IDLA will provide access to internally created online textbook content for districts and charters for the duration of the closure. This content is created to Idaho Standards and targeted at grades 7-12. The content will include lesson objectives, lesson content, videos with transcripts, and non-graded interactivities.
All IDLA content contains accessibility features including a built-in screen reader, alt-tags for all images, video/audio transcripts, closed captions, and alternate activities for students who can only use a keyboard.
Virtual Board Meetings
In conjunction with the Idaho School Boards Association (ISBA) IDLA we will be providing training material for hosting virtual board meetings.
IDLA offers flexible solutions for students wishing to complete coursework fully online. These courses are created and taught by Idaho teachers to Idaho content standards.
Flex courses offer open enrollment, and students have the ability to progress through content at their own pace. Students are added to the course quickly after registration, and can begin their course within 24 hours of signing up. Students also have the ability to test out of content they already know. IDLA Flex Course
Custom sections are tailored to support a school’s unique needs, and timelines. Created for school districts who have groups of more than 12 students enrolling in a single course, they follow the local district’s schedule. Students move through content along with their peers. Contact edaySupport@idahodigtiallearning.org for questions on custom sections for your district. IDLA Course Catalog
