At IC Imagine we are dedicated to ensuring that all students are learning at high levels through an integrated approach to the whole child in a K-12 model by: Valuing every member of our school community; Engaging all students in Core Curriculum, Spanish, Fine Arts, and Active Living; and Encouraging students to become Leaders.
Fine Arts at IC Imagine
These guidelines are set in place to give each student the most likely chance to be successful and meet student’s individual needs.
These guidelines are intended to provide a rigorous fine arts program at all placements.
Students will be placed in the appropriate fine arts course each year using the placement criteria (see placement criteria).
Students can move from one program to another each year to fit the student’s needs.
The parent or guardian may request a higher or lower placement by submitting a waiver by the posted due date. This must be approved by the designated fine arts curriculum committee. This form is available on the IC Imagine website.
At the end of the school year, current NC Final Exam scores and final course grades will be reviewed to determine if a change in placement is necessary.
We know that many of you are not feeling comfortable with in-person instruction in August. Because of this, we have created a form for you to enroll in Virtual Learning and opt-out of in-person instruction.
Families should complete this form to enroll in Virtual (100% remote) Learning for the 2020-2021 school year by Friday 7/10/20. At this time, IC Imagine is planning to revisit all Virtual Learning decisions for all enrolled families after November 24th, 2020 (the beginning of Winter Break). If the situation improves sooner than that time (as demonstrated by COVID-19 metrics), we will review our plans and work with the families enrolled in Virtual Learning to determine the next best course of action.
We will be using the initial numbers from this enrollment form to inform our Plan A (full capacity) and Plan B (50% capacity). Each of these plans involve many elements. Due to the complicated nature of this planning we must ask that you commit to virtual learning once you have elected this option. Since the situation with COVID-19 remains fluid, we will create opportunities throughout the year for your family to choose a different option but this decision will only be revisited as we create those windows of opportunity. While we ask that you commit to virtual learning once you make the decision, you may at any time during the year switch from in-person instruction to 100% virtual learning.
If you do elect virtual learning and the school is on Plan A or Plan B, you can expect the virtual learning platform to be asynchronous with consistent opportunities to virtually check in with the teacher.
After submitting the form, you can expect to hear from the principal of your student's school closer to the start of the school year about the school level's plans.
