ASU Prep Digital is committed to the well-being and success of our students both in and out of the classroom. Many students face significant stressors in their lives, which can interfere with personal and academic goals. For some, this can result in thoughts of self-harm or suicide.

We understand that it can be difficult to know when to be concerned about yourself or a peer. While it may look or feel different for everyone, please click here for signs to look out for that may indicate distress or significant emotional concern.

If you or a peer need help, it is important you know there are steps you can take and you don’t have to go through this alone. Find a list of resources below and if you aren’t comfortable reaching out for professional help yet, please know your parents, teachers, and learning success coaches are here to support you.

  • Crisis Response Network is an Arizona-based non-profit organization dedicated to connecting individuals to the help they need. Their Find Help tool can be used to learn more about their services, read personal stories, and find facts on mental health.

Stress and Balance

Stress is a natural part of life.  We experience stress in varying degrees daily.  Getting a handle on stress helps to create balance.  Some signs of balance include:

  • Mindfulness: Living in the present moment rather than worrying about the past or the future
  • Time management: Making good use of your time so that you attend to the important priorities in your life
  • Regulating emotions: Recognizing and expressing your emotions in constructive ways
  • Prioritizing sleep: Setting an effective sleep routine so that you get enough sleep to rest your body and mind daily
  • Coping: Skill in finding constructive ways to manage challenging situations
  • Relaxation: Ability to bring the body and mind to a calm state of being

The Student Attendance function is NOW ready for use under the Parent/Guardian’s account in Maestro.

Instructional Video: https://player.vimeo.com/video/354907509

Each week, parents and guardians are required to submit their child’s weekly attendance.

The state-mandated expectation is that full-time students will spend a minimum of 30 hours (or 5 hours per course) each week working on their digital coursework. Attendance for part-time students will relate to the number of courses they are enrolled in (5 hours per course).

We recommend that you submit student attendance starting from the previous Saturday through Friday of each week.

Parents and guardians must enter the minimum of 30 hours in multiple days of the week (these entries should be divided up between Monday through Friday).

The amount of hours spent each day on coursework is still determined by the student’s family, but for example, the 30 hours of attendance could be entered as:

  • a) 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday
  • b) 10 hours per day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
  • c) 8 hours per day on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and 6 hours on Thursday

As can be seen above, the specific schedule is up to the parent or guardian, but on any given day, the entry cannot exceed 24 hours in one day.

How to log hours of attendance in the Parent Portal:

Log into the Parent Portal at https://learn.asuprepdigital.org and follow the instructions below:

  1. Click on your child’s name in the menu on the left side of the page
  2. A list will appear under your child’s name
  3. Select “Attendance” from the list
  4. Click on the appropriate days (Saturday through Friday) from the Calendar
  5. Input actual attendance to the nearest .5 hour in the ‘External Hours’ box
  6. Select “Log Times” when finished
  7. Repeat this for every child you have enrolled

If you have any questions, please contact our Attendance Coordinator: Angela Nadeau – Angela.Nadeau@asu.edu or 480-378-6552.

McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 2001

Information for Parents:

If your family lives in any of the following situations:

  • In a shelter, motel, vehicle, or campground
  • On the street
  • In an abandoned building, trailer, or other inadequate accommodations, or
  • Doubled up with friends or relatives because you cannot find or afford housing

Then, your preschool-aged and school-aged children have certain rights or protections under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act.

Your children have the right to:

  • Go to school, no matter where you live or how long you have lived there. They must be given access to the same public education, including preschool education, provided to other children.
  • Continue in the school they attended before you became homeless or the school they last attended, if that is your choice and is feasible. If a school sends your child to a school other than the one you request, the school must provide you with a written explanation and offer you the right to appeal the decision.
  • Receive transportation to the school they attended before your family became homeless or the school they last attended, if you or a guardian request such transportation.
  • Attend a school and participate in school programs with children who are not homeless. Children cannot be separated from the regular school program because they are homeless.
  • Enroll in school without giving a permanent address. Schools cannot require proof of residency that might prevent or delay school enrollment.
  • Enroll and attend classes while the school arranges for the transfer of school and immunization records or any other documents required for enrollment.
  • Enroll and attend classes in the school of your choice even while the school and you seek to resolve a dispute over enrolling your children.
  • Receive the same special programs and services, if needed, as provided to all other children served in these programs.
  • Receive transportation to school and to school programs.

When you move, you should do the following:

  • Contact the school district’s liaison for homeless education (see phone number below) for help in enrolling your child in a new school or arranging for your child to continue in his or her former school. (Or, someone at a shelter, social services office, or the school can direct you to the person you need to contact.)
  • Contact the school and provide any information you think will assist the teachers in helping your child adjust to new circumstances.
  • Ask the local liaison for homeless education, the shelter provider, or a social worker for assistance with clothing and supplies, if needed.
