Frequently Asked Questions
How are the dates determined on a student’s pacing guide?
The dates on a student’s pacing guide are based on the student’s start and end date, which can be viewed in the SLP. If a student is enrolled after the official start date, then their pacing guide will be adjusted to start on their enrollment date.
How are the dates determined on a pacing guide when viewed by a mentor or teacher?
The pacing guide defaults to the earliest start date for the course and the set number of weeks for the term. Note that mentors and teachers can adjust the dates, as necessary, to create custom pacing guides.
Do pacing guides automatically save when adjusted?
No. If you would like to save a custom pacing guide, select Print all weeks from the upper right corner and then either print or save as a PDF.
Do pacing guides account for holidays during a term?
Yes. There are days off in the pacing guide for the following holidays throughout the school year: Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Winter Break, Martin Luther King Day, Spring Break, Memorial Day.
Why can’t I find the pacing guides for Advanced Placement (AP) courses?
The pacing guides for AP courses can be found in the Getting Started folder in each course. The due dates for AP assignments can also be found in the Calendar widget on the Class Homepage, if enabled.
Do pacing guides take into account work that has already been completed?
No. Pacing guides do not adjust based on completed work in a course.
