Flowing Wells Digital Campus FAQ

- What is Digital Campus?

Flowing Wells Digital Campus is the district’s virtual high school. The online learning platform offers a traditional diploma track, but on a flexible schedule. Students are enrolled in classes on-line and attend school through their Edgenuity.com account and by completing activities, lessons, and assessments. The virtual learning environment is supported by certified Teachers of Record, and a facilitation room is even offered for that personal connection to learning. All FWDC students are expected to take and pass state tests.

- How much work should I be doing?

Students must maintain a minimum average of 25 hours per week for the attendance requirement. Need a break from the lessons? Then be sure to “bank” hours the week prior. Students may not have a two-week attendance deficit. A 30-hour goal is recommended for students who are behind in credits. The Digital Campus attendance week spans Monday-Sunday, 24 hours per day. It’s learning on your schedule!

Students, logging the required hours, should complete an entire semester course every 2 – 3 weeks. When students are enrolled in two or more classes, the completion rate will be monitored every 4 weeks, when students should have two semester courses completed.

- Am I only allowed to work from home?

No! Students are required to work in the classroom (room I-1 on the FWHS campus) at least once per week, but are encouraged to work in the room whenever it is open. Ms. Stern usually has water bottles, candy, and works hard to make sure students can get whatever help or encouragement they need. Facilitation hours are Monday & Wednesday 4pm-9pm and Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday 1pm-6pm. Call Ms. Stern for more information, 520-696-8166. During the COVID-19 school closure, students cannot attend the FWDC classroom. We will notify students when it is safe to return to the live campus for learning.

- Am I allowed to play sports if I’m enrolled in DC?

Yes! Any digital campus student is eligible to play on any FWHS athletic team, as long as the student has an athletic eligibility packet on file and is meeting the weekly attendance requirements (25 hrs. per week) and is meeting the completion requirements (one semester course every 2 weeks).

- Can I hang out at FWHS when I’m not in the Digital Campus classroom?

Nope! FWDC students are not enrolled at Flowing Wells High School, and as such should not be on campus during regular school hours.
