Exactly how long online students should spend to master the skills of a typical semester course is a contentious issue among Arizona educators. Researchers have not yet found an answer. In a typical face-to-face school, the state requires full-time high-school students to attend 720 hours of instruction, which is typically provided in a 180-day school year. Traditional schools must present the state with a calendar of instruction days and regularly report student absences. State law says a student who is absent without an excuse for 10 consecutive days must be withdrawn from the school’s enrollment.
