The Academy will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday from Thursday, November 23, through Sunday, November 26.

Online instructors and students are NOT expected to be in their online classes during this period.

NOTE: These days are NOT part of the blackout time for part-time instructor work, however, so you may choose to work and report your hours as usual on these days.

Since the Module 12 deadline falls during this break, we strongly suggest that you extend the deadline for your Module 12 topics, to allow students some extra time to complete and submit their work. (How much additional time you allow is up to you.)

NOTE: In Art Experience classes (in the Pre-College program), the Module 7 deadline also falls during this break. Be sure to set your Module 7 topics to close after the 26th.

Here's how: Simply edit your topics (course topics and global topics) and adjust the due and close dates.

  • Course Topics

     Click here to expand...

    1. Navigate to your Pending Topics page, and click the "Edit" link next to any Module 12 topic.

    2. Change the close date and due date (for assignments). Then click the "Submit" button to post your updates.

  • Global Topics

     Click here to expand...

    1. Navigate to your Global Topics page, and click the "Edit" link next to any Module 12 topic.


    2. Change the close date and due date (for assignments). Then click the "Submit" button to post your updates.

And don't forget to let your students know about this schedule change (by posting an announcement or creating an informational topic — or using whatever means you prefer to communicate important information).

Happy Thanksgiving!
