Elementary ELA and Math Courses

IDLA Elementary ELA and Math courses cover 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 meet each day in “live sessions” to learn together in a virtual classroom.  This synchronous time together will include academic lessons, social-emotional supports, team building, discussions, and teacher feedback opportunities.  In addition to grade-level standards, students also receive intervention and enrichment opportunities. 

Students will practice skills independently using an online curriculum with lessons that are customized to meet student needs. This structure allows each student to move at his or her own pace.  Please note that live virtual classroom times are scheduled during typical school day hours. Students must have an adult present who has daytime availability to monitor and assist them.  Students in this class should expect to devote between 90-120 minutes a day to attend live sessions and complete independent practice.

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:
