FAQs for NFA Evening School



 

 

 

The number of credits and courses required for graduation depends upon the graduation requirements in place at the time you entered the ninth grade. At the time of registration, all high school counselors from NFA Main, Evening, North, and West review student records to determine the appropriate course of study for each student. Students enrolled in a day high school program are subject to the current requirements for graduation.

A student who misses three or more class meetings is considered excessively absent and may not meet requirements for earning credit. The evening high school lead administrator, guidance counselor and teacher(s) review cases of absenteeism to create intervention plans that include parent and student input.  The team comprised of the teacher, counselor, parent, and administrator, will decide whether or not credit can be awarded at the end of each quarter.

Regular day school conduct and dress requirements are in effect. Serious and/or repeated violations of school rules and regulations may be sufficient reason for disciplinary action. Smoking or possession of tobacco products is not permitted on school property or at school-sponsored events.

Any scholar is eligible to enroll in the evening program if basic or minimum requirements around core courses have been met.  For example: If this is your first year in ninth grade you are not eligible to attend evening school. If this is your second year of ninth grade you are eligible to enroll.  Counselors will review your records and determine which courses you will need to complete graduation requirements.

Yes! All evening high school students are invited to participate in the NFA graduation ceremony that is held each June. This is a popular and moving ceremony as students of all ages, wearing caps and gowns, receive their high school diplomas in front of families and friends. Join us and experience this for yourself!
Evening High School is free.  A snack is provided to students if entering the school at 2:35pm.  Dinner is also provided for those who are here at 5:30pm.
  1. Any student that does not have a schedule and has been made active in the evening campus calendar will be dropped from the calendar. 
  2. Any student beginning Jan. 31. Evening counselor MUST contact the day Counselor before a student is dropped via email, phone, or visit.  If there is a conflict within point of view, Ms. Wood will contact Dr. Spindler to determine whether or not the student will be dropped that was a no show for credit recovery (CR) courses.. They will not have enough credit hours to recover the course credit and need to register for Semester 2.  
  3. Any student who has dropped a full-year course from the day program and agreed to take this course in the evening program and is a no show MUST stay enrolled in the course. Their grade will reflect a zero until work is submitted and the students start attending class in the evening program. Counselors would be communicating around these situations and documenting parent communications in PLP. 
  4. Students can enroll in Quarterly Credit Recovery if they have failed a quarter in a course. 
  5. Students can enroll in courses as tiered support and audit the course to assist with their day program courses.
  6. If students are unenrolling in the day program and enrolling into the evening program quarter one grades will be transferred and the evening campus teacher will begin with quarter 2 grades.
  7. Some things to consider- if they have less than a 50 they should be enrolled in a full year course not CR.
