News and Announcements

2019-2020 Online Course Information

Pope High School recommends that students only request online courses due to extenuating circumstances. Research indicates that students who are enrolled in computer assisted instruction, web-based learning, distance education, and student controlled learning programs (such as on-line classes) are not learning as successfully as students who receive direct instruction and academic support (Visible Learning; John Hattie, 2009). In addition, accelerated interventions, enrichment opportunities, and academic support are not provided with online courses. 

Enrollment in online courses is subject to approval from the school. The Curriculum office will review and account for the totality of the rigor, requirements, and demands of the student’s schedule. In addition, the student’s academic history, maturity, motivation, and executive functioning skills are considered to account for the whole student and the student’s success when considering approval.

Therefore, beginning with the Class of 2023, students will be limited to registering for one (1) total unit of online credit as part of their academic schedule for the school year (1 = .5 credit Fall semester and .5 credit Spring semester to total 1 unit of credit).  In addition, for all grade levels, online AP courses will only be reviewed for approval if the AP course being requested is not offered at Pope HS.  

If a student is requesting an additional online course (two courses), the Online Course Appeal form is required.  Appeal forms are available in the Pope School Counseling office.  The submission of the appeal provides the opportunity to explain the extenuating circumstances that present the need for enrollment in the additional course.  Appeal forms are due Friday, April 26th by 3:45 to the Pope School Counseling office.
