At Parkview there are 10 academic/attendance months during the school year. Student work is collected for each academic/attendance month (not calendar month), and must be the work done by the student during that particular month. Student work must be turned in on or before the last day of the attendance month. The quantity and quality of student work will be verified by a certificated teacher who will then issue attendance credit for that month. Two or more incomplete assignments may result in dismissal from the program.
Curriculum is based on the California Standards.
Quality District-adopted textbooks and materials are available to each student to support a complete and comprehensive instructional program for all grades. Both consumable and non-consumable materials are checked out to each student and parent enrolled at Parkview. At the end of the school year, or when students leave Parkview, they are responsible for returning the materials to the school in good condition.
For students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade, a grade report is issued three times a year; middle school receives a grade report quarterly;. and high school students receive grades at each semester.
Standardized state testing is given to students in grades 3rd – 8th and 11th. A proctored midterm and final is given to high school students in all core academic areas. Kindergarten through 12th Grade students participate in common benchmark assessments.

Regular monthly conferences with teachers are required for all Parkview students. Day and time of monthly conferences are determined at the time of enrollment and noted on the master agreement. At conferences, parents can discuss student’s progress and clarify any questions they may have. Additional conferences are held as needed. Two missed monthly conferences will trigger reevaluation of enrollment in program and may result in being referred back to the school of residence.
