Note to Parents/Guardians:

On behalf of CYCA, I am pleased to welcome 
you to the 2021-22 school year! I am looking 
forward to a productive partnership with you 
to ensure our learners can achieve their 
highest potential. I recognize that in order 
to be successful in school, our learners 
need support from both the home and 
school. I believe that a strong partnership 
with you will make a great difference in your 
child’s education. As partners, we share the 
responsibility for our learner's success. I ask 
that you guide and support your child’s 
learning by ensuring that he/she:

  1. Establishes a routine to complete his/her online coursework 
  2. Strives to maintain pace in each online course
  3. Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
  4.  Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and become a life long learner that is college and/or career ready upon graduation

Maintain pace in your coursework
   Elementary and Middle School Learners:

  • Elementary and middle school students enrolled in 4 courses should strive to complete 20 assignments per week (approximately 1-2 assignments in each class per day/5 days per week). 
  • Elementary and Middle school students who are successful in achieving this goal tend to spend 20 hours per week completing coursework.

   High School Learners:

  • High school students, enrolled in 4 courses, should strive to complete at least a total of 40 assignments per week (approximately 2-3 assignments in each class per day/5 days per week).
  • High school students who are successful in achieving this goal tend to spend 30-35 hours per week completing coursework.

Maintain appropriate school attendance          

It is expected that students exhibit regular school attendance, even in an online setting. Without regular attendance and submission of assignments a student is placing his/her academic goal of passing the course, grade advancement, and earning sufficient credits required for graduation in jeopardy. In addition, Central York School District regards cyber truancy in the same manner as truancy from the traditional school.

Be mindful of course weighting

Each course has a variety of components including lessons, quizzes, projects, and tests. To be successful it is important to complete and submit all assignments to the best of your ability. Each component is assigned a weight value as follows:

  • Lessons - 20% of the total grade
  •  Quizzes - 25% of the total grade  
  •  Projects - 25% of the total grade
  • Tests - 30% of the total grade                

Communicate with the course instructor

Ways to communicate with the instructor include:

  • Using the help button within the lesson if you need help with a specific lesson question
  • Contact the teacher by telephone or email
  • Attend teacher Office Hours
