Seat Time Waiver Program


A seat time waiver allows for online learning options for students to continue working on a high school diploma or grade progression without physically attending at the school building. If a student and family chooses, the online coursework can be monitored in the school building. The seat time waiver can remove the days, hours, and physical attendance requirements. Students taking three or more classes online need to have a seat time waiver. L'Anse Area Schools, with the approval of the Michigan Department of Education, operates a local district seat time waiver program. This gives us the opportunity to provide a unique and individualized online learning program for our students.
