Student Agreement Form of Policies and Terms of OSD ONLINE
All students are held to the policies and standards of the Oxford School District, and students and parents will agree to the following:
- Online students are required to follow the Oxford School District Attendance Policy. Elementary student attendance will be verified by assignment submissions in math and ELA. Secondary student attendance will be verified by assignment submissions in all courses. Attendance will be verified by the teacher at the end of each week. If a student accumulates five unexcused absences he or she will be reported to the Lafayette County Truancy Officer.
- Online courses will contain the same rigor and expectations of traditional “brick-and-mortar” classrooms. Students are expected to view all instructional materials and complete all assignments. Failure to do so will adversely affect the student’s grade.
- The Oxford School District grading policy will be followed for all online learners.
- The beginning and end of each course will follow the Oxford School District Academic Calendar. Courses will not receive an extension.
- Academic integrity is expected in the completion of all Oxford School District virtual school classes. A student will receive a zero on his/her work and not have a chance to remake the assignments if found to have violated academic integrity.
- All summative tests for students in grades 1-12 will be proctored at Oxford Elementary School. Pre-k and K student assessments will be proctored at Bramlett Elementary School. Students are expected to sign up for a test time and to be punctual for their appointments. Tests can be scheduled here.
- Allow instructors up to 2 workdays to respond to student assignments and communications. Although grading is expected to be done within a two-day window from the time the item is submitted to being returned with feedback to the student, there are a few notable exceptions. Specials teachers service the entire grade, so their feedback window is larger than normal. Teachers who give projects or papers to students and anticipate needing more time to effectively grade the projects or papers will need to communicate the expected longer return time on the assignments.
- Students may NOT take more than one test per day in any one particular course.
- Students must follow the Oxford School District Acceptable Use Policy while participating in Oxford School District Online.
- If students have questions or problems in their course, they need to follow proper protocol by initially contacting the classroom teacher. If the problem is not resolved, the student can contact the principal. If the problem is still not resolved, a student may contact the virtual school coordinator.
- This document represents that minimum requirements by the district and teachers may require more for their classes.
