Abstract

The Online High School Program of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (BeL UADY) presented before its University Council the initiative of updating the academic-administrative scheme and that of its internal processes, after carrying out two research studies on social and educational expectations in the state of Yucatan, regarding this educational program. The proposed update was embodied in a document that presents the main current educational needs that are required from a high school program in this modality and describes the national panorama in terms of distance and virtual education. The proposal annexed relevant data on national statistics of the population requesting access to this service, responding mainly to national requirements on coverage, equality and quality in high school.

The proposed update was approved in June of 2016, granting greater flexibility to the educational program, mainly in terms of 1) decreasing the age of admission, 2) the flexibility and continuity of its admission process.

In addition to these modifications, the following were made possible: make the range of credits needed to pass a semester more flexible; restructure the distribution of grades in classes; establish a summer period to retake classes; establish different payment methods for enrollment and modify the regulation of tutors.
