Students who enroll in Pinnacle Charter Schools must have a working knowledge of the English language and must have successfully completed the fifth grade. Pinnacle Charter Schools will provide all necessary course materials including access to online course(s), electronic text books, and course required resources, with the exception of general school materials including such things as pens, pencils, paper, and other easily obtainable household items. Pinnacle Charter Schools will also provide student services, academic advisement, examination services (where applicable for AZ students), transcript verification services, and a Pinnacle High School diploma, upon successful completion of necessary graduation requirements. Pinnacle does not provide a computer or internet access; those items are the responsibility of the student. Students must complete course work in a prescribed time frame to earn credit.
The main method of contact between Pinnacle Charter Schools and students, who enroll in our program, as well as their parents, is email. Students must have an operable email account in order to enroll with Pinnacle Charter Schools. They must also agree to regularly check their email, as teachers and administrators will send communications related to course work, course progress, grades, assignments, or other related school business to the student's email account. Parents may also receive periodic communications via email from Pinnacle Charter Schools staff and administration.

Student Engagement Policy
Because consistent engagement in a course facilitates successful completion, Pinnacle has established the Student Engagement Policy. Students are required to log-on to their course no less than once every three days. Failing to engage in course work for 10 days or more will result in the student automatically being dropped from the course. Should a student be dropped from a course due to their failure to engage in a timely manner, no refund will be offered.
Harassment or Bullying Policy
Discrimination, bullying or harassment on the basis of sex, race/color/national origin, and disability towards teachers, staff or other students is a zero tolerance behavior and will result in disciplinary action.
