Elementary Core Courses

 

IDLA Elementary core courses cover all grade-level standards for students who complete both Semester A and Semester B. Students receive lessons, support, and assignments from an Idaho Certified Teacher. Students may enroll in just one class or in a combination of core classes. Each course consists of a combination of synchronous sessions or “live sessions” where students will attend class with their peers and independent work that can be done at a time convenient for the student and family. Specific class times for required live sessions in ELA and Math will be listed in the course catalog. Optional live sessions for Social Studies/Science will be announced by the IDLA teacher from within the class. Live session activities will include academic lessons, social-emotional supports, team building, discussions, and teacher feedback opportunities.

Elementary students enrolled in core classes must have an adult present who has daytime availability to monitor and assist them.

Prerequisites:

  • A compatible device
  • A learning coach (parent or guardian) available to assist them
  • Students cannot be concurrently enrolled in an Elementary ELA/Math Course and Elementary Launchpad Course.

Schools utilizing IDLA course options retain their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) and at-risk funding.

Elementary ELA & Math Launchpad Courses

Launchpad courses are literacy & math intervention/enrichment courses for students in grades K-5 and are offered in a custom session only.  Wherever your students are, this program aims to launch them to higher levels of achievement and foster a love of reading and learning.  Launchpad classes are staffed by an Idaho Certified Elementary Teacher at IDLA and use the iStation intervention program.  

Students will work in iStation for 20-30 minutes per day on highly engaging, individualized lessons.  The IDLA teacher reviews progress and then meets synchronously with students for up to 5 hours a week to provide additional instruction in skills aligned to what students have learned in their independent practice time.  IDLA will work with district staff to coordinate live session times and dates.  Synchronous lessons will be aligned to student academic needs and include time for students to share with their teachers and interact with their friends.  Students in this class should expect to devote between 45-60 minutes a day to attend live sessions and complete independent practice.

Prerequisites:

  • A compatible device
  • A learning coach (school staff, parent, or guardian) available to assist them
  • If the course is a summer offering, the grade level placement in Launchpad will be the student’s grade placement during the upcoming fall semester.
  • Students cannot be concurrently enrolled in an Elementary ELA/Math Course and Elementary Launchpad Course.
