Utilizing hands-on instructional resources, teachers interweave technology, art, character education, and physical fitness to provide a well-rounded core curriculum. As we focus on mastery-based learning and give chances for self-reflection, we provide our curriculum in the form of "I can" statements so that students understand their learning goals.

Additionally, the curriculum is fully aligned to the Common Core academic standards, with a specific focus on teaching students mastery in communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking so that they may be prepared as citizens in a rapidly changing world and economy. The curriculum will be partially curated Open Educational Resources by ISAonline teachers and partially purchased from curriculum vendors.

    A class community is very important at ISAonline. Students have the opportunity to interact daily through live lessons with their teachers and peers, during small group video calls, and through real-time educational technology. Socializing is a large part of in-person education. With the technology we have today, we are able to ensure learning doesn't occur in isolation.

  • What can students expect in terms of Live Class, and what happens if students miss a Live Class?"
    Live Class is an integral part of our academic program. Students will have at least one Live Class opportunity per school day, and students are expected to attend Live Class. If Live Class cannot be attended for a valid reason, then our school maintains flexibility for students by recording and posting all Live Class sessions so they may watch and participate according to their individual schedule. This means that students can either attend live or watch the recording.
  • If I have a Live Class, then will I also have a full lesson to complete before or after?"
    No. Live Class will be the learning activity posted for class for that day. On Live Class days, students will be expected to attend (or watch the recording) and participate, that’s it. There may be some preparation or follow-up work associated with Live Class, but there will no longer be an entire lesson in addition to a thirty to sixty minute Live Class.
  • Can students work ahead or work at a slower than assigned pace?
    Every student is different and classroom teachers can adjust pacing for students based on their individual needs and what is best for their learning and achievement.
  • Do students only have access to school assignments during school days?
    No. All published materials in a teacher’s class are available until the due date or availability dates for those materials have passed, including nights and weekends. While teachers are only available during school days and school hours, students can access their coursework from anywhere they can connect online through their laptop.
  • Will students be able to see all the coursework and assignments at once?
    Not necessarily, but that is because a planned module may change based on how student learning is progressing throughout a term. Teachers will make available modules once they are planned, and in many cases this availability will be well in advance of the module’s start date.
  • How will due dates, missing assignments and turning in assignments work?"
    Teachers will define and customize due dates and lesson pacing for their classes. Student gradebooks will display assignments as having a score or be marked as missing or late depending on when it was or if it was not turned in. Turning in assignments will always happen directly through our learning platform.
  • How will parents access student course content for support and accountability purposes?
    Parents/Guardians will be able to view grades, course content, due dates, completed school work and other student-specific course items for each of their students through our learning platform. This will allow for parents/guardians to fully support and hold accountable their student(s) as they see fit. Course specifics like due dates, assignments and other tasks are planned and delivered by the classroom teacher. This access will work through both the web-based version of our learning platform as well as through our parent app.
  • Will learning parents need to verify or “mark complete” any lessons or work?
    No. The teacher will verify and give feedback on assigned student tasks.
  • When will families have access to the new systems in order to learn them?
