Is attendance important?
Yes. The High School SOAR Program has a strict attendance policy which prohibits students from completing a course if they miss more than one day of class. Tardies are also counted against student attendance. Regardless of perfect attendance, students must be be present on the last day of class to take final exams. Students who miss more than one day of class will be dropped from the course with no refund.

There will be no exceptions made to the attendance policy, so please check for schedule conflicts before signing up. 

How much material is covered in each class?
One 3-week course is the equivalent to one semester of a high school course. Some classes are offered as one-semester courses, such as American Government, Economics, and Speech. Other classes are offered as a year-long course divided into first-semester and second-semester units, such as Geometry A and Geometry B.

Do I need to purchase my own books and/or supplies?
Textbooks are supplied to students on the first day of class. Students are required to supply a notebook, pen or pencil, and folder for each course. Special supplies, such as calculators, markers, rulers, etc., are provided by the program.

Does the American Government class include the Constitution test?
Yes.

Is Economics the same as Consumer Education?
Yes.

Is there a behavior policy?
Each student is responsible for knowledge of and compliance with the Waubonsee Community College Code of Student Conduct. Behavioral expectations will be given to students on the first day of class. Failure to comply with rules, the conduct code, or behavioral expectations may result in removal from the program without refund, referral to the Student Conduct Board and campus police, suspension, arrest, or other disciplinary action.

What do I do if my student has IEP or 504 accommodations at their current high school?
There should be no expectation that Waubonsee will meet the needs of an IEP or 504 plan, however, instructors may make simple modifications for students. The student is responsible for communicating the request to the teacher on the first day of class.
