TJHSST Online Course Policy

Students may request to take one course online, off campus, during 1st period only. The following rules apply:

  • The requested course must be taken as a “capstone” course from a pre-approved list.

  • The requested course must not be used to serve as a prerequisite for a subsequent course.

  • Students are expected to remain at home or off campus during 1st period and arrive at school no earlier than 15 minutes before 2nd period. Parents are responsible for providing the necessary resources (computer, internet access, etc.) and transportation.

  • 12th grade students will have an opportunity to request an online course during 1st and/or 5th period.


Additional notes regarding “9th period” or “eighth class”

Students may only take an elective (credits not required for a diploma) outside the school day as an 8th class.

Students in grades 9-11 may opt to take Economics & Personal Finance (non-AP) via the FCPS Online Campus or via the Self-Paced option outside the school day to fulfill their EPF diploma requirement.

If students have not completed a particular diploma requirement by the start of their 12th grade year, they will be required to do so during the school day in their senior year.
