What online program would work best to make-up or obtain credits?
There are many online course providers available for students in Washington State. Students can explore which online program would fit their needs and then submit an Appendix C form (see above) for approval of the program and course.
Where do I find a list of online programs that are approved?
The Lake Washington School District has a list of approved online programs linked to their website. You can find the link below.
Can my student take an online class instead of the one offered at ICS?
Students who opt-in and choose to come to ICS must follow our program and curriculum as is. Students cannot take an online course in place of a course we already offer here. Students are required to try our courses first before seeking outside options.
Can my student take an online course to skip a level? For example in math or foreign language?
No, because of our signature curriculum, we are not able to allow students to take classes outside of ICS to skip levels of certain subjects. See question above.
If I choose an online program that is approved by the district, do I still need to fill out the Appendix C form to have it put on my transcript?
Yes, all online courses have to be approved also through your school's administrator.
Can I use a different online program than the ones on the district-approved list?
Possibly. All approvals need to go through your school's administrator. Programs can be approved as an accredited educational option if they fit a specific outlined framework set out by the school district. Students can find out if a program is approved by submitting the Appendix C form (see above), found in your student services hallway.
