Summer 2022 Rules and Regulations

These Rules & Regulations apply to all students enrolled in a WANIC Summer Semester 2022 class:

1.       This class is equivalent to one high school semester. It runs weekdays 8:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m. for thirteen full days: Tuesday June 28 through Friday July 15, 2021. (No school Monday, July 4)

2.       If any portion of the class is taught remotely, students must have access to a computer and the Internet 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.

3.       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.

4.       Standard academic grading will be used: Students will earn grades A, B, C, D or N. No Incompletes (“I”) will be issued. A hardship Withdrawal (“W”) may be issued under specific, WANIC Director-approved circumstances.

5.       The thirteen 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 applies to ALL students, including rising-9th graders. This is state law and is not optional.

6.       College credits are not available for Summer Semester.

7.       Full daily attendance is required. The instructor will determine a daily schedule for in-person and remote learning (if applicable), student check-ins, independent study, and work submission.

8.       Students may not be absent for more than one day due to vacation, work, other school activities, sports, competitive events, personal time off, appointments, or family events. Parents/guardians must call/email WANIC office to excuse absences.​

9.       Attendance will be recorded by the instructor twice daily – once in the morning session and once in the afternoon session. Students are required to be in attendance and actively engaged in school work during both sessions each day, whether in-person or remote.

10.   This is a fast-paced class that covers a lot of material in a short time. The student must be prepared to work hard and commit to a total of approx. 60 hours of work in order to satisfy requirements to earn the 0.5 high school credit. This requires a commitment to complete all work assigned each day, between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

11.   Students and families are required to follow the COVID protocols determined by the building where the class is located, such as vaccination mandates, masking mandates, and other building-specific regulations.

12.   Regardless of location, these COVID policies apply to all Summer Semester students:

a.       If student has any illness symptom(s), they may not be in class.

b.       There are no options to access the class remotely during the in-person sessions.

c.       If a student has a single symptom that resolves within 24 hours, that student may return to class the following day.

d.       There is insufficient time for a student to address missed course content if absent multiple days. The continued realities of COVID-related protocols do not allow a student who tests positive for COVID to feasibly complete the summer semester.

e.       If a student tests positive for COVID or has any COVID-like symptom lasting more than 24 hours, they will be issued a ‘hardship withdrawal’ and be dropped from their class. A hardship withdrawal (“W”) will not negatively affect their GPA.

 

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

14.   If the student withdraws before Tuesday, June 28, there is no penalty and the class will not be reflected on the student’s high school transcript.

15.   If the student begins the class and then withdraws before the end of day Thursday, June 30, the class will be listed on the high school transcript as a Withdrawal “W” – this will not affect the student’s GPA.

16.   If the student withdraws after Friday, July 1, the class may be listed on the high school transcript with a “N” – this indicates No Credit earned.

17.   WANIC does not provide transportation. Students whose families qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch at their high school may apply for financial assistance (gas card or Orca bus pass). Email wanic@lwsd.org for more information.

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

a.       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.

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

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

d.      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.

19.   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.

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