FAQ

What are the classes at Community School like? 
Almost all the classes are delivered via an online, blended format through a variety of platforms, such as Plato, Edgenuity, Schoology, and Glogster.  You will be scheduled into a 3-period day, either in the morning or afternoon, based upon our enrollment. Students begin with taking 3 classes.  They have one on-campus period per day of each class and are then expected to work on all of their classes at home as well.  Overall, students will be working on campus for 170 minutes per day and at home for a minimum of 90 minutes.

But what if I need help? 
There is a teacher in the room who is certified in the subject area and who will help students out as they progress.  This teacher is also available to work with the student virtually during regular school hours, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.   

I’m enrolled in an Edgenuity class at my home campus—can I finish it when I come here? 
Unfortunately, no.  Our class curriculum is different from the one at your home campus.  If you would still like credit for that class, you can finish it before enrolling here. 

Do you have busses? 
Yes.  Our busses are not part of the regular route, so we will likely need to set up a bus stop for you.  You will have to ride the bus consistently, or transportation will drop the route.  Setting up a bus stop typically takes 24-72 hours, and therefore we ask that you try to find transportation to get here until you receive confirmation of bus transportation. 

How long is it going to take me to graduate? 
We try to pace students to complete one class in 4-5 weeks. You are taking 3 classes at a time, which means you should work to complete 3 classes every 4-5 weeks. Each class is worth .5 credit.  Therefore, for example, if you needed 3 credits to graduate you could do so in approximately 8-10 weeks if you work hard. 

Ok, but how long is it going to take me to graduate? 
That’s up to you.  Students who work hard finish faster.  Students who don’t work hard take longer.  Students who miss school and don’t work daily will be at risk for not completing.

Can I still walk with my home campus at graduation? 
Yes.  You can also go to your school’s prom.  However, it is up to you to order your cap and gown and find out the information about graduation practice times and prom ticket sales. 
 
Is this a real diploma? 
Yes.  Yours is a Pasadena ISD diploma issued by your home campus and looks just like everyone else’s.
