HavasuOnline Handbook

Students and families should refer to Lake Havasu High School and Thunderbolt handbooks for district policies related to each school. This document refers to procedures specific to the HavasuOnline environment.

Welcome to HavasuOnline

Lake Havasu Unified School District #1 is excited to continue to offer an exceptional online education to middle and high school students who choose the HavasuOnline platform.

HavasuOnline is a public online school program for Arizona students in grades 7 – 12. HavasuOnline utilizes the Personal Learning Platform (PLP) for content delivery. PLP provides the courses for HavasuOnline.

  • HavasuOnline students may participate in school-based activities as long as criteria for each School-based site are met.

  • Annual state testing is required for HavasuOnline students and will be taken at the LHUSD District Office. Details on times and dates will be communicated prior to testing.

  • Students must have access to a computer and the internet.  Losing internet services is not an excuse to not continue with your course work. It will be the student’s and parent’s responsibility to seek out other online services available in their area.

  • Students must meet minimum academic requirements to remain in HavasuOnline. Final recommendations will be made by the administration.

  • Students not following the overall expectations of HavasuOnline may be placed on a HavasuOnline behavior contract by administration.

  • Students will need a parent, guardian, friend to be named a learning Coach at home as a volunteer to help students with their learning and connect with our teaching staff to further create a positive experience for the student.  The Learning Coach must monitor the student’s work each week in order to keep the student engaged in the program. When students are struggling the Learning Coach will be the student’s first point of contact, and then they may ask assistance from a teacher if further clarification on an assignment or task is needed. The Learning Coach is also responsible to monitor academic honesty when reporting hours and students completing their own work.

  • Students are expected to put in the required time and understand this is an Asynchronous Educational Online program which requires the students to work independently on the majority if not all the working assignments.

  • Students attending HavasuOnline because of a long-term suspension hearing will be placed on a Hearing Officer contract. Failure to meet the requirements may result in removal from HOL.

  • Student or Learning Coach must submit accurate attendance hours each Sunday night before the next work week starts.  Failure to do so will result in all but one or two of the classes being placed on hold until attendance is completed.

  • HavasuOnline Students are required to attend/complete all State-mandated testing in person. Students that fail to participate in State testing will not be eligible to enroll in HavasuOnline for the following semester unless Administration approves a formal appeal.
