Hope High School Online: Important Testing Information

*** Testing schedules are subject to change depending on state assessment requirements.***

HHSO facilitates and administers a variety of assessments each school year.  Below is a brief description of each type of assessment:

ACT Aspire - 9th grade

ACT and AzSCI - 11th grade

The ACT assessment can be used to meet college entrance requirements. Taking the ACT outside of the ACT state assessment does not satisfy Arizona state requirements. 

***State assessments are required to be proctored in person by Blueprint Education employees only. This may require travel to testing locations. While every attempt is made to establish testing sites within 1.5 hours of students’ homes, some sites might require additional travel time to and from testing locations.*** 

*** The results from the Fall assessments will be used to assess student needs and provide individual academic interventions if necessary. We strive to prepare all students to be ready for state assessments. The information from the Winter assessments indicates readiness and identifies possible learning gaps. *** 

Passing Score:

Graduating Class of 2027 & 2026 - 70%

Graduating Class of 2025 & 2024 - 60%

Hope High School Online Policies and Procedures

Students who are withdrawn by a staff member for not adhering to HHSO Policy will not be cleared for re-enrollment into HHSO for a 7 week time period following withdrawal.

Assignments, Unit Tests and Exams

All course assignments must be completed prior to final grades being issued. 

Zero Policy 

Students who turn in blank or unreadable documents for assignments will be given two opportunities to correctly complete the assignment based on teacher feedback. Upon the third submission of a blank or unreadable document, students will earn a zero on the assignment. 


The pre-testing setting is reserved for credit recovery courses only. Please do not ask your coach or teacher to turn this setting on for your non-credit recovery courses. 

Unit Tests

Every course consists of unit/topic tests.  If a student scores less than 60% on a unit test, the student will be stopped so the teacher can determine what interventions are necessary. Teachers will require students to take the test again. Retakes must be taken within 3 business days of the original attempt. 

Final Exams

Every course contains midterm/final/cumulative exams that must be proctored by a Hope High School Online staff memberStudents must score a 60% or greater on the final test/cumulative exam to pass the course. Additional review will be required by the teacher to retake a final test/cumulative exam. Retakes must be taken within 5 business days of the original attempt. Students must complete their final project/cumulative exam within 3 business days of finishing their coursework.  It is recommended that students schedule their exam as they are nearing the end of the course. 

Once a test or exam has been started, it is subject to grading. No "split" or "continued" exam sessions are allowed. Students may not use course notes, textbooks, workbooks, manuals, or electronic devices to assist them in the completion of an exam unless teacher approved, noted on the exam or proctor guideline sheet. Outside calculators are not permitted during exams unless approved by the teacher. If a test or exam requires a calculator, it will be provided within the test or exam tools.

Instruction 2.0

Instruction 2.0 assignments were designed by HHSO teachers to help students better understand the Edgenuity content and to help prepare for State testing. These assignments are designed to be more engaging and interactive for students, they also encourage discussion and collaboration between students and teachers. If you have questions, be sure to reach out to the course teacher! For more information take a peek at the Instruction 2.0 explainer video by clicking the link here. 


Students have two options for testing. : 1) HHSO Office or 2) Online Proctoring with a HHSO staff member. Prior to testing, students are required to submit an Exam Request Form. Your exam time is not approved until you have received a confirmation email (Please be aware, this process can take up to 24 business hours). Do not show up at your testing location before you have received this confirmation.

Automatic Course Failure: 

Grading Scale: All courses will consist of multiple unit tests and 1-2 final/cumulative exams. The grading scale will vary by course, but the final exam will always count as at least 30% of the final grade.

Exceptional Student Services

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act – IDEA CHILD FIND 

Blueprint Education, on an annual basis, creates public awareness of special education opportunities and advises parents of the rights of children with disabilities. Through Child Find, the district attempts to locate, identify, and evaluate preschool through 12th-grade students residing within the district boundaries, or enrolled in the online high school, who are suspected as having a disability. This includes children who are homeless, migrant children/highly mobile, and children who are wards of the state. The district will ensure that district staff and the general public are informed of: 

Child Study Team

Blueprint Education refers students that are struggling to make progress in the general education curriculum to the Child Study Team, as part of the district’s multi-tiered intervention system.  The Child Study Team (CST) meets to review and discuss student present levels and area(s) of concern, develop and implement an intervention plan, and monitor the student’s response to interventions.  The Child Study Team may refer a student to a multidisciplinary evaluation team for a special education education evaluation if the student does not respond to interventions and there is a suspect educational disability.  

Multidisciplinary Evaluation Process 

The evaluation process identifies the presence of possible educational disabilities and evaluates the impact of the disability on learning. A multidisciplinary team is formed to review the existing information for the student’s functional and academic performance. At the end of this review, the team determines if additional data is needed for educational decision making. Assessments are completed within sixty (60) calendar days of a parent’s informed written consent. The multidisciplinary team will review existing and new information from evaluation to determine if the student meets the criteria as a student with an educational disability and shows the need for specially designed services. 

Individualized Education Plan (IEP)  

The Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is both a process and a written document whereby teams develop a written plan for a student with disabilities, monitor the student’s educational progress, and make needed changes in the student’s program as circumstances change. An IEP must be based on the individual needs of the student, must enable the student to receive educational benefit, and must meet state educational standards.  Blueprint Education shall ensure that an IEP is developed and implemented for each eligible child served by the district and for each eligible child placed in or referred to a private school or facility by the district.  

Special Education Services

Hope High School Online provides special education services through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The enrolling student (parent/guardian if applicable) acknowledges their responsibility to give Hope High School Online a copy of the most recent IEP during the enrollment process.

Hope High School Online requires an increased level of independence which exceeds that of the traditional school setting. Students in the online setting will work independently from home on their classes, with classroom instruction provided through video tutorials.  By signing this document, the enrolled or enrolling student (parents/guardian if applicable) who is receiving or may need special education services realizes that special education services are offered by appointment via webcam or phone, according to the least restrictive environment as determined by the IEP team. 

If the need arises for a change in special education services and/or placement, due to supportive data (e.g. Response to Intervention, attendance, participation in special education services, grades),  the IEP team may consider other placements within the continuum of services as offered by Blueprint Education District in order to best meet the student’s needs. This may include the student being placed at Hope High School’s physical campus if deemed necessary by the IEP team in order for the student to make adequate progress in the general education curriculum.  

For additional information, refer to the following documents:

IDEA Procedural Safeguards (English)

IDEA Procedural Safeguards (Spanish)

Blueprint Education’s Board Approved Special Education Policies

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 

Additionally, Blueprint Education provides support to students who are eligible under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 according to the 504 plan developed by the team including the parent and the student.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a civil rights law designed to eliminate discrimination based on disability. Section 504 requires the provision of appropriate educational services: services that are designed to meet the individual needs of qualified students to the same extent that the needs of students without a disability are met. Essentially, Section 504 was designed to “level the playing field,” to ensure full participation by individuals with disabilities.  

To qualify under Section 504, a student must: 

Section 504 ensures that a qualified child with a disability has equal access to education. The child may receive appropriate accommodations tailored to the child’s individual needs. During the process of determining evaluation, eligibility, or the implementation of your student’s Section 504 Plan, if there is a disagreement without resolution at the school level, please be advised that there is a district appeal process you can initiate.  Blueprint Education pledges that the district complies with Section 504 regulations and no discrimination based on disability is permitted. If you believe discrimination has occurred against your student, please contact your school principal or District Section 504 Coordinator. 

Refer to your Parent’s Rights and Safeguards

Academic Progress and Updates

Student progress can be tracked in Edgenuity and/or Genius. You can expect to find current course information in reference to student progress and grades. 

For a detailed outline of what is required to stay on track in their course, students should contact their Coach. HHSO will monitor academic progress and attendance to ensure students stay on track for course completion.

As a full-time school, students are expected to complete a minimum of 11 courses per school year to stay on track for graduation. Failure to progress may result in the students being placed on a contract.

Attendance Policy

Attendance is required of each student at HHSO. The minimum attendance requirement is set by the state government and /or the Arizona Department of Education. It is subject to change at any time. Failure to progress in courses or frequent absences may lead to withdrawal.

The Expectations


Failure to log into courses

Missing Hours

Banked Hours

An example of this could look like: Jack Sparrow worked 30 hours in a week, accumulating 5 hours of banked time. The next week, Jack got sick and missed 1 day of school and was only able to meet 20 hours of attendance. Instead of gaining 5 hours of absences his banked hours were applied to his absences. Jack continues to work more than the expected time to accrue further banked hours. 

***Banked hours do not excuse inadequate progress. Students are still expected to maintain consistent and appropriate progress to complete their classes in time.***

Rejected Hours

***Documented proof of extenuating circumstances is required for consideration of waiving the consequences of missing attendance.

Please be aware that documented proof does not excuse missing hours, as all missing hours can be made up. Extenuating circumstances can include death of a family member, long term illness, etc..***


A student may be placed on a contract for one of the following reasons:

The following steps will be taken prior to placing a student on contract:

The point of contracts is to confirm HHSO’s support of students in becoming more successful in their courses, while also allowing students to confirm their commitment to HHSO. Contract parameters will be set by the HHSO team.  When a student is placed on a contract, the student and guardian will be required to respond that they understand the terms to the assigned staff member.” Contract activates as soon as it’s sent with or without acknowledgement from student/parent. 


Students who anticipate graduating in May must have completed their courses(s) to meet graduation requirements with a final grade no later than the Friday prior to graduation. If the deadline is missed, grades may not be processed in time for graduation.

Hope High School Online students must meet the minimum graduation requirements for high school graduation as defined by The Arizona State Board of Education. This includes passing the Arizona Civics Test and completing the online CPR Module. If the student has a valid CPR certification card please email a picture of the front and back to your HHSO coach, this can be accepted in place of the online CPR module. 

Please click the link to see sample diploma plan options here.

We offer students a choice between a standard or college prep diploma. Both diplomas require a minimum of 22 credits as listed below. In addition, the College prep diploma also requires a minimum of 15 volunteer hours per year while attending HHSO.

Standard diploma requirements for HHSO graduates are listed below:

College prep diploma requirements for HHSO graduates are listed below:

25% Diploma Rule

- In accordance with AdvancED Distance Learning policies, 25% percent of the course curricular requirements shall be completed with Hope High School Online or another Blueprint Education AdvancED Accredited School.

- Any exceptions to the 25% Policy must be approved by the principal or his or her designee and the Blueprint Leadership Team. Please be aware that if your exception is approved, Hope High School Online will not grant a diploma to students who take fewer than the equivalent of one semester. (i.e. 6 courses) It is the intention of HHSO to fully understand the academic merits of all students in which the school grants a diploma. This minimum course completion requirement enforces the academic integrity of the school.

Summer Session

A summer break (June and July) is reserved for those students who have completed their current courses. However, students are more than welcome to work through the summer to catch up or move ahead in their academic plan. Courses carried into the summer session will have to be completed prior to the start of the new school year.

Extension Policy

Important Note:

     HHSO’s Stance on Artificial Intelligence Programs

At Hope High School Online we pride ourselves in our ability to be Agile and adapt in changing environments. Being an entirely online school, HHSO is committed to being among the best schools in implementing new technologies. When Covid-19 changed the landscape of education, HHSO was uniquely situated to overcome the new challenges that traditional schools were not prepared for in an online environment. AI platforms are similarly changing the landscape of education once again. While we continue to learn about the positives and negatives of these new AI programs, the following policy will be implemented for the 2023-2024 school year.

    What You Should Know?

Artificial Intelligence language models have now grown capable to write essays, emails, speak conversationally, and help with nearly any writing situation that relies on language based patterns. It is increasingly more important for students to learn how to use these platforms with academic integrity. As a school we are building learning opportunities into our curriculum to help students in the following situations:

There are some limitations with using AI models and students should be aware of the following:

Our Core Principles for Using Artificial Intelligence

As we learn with AI platforms, there are two principles we use to guide our class policy on AI use:

Cognitive dimension: Working with AI should not reduce your ability to think clearly. We will practice using AI to facilitate—rather than hinder—learning. 

Ethical dimension: Students using AI should be transparent about their use and make sure it aligns with academic integrity. 

Academic Integrity When Using Artificial Intelligence

With those principles in mind, here are some policies that will be enforced in our course:

As AI tools become increasingly embedded in existing technologies, students will enter gray areas that don’t obviously align with the policies above. If a student is unsure of whether and how much of a submission has been AI-generated, or whether they are in violation of a certain policy, they should reach out to the instructor and ask for guidance.

Digital Citizenship

HHSO challenges our students to develop their digital citizenship skills based on ISTE’s 5 core competencies.


Be open to hearing and respectfully recognizing multiple viewpoints, and engage with others online with respect and empathy. Engaging with staff and students online should be respectful always seeking to understand one another. 


Evaluate the accuracy, perspective, and validity of digital media and social posts. Ensure that the information you report is accurate and from reliable sources. 


Use technology and digital channels for civic engagement, to solve problems and be a force for good in both physical and virtual communities.


Make informed decisions about how to prioritize time and activities online and off. Make sure to schedule breaks when working through courses. Developing a daily schedule is encouraged and creates balance while ensuring productivity and progress toward graduation.


Be aware of online actions, and know how to be safe and create safe spaces for others online. Always be vigilant about online safety. Ensure that communication is appropriate and reported to a staff member immediately should there be inappropriate communication.


Hope High School Online is committed to ensuring every student’s right to be educated in a safe, positive, caring, and respectful environment by enforcing an anti-bullying policy. To assist in creating this environment and enable students’ use of technology in a safe and responsible manner, bullying, harassment or intimidation as defined by this policy will not be tolerated.

What is Cyberbullying?

Cyberbullying is, but not limited to, any act of bullying committed by the use of electronic technology or electronic communication devices, including telephonic devices, social networking and other Internet communications. These actions can take place on personal or school computers, networks, forums and mailing lists, or other school owned property, and by means of an individual’s personal electronic media and equipment.

Examples of Cyberbullying

Posting comments, messages, photos or screenshots that are mean, threatening, untrue, personal, secret or embarrassing anonymous messages or abuse (on social networks or online gaming), filming or taking photos of someone without their knowledge and/or consent; this includes sharing photos or videos ‘Indirect’ messages or comments where an individual is not directly named, but their identity is insinuated, fake accounts or profiles excluding people from online conversations or doxing over online gaming messages that encourage self harm or suicide harassment based on race, gender, sexual preference, financial status, etc.

For more information on cyberbullying go to the US Government bullying website:



Students and parents are encouraged to immediately report bullying or harassment to the student's academic coach.

School officials are required to follow procedures to investigate a student bullying claim and resolve the incidents with appropriate sanctions.


Hope High School Online integrates cyberbullying prevention into relevant policies and practices, ensures reporting routes are accessible and visible, and promotes the positive use of technology. 

Students and parents are prohibited from bullying on school property, at school sponsored events and activities and through the use of electronic technology including but not limited to electronic communication equipment, on school or personal computers, school or social networks, forums, telephone or mailings.

Staff at Hope High School Online undergo training which includes understanding, preventing, and responding to cyberbullying.


Due to the behaviors occurring through digital devices, the act of cyberbullying may not be recognizable because teachers and/or parents may not have the ability to overhear or see the act take place. Since Hope High School Online is based in an electronic setting, the identity of the offender could be unknown, school officials will initiate steps to identify the person responsible. These can include but are not limited to investigating all school systems and computer logs, identifying and interviewing possible witnesses, and with police involvement, obtaining user information from the internet service provider. Disciplinary action may result from cyberbullying which occurs outside of the school parameters. All suspected violations of law will be reported to local law enforcement. For more information on Arizona’s bullying laws (which include cyberbullying) please visit:


Unintended consequences

With shared content via digital forums, the subject matter becomes public and may be permanent, if not reported and removed. This content may be available and viewed by strangers and others who are not the victims of the cyberbullying act. This can create a type of permanent record, also known as “online reputation”, which can be accessible to schools, employers, and others researching an individual now or in the future. Cyberbullying can also be very harmful not only to the victim of bullying but the individual participating in the act.

Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP)

As part of the journey here at Hope High School Online, we want to ensure our students gain the understanding and necessary resources that will help guide them in their life after high school. Thus, preparing our students for their future career and educational goals, students will be completing an Education and Career Action Plan (ECAP).  

An ECAP reflects a student’s current plan of coursework, career aspirations, and extended learning opportunities in order to develop individual academic and career goals. By following a series of assessments and activities geared to provide additional support to meet their individual needs, students will be able to better understand themselves and their postsecondary goals.

Hope High School Online uses Major Clarity to assist students with developing their ECAP.Through this, students will gain access to various resources that will guide them in their future. This process is outlined on our Student Portal with step by step directions as to how to navigate each assessment and activity. Upon enrollment, each student will be given directions as to how to begin their ECAP. Throughout the student’s time here at HHSO, the Academic Coaches and the School Counselor will be working one-on-one with students to help develop individualized plans for after high school. Therefore, the ECAP will be utilized consistently to ensure students are given any information or resources necessary to make their future goals come alive.

Whether a student wishes to Enlist, Employ, Enroll or Explore, we have what you need to plan! Check out our College & Career Center for more interactive tools. For more information or to get started on your ECAP, please start HERE

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's educational records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students." 

Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's educational records maintained by the school within 45 days of a request made to the school administrator Schools are not required to provide copies of records unless it is impossible for parents or eligible students to review the records without copies. Schools may charge a fee for copies. 

Parents or eligible students have the right to request in writing that a school correct records that they believe to be inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student then has the right to a formal hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement with the record setting forth his or her view about the contested information. 

Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's educational record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions: 

School officials with legitimate educational interest: 

1. A school official is a person employed or contracted by the school to serve as an administrator, supervisor, teacher, or support staff member (including health staff, law enforcement personnel, attorney, auditor, or other similar roles); a person serving on the school board; or a parent or student serving on an official committee or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks; 

2. A legitimate educational interest means the review of records is necessary to fulfill a professional responsibility for the school: 

- Other schools to which a student is seeking to enroll

Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, sports participation (including height and weight of athletes) and dates of attendance unless notified by the parents or eligible student that the school is not to disclose the information without consent. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that protects the rights of students with disabilities. In addition to standard school records, for children with disabilities education records could include evaluation and testing materials, medical and health information, Individualized Education Programs and related notices and consents, progress reports, materials related to disciplinary actions, and mediation agreements. Such information is gathered from a number of sources, including the student's parents and staff of the school of attendance. Also, with parental permission, information may be gathered from additional pertinent sources, such as doctors and other health care providers. This information is collected to assure the child is identified, evaluated, and provided a Free Appropriate Public Education in accordance with state and federal special education laws. Each agency participating under Part B of IDEA must assure that at all stages of gathering, storing, retaining and disclosing education records to third parties that it complies with the federal confidentiality laws. In addition, the destruction of any education records of a child with a disability must be in accordance with IDEA regulatory requirements.
