Idaho Digital Learning Alliance (IDLA) is a state-sponsored, accredited, online school created to provide students with greater access to a wide variety of courses taught by highly qualified faculty.
IDLA works in partnership with Idaho school districts to offer online courses to students. This increases access and equity for students statewide.
In order to sign up for an IDLA course, students must be enrolled with the local school and have completed all necessary prerequisites for the class prior to enrollment. To enroll in an IDLA course, students must first meet with their counselor to determine if they qualify for this option. Parent approval is also required.
Credit for an IDLA course is granted through the local school of any grade and credits students earned. These grades and credits will be part of a student’s official transcript.
Fees are $75 per class payable online to IDLA during the registration process. If a student is enrolled as a full time student at the local school, the student may be eligible to use Advanced Opportunities funds to pay for the course as an overload credit. If a student fails to pass an IDLA course which is funded by Advanced Opportunities funds, the student will not have access to additional Advanced Opportunities funds for IDLA courses until an additional IDLA course has been successfully passed.
Students wishing to access their Advanced Opportunities funding to take an overload course with IDLA should complete the following steps:
- Meet with the College & Career Coordinator, or the assigned school Counselor, to discuss the process, potential course selection, and course registration information.
- Complete the Advanced Opportunities Participation Form- This form needs to be signed and returned to the Middle School College and Career Coordinator or the Main Office at the student’s middle school.
- Register for a course. The College & Career Coordinator will provide step-by-step registration instructions when meeting with the student.
- Be successful in the course(s) they take! The grades for these courses will be placed on the permanent high school transcript. If a student fails to earn credit or successfully complete a course for which the Advanced Opportunities program has paid for, the funds will be frozen from future use until the student pays for and successfully completes a similar course.
