardian must email WANIC immediately to withdraw the application. 

  • Standard academic grading will be used: Students will earn grades A, B, C, D or F. 

  • The ten full school days of Summer Semester is equivalent to a high school semester (0.5 credit). This class will be listed on the student’s official high school transcript along with the credit and grade earned, which will affect GPA. This is state law and is not optional. 

  • College credits are not available for Summer Semester.  

  • If enrolled, the student must complete the entire program and satisfy all academic requirements to earn credit for the class. 

  • If the student withdraws before Monday, July 6, there is no penalty and the class will not be reflected on the student’s high school transcript. 

  • If the student begins the class and then withdraws before the end of day Wednesday, July 8, the class will be listed on the high school transcript with a “W” – this will not affect the student’s GPA. 

  • If the student withdraws after Wednesday, July 8, the class may be listed on the high school transcript with a “F” – this will negatively affect the student’s GPA. 

  • All school district rules and expectations apply, including these computer code of conduct regulations: 

  • Be ethical and courteous. Do not send hate, harassing, or obscene mail, text or images; libelous, scandalous or discriminatory remarks; or demonstrate other antisocial behaviors. Such communications may be subject to school discipline, legal action, and/or police contact.  

  • While actively engaging in the online class, use the time for educational purposes only. No personal, commercial or political activity is allowed. 

  • Protect your account and computing privileges. Never share your logon and password information with other students. Never use others’ logon or password. 

  • Do your own work. Only submit original work and do not plagiarize the work of others. Do not assume that because something is on the Internet you can copy it. 

  • All policies and procedures of the WANIC Skill Center for student conduct and discipline will be in effect. If a student is removed from the Summer Semester class as a result of academic integrity violations or disciplinary action, the student may not earn credit. 

  • Please direct all questions to the WANIC Skill Center office (425) 739-8400 or wanic@lwsd.org.
