Online Learning is a growing part of the education landscape, and the Issaquah School District is developing new strategies for students to take advantage of flexible learning opportunities. Voters approved Tech Levy funds in February 2010 which are helping us expand our options for students.
With the approval of our new Online Learning policy and procedures in August 2010, we are now participating in the OSPI Digital Learning Department (DLD) program which offers OSPI-approved online courses.
Existing district policies apply for all Online Learning opportunities (registration, drop policy, academic integrity, discipline, technology use, etc.) OSPI approved online courses are granted credit in the same manner as other course offerings in the district. Students are also expected to comply with the OSPI DLD and Online Course Provider policies.
Are you ready for Online Learning?
The quizzes and surveys
available on the OSPI DLD website will give you a clearer picture of what it is like to be an online student. Online courses are rigorous and require a time commitment similar to your regular courses.
What are your options?
Various options are available for high school or middle school students interested in a course that is not offered at their school, does not fit in their schedule or is approved by the principal for good cause.
- OSPI approved Online Courses
- Community or Technical College Online Courses. More information...
- Online Courses not approved by OSPI. More information...
Note: Beginning with school year 2011-2012, these courses will not be eligible for credit from the District. (This includes BYU online courses—they are not approved by OSPI and will not be accepted by the Issaquah School District.) Only online courses approved by OSPI or Community and Technical Colleges will be eligible for credit from the district unless an exception is approved by the district and principal for good cause.
How do you proceed?
Submit a signed Request for Outside Credit form to your counselor. Once approved by the counselor, the principal must approve the request in order for registration to proceed. The counselor will notify the Online Learning Coordinator who will collect payment, if required, and register you in the course.
