    Procedure Online Learning

    File: 2024P

    The Lake Washington School District Board of Directors believes that a variety of learning options, including online courses, are critical for 21st Century learners. The board recognizes that the online learning environment provides students with unique opportunities to become self-disciplined learners with life-long learning skills. Further, the board believes that online learning provides tremendous opportunities for students to access curriculum and specialized courses in a flexible learning environment that might not otherwise be available. 

    Therefore, the board supports a range of online learning opportunities that are equally accessible to all high school students in the school district. The board directs the superintendent to provide information to parents, students, and staff regarding online learning options and the guidelines for participation. 

    The superintendent or designee will develop procedures to implement this policy. The procedures will include, but not be limited to, a description of student access to online learning courses, student eligibility criteria, the types of online courses available to students, methods the district will use to support student success, payment of course fees and other costs, granting of course credit, and conditions under which no credit will be awarded.
