Full Service Course Extension
Students can receive a four-week extension to a Full Service IVS course. IVS requires that 50% of course assignments must be completed to be eligible for an extension.
Exceptions may be granted for a student with an educational plan (IEP/504) on file with IVS or other special exception approved by the IVS Director.
A course extension must be approved by the local school (by required signature on the extension form) and the IVS Teacher. There is a fee of $75.00 for a four-week full service course extension.
Extension invoices will be sent according to payment responsibility selected by the local school. School are billed by default. In cases where the school has chosen the option for students to pay IVS course fees directly, the student will receive the extension invoice.
Students paying IVS course fees directly to IVS ("student payment responsibility") will need to submit payment of the $75 course extension fee prior to approval of the extension. Once the IVS Teacher approves the extension, the student will be invoiced through Maestro and will have 5 days to submit payment from the date of the invoice. Electronic payment is recommended, as checks may not be received in the office by the due date.
Download and submit Request for Extension Form by week 15 of the course to ensure uninterrupted access to course content.
Steps for Completing the Course Extension Request:
