Intended Audience: Collaborative Instructors
This article pertains to courses taught by a local teacher as part of a collaborative partnership.
This article provides information for collaborative instructors who teach Advanced Placement (AP) courses as part of a partnership. AP courses taught through collaborative partnerships may differ from those taught by Michigan Virtual instructors.
AP Courses Taught by Michigan Virtual Instructors
For AP courses taught by Michigan Virtual instructors, assignments will have due dates tied to assignment completion. Late submissions will incur penalties as per Michigan Virtual's public-facing AP Policy. AP courses will not have pacing guides in the SLP. Instead, due dates will be populated directly into the course, and students will see these dates on their Brightspace Calendar tool and class homepage.
AP Courses Taught by Local Teachers through a Collaborative Partnership
For AP courses taught by local teachers through a collaborative partnership, due dates will be built into the courses, and collaborative instructors may choose to use, modify, delete or ignore them, as well as Michigan Virtual's AP Policy. While collaborative instructors are encouraged to follow Michigan Virtual's AP Policy, local policies and expectations set by the local teacher will take precedence. AP courses taught by a collaborative instructor will not have pacing guides in the SLP, and a pacing guide will be placed in the course for instructors to use at their discretion. Instructors may use the provided pacing guide as-is and share it with students, copy and edit before sharing, or choose an alternate method to communicate pacing.
