In order to sign up for an Idaho Digital Learning course, your child must be enrolled with the local school and have completed all necessary prerequisites for the class prior to enrollment.
The site coordinator is the person at the school who helps with registration of the online class. Idaho Digital Learning does not permit students or parents to register themselves.
Credit for Idaho Digital Learning Academy is granted through the local school district. Upon completion of all course requirements, the site coordinator will notify the registrar at the school of any credits you’ve earned. These credits will be part of your childs official transcript.
Fees are $75 per class. Many school districts pay for students who take eLearning classes as a part of their normal school day. Some districts will charge a student, but refund the fee if the student successfully completes the course. The district may pass the fees on to the parent/student in overload situations when a student is enrolled more than full-time. Ask your local school districts about its fee policy. Scholarships may be available.
