Frequently Asked Questions

What can families expect while learning in CGUHSD Online?

Students will participate in the high-level learning they are used to, but in a structured online environment using Edgenuity. The Edgenuity curriculum is grounded in research and is aligned to Arizona State Standards, the Common Core, and the NGSS. Students will be enrolled in three courses per quarter and are expected to complete six courses per semester with classes assigned based on each student’s academic graduation requirements. Families who choose this model will remain remote for the duration of the school semester.
 
Please note, elements of our plan may be subject to change based on new information and guidance from the Federal/State government and health agency partners. We will continue to share relevant updates with our community.
