ILO is available to all Iowa accredited public school districts, non-public schools, and dually-enrolled home school students. A student's local district makes the choice to partner with ILO and how many ILO classes a student can take.
ILO currently does not offer enrollments for a specific teacher or customized student sectioning.
Are ILO courses available to middle school students? ILO courses are designed for high school students receiving high school credit. However, middle school enrollments will be allowed at the discretion of the local school district. How credit will be transcripted is a local decision.
When enrolling a student you may receive a notice that your student has been placed on the waiting list for that course. When a course reaches capacity, students are automatically placed on a waiting list in the order in which the enrollments are received. Should a seat become available, your student will automatically be moved from the waiting list to be actively enrolled in the course and will receive a confirmation email. Additional fees may apply to enrollments made active from the waitlist*. The waiting list transfers close when the term enrollment period closes.
If you have questions about enrollment or the waiting list process, please contact the ILO Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org, 515-725-2075.
Due to an Iowa legislative appropriation in support of the scale-up of Iowa Learning Online, enrollment fees were waived for all Iowa public and accredited non-public students through the Summer 2016 term. Beginning Fall 2017, the enrollment fee will be $260. Additional fees may apply to enrollments made active from the waitlist*. If a student withdraws from a course within the first three weeks of a term, there will be no charge to the district/school. Billing will occur after this ILO withdrawal date each semester.
*The demand for ILO courses is at an all-time high. To meet this need, ILO must add additional teaching staff. Therefore, as of July 1, 2017, tuition for any enrollment made active from the waiting list will be $290 per enrollment, per semester.
Certain courses require specific supporting materials (e.g. textbooks, software) that the local school must provide. These required materials are outlined in the course descriptions.
Public schools may not pass on the costs of ILO courses to parents/guardians during the fall and spring semesters; but may do so during the summer term (Iowa Code, Section 282.6). Non-public schools may pass on the costs of ILO courses during the fall and spring semesters and also during the summer term.
Schools not requiring offer and teach services yet wishing to enroll fifteen or more students in a single Iowa Learning Online course segment will need to fill out a brief partnership planning agreement. This partnership agreement helps both your school and Iowa Learning Online plan appropriately. Prior to completing this form please contact Cale Roe email@example.com to discuss your school's unique needs.
