Students in CAOLA have the flexibility to work anytime day or night, weekday or weekend. In order to maintain good academic standing in the CAOLA program, students follow the daily TO DO list for each course in order to maintain a consistent pace each marking period. Each grade level and each course has uniquely designed instruction, including graded and non-graded assignments. The graded assignments appear in the TO DO list.
The CAOLA calendar follows the CDSD calendar. Days off of school for holidays do not have assignments due on those days. Students may continue to work on scheduled days off in order work ahead or catch up on assignments due.
Students may need to complete more than the minimum requirement to successfully complete the work each marking period. A benefit of working ahead is to complete the marking period ahead of time and get the next set of courses loaded right away.
