If a student would like to benefit from the instruction and feedback of a particular course but not do all the work associated with that course, we will, on a case-by-case basis, consider an audit option for that student. In this arrangement, the student participates in the class and submits any work (e.g., reports, papers, exams) from the regular syllabus that the family wants evaluated. The teacher will evaluate and provide feedback on any regular work submitted on time. The teacher will grade submitted items to the same standard for all students, without making special grading standards for an incomplete assignment submitted by a student auditing the class. For audit situations, the teacher will not provide a semester grade or final grade (since homeschooling families assign their own grades and generate their own transcripts, our grades serve primarily as recommendations to the family in any case). An audited class does not count as a prerequisite for a follow-on course in The Potter’s School, so a student who had audited a prerequisite course would have to pass applicable placement requirements to take a follow-on course, or would have to obtain special permission from the follow-on course’s teacher to accept the audited course as a prerequisite. Because students taking a class in an audit status may be less likely to take a follow-on course, we will accept non-audit students in priority over audit students. Auditing a course must be approved in advance by the teacher and the director. There is no reduced price for an audited course.
