Overview

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.

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.

Interested in Online Learning?

  • Students will participate in an in-person orientation at the start of the course.
  • Building mentors are provided to help students succeed and monitor progress. Students are required to attend weekly online meetings/support sessions with the building mentor. The days and times vary by school. Please check with the school counselor regarding the schedule at your school. Students must agree to this commitment.
  • Students will take all unit exams, midterms and finals in-person, during proctored sessions. The proctored sessions will be at each high school and the schedule will be communicated to the students.
  • Students requesting an online course as part of their regular schedule to retrieve credit for a previously failed class will be scheduled on campus daily with a mentor for the online course. 
  • Are you ready for online learning? A few of the important skill sets of a successful online student include:
    • Self-motivation
    • Excellent organizational and time management skills
    • Good communications skills
    • Good technology skills and willingness to learn new technologies

How does the registration process work?

  • Print the High School Request for Outside Credit_onlinecourses_2017-18 form, complete pages one and three and submit all pages (4) to your counselor for approval.
  • The counselor will complete the form and submit it to the Online Learning Department for registration.
  • Students requesting an online course to retrieve credit for a previously failed class will be scheduled on campus daily with a mentor for the online course. 
  • The Online Learning Department (Marianne Kaluza/Audrey Winslow) will email the student confirmation of enrollment and payment information, if applicable.
