Iowa Learning Online to End Services After 2019-2020 School Year

Iowa Learning Online (ILO), the Iowa Department of Education’s initiative to expand high-quality online learning opportunities, will be available for the 2019-20 school year. After that, districts will either need to create their own online classes or work with a third-party vendor. ILO will no longer directly provide courses after the 2019-20 school year because there is no long-term, sustainable funding source for operating the program.

Enrollment for summer and fall ILO courses is under way now. Also, we will be happy to work with your district regarding options for your transition to the use of Department of Education-approved private providers of online courses or to your own district-developed online courses.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your students.
