We would like to remind all parents/guardians that we highly recommend that your child works on Apex from home on their computer, on their phone, or at the public library, for at least 30-minutes each day. All students should have their Apex usernames and passwords either in their phone or written down. Apex classes are for credit recovery. Students should be completing at least 2 classes in Apex every quarter. Please have your child show you their progress in Apex each week. They can do this by clicking on their class percentage. You can see how many quizzes your child has taken each day in class. We highly recommend that your child complete at least 2-5 quizzes each day. Together, we can ensure that your child is successful in Apex and retrieves the optimal amount of credits. We thank you and appreciate your support.
