So you're a student at Excel High School.
In this video, we'll give you tips
and info for success on the Excel
High School program provided by Gail.
We'll cover credits required
to graduate, transferring your
previously earned credits by submitting the
recommendations for completing your self based
and how to get support when you need it.
Let's start with some goals.
Students must take a total of 21.5
credits to graduate.
Those credits must consist of
three math, three science,
3.5 social studies and eight
elective credits including
half credit of health, a half credit
of fitness and one finer credit.
If you've earned high school credits at any point
before this, we can evaluate your transcripts
and apply those credits towards your credit total.
However, in order to graduate with Excel,
at least six of the total credits to graduate
must be earned through the Excel High School
includes one credit of English,
one credit of math, one credit of
science, one credit of social studies
and two elective credits.
We'll load these credits for you first and
then determine if you need to take any more
credits. After we receive your transcripts,
your transcript will need to be sent to us directly
from your previous school.
So we've created a special guide to
walk you through how to contact your previous school
and ask them to send us your transcript.
You can find this guide on the orientation
resources page on your learn stage account.
Once we have your transcript, we'll send
you an email to let you know we have,
we'll also load it to the document section
of your learn stage profile where you can check
for it any time.
Now, let's take a look at your courses.
You'll notice that your courses are flexible
and self paced. You can work on them
whenever and wherever you want
and you can work on one course at a time
or all of them at once.
The choice is yours.
However, you choose to work, make sure you're
using the Google Chrome browser on
your computer to ensure your course materials
When completing your assessment, you have
three attempts on quizzes and two
attempts on final exams.
This gives you a chance to review what
you missed and improve on your next attempts.
Keep in mind that you have to earn at least
a 60% on your final exam
to pass the course and earn the credit.
Be sure to log in frequently and complete
quizzes and exams regularly.
The faster you complete your work, the sooner you graduate
and you have a maximum of two years to
complete all classes for graduation.
We recommend completing 3 to 5 quizzes
each week to stay on track
and we're here to support you along the way.
Let's go over a few ways that you can
get support while completing your course work.
If you have questions about your class content
quizzes or exams, you can
reach out to the teacher of your course by going
to the canvas inbox section on the main
menu of your canvas account, starting
a message and selecting your course
after you complete and send your message. Your
teacher should respond within a few days.
If you would like more in depth support with
understanding or applying the content in your
course, you can schedule a live train,
the brain tutoring session.
Students can schedule up to 31
hour sessions each week. This is
an excellent resource and we highly recommend
giving it a try.
And lastly, if you have questions about using
learn stage or your program details,
you can submit to help desk ticket through learn
speech. Just open the help desk,
click, add, write your message
and submit it.
We'll work to respond as soon as possible.
Typically within 24 to 48
for any other assistance, you can reach out to
your Excel high school success coach.
So now you have what you need to get started.
Thanks for watching.
