Distance Learning Opportunities for Iowa High School Students

Iowa Learning Online (ILO) is designed to help local Iowa school districts expand learning opportunities for their high school students through courses delivered "at a distance" using technologies such as the Internet and interactive video classrooms connected to the Iowa Communications Network (ICN).

Students enroll in ILO courses through their local school district. Each student must be supported locally by a site coordinator (coach) — a school employee, such as a school counselor, teacher or paraprofessional.

In this relatively unfamiliar and rapidly changing environment, selecting appropriate and credible online providers and resources can be a challenge for school districts/schools,parents/guardians, and students.

ILO is Currently Accepting Resumes

ILO is currently accepting resumes for possible part-time online teaching positions for grades 9-12 in all curriculum areas.

Superintendents, High School Principals and School Counselors

For the current list of High School Credit Classes, courses marked "Enrollment Fee Waived" have waived enrollment fees. In addition, ILO will pay all ICN video fees associated with the classes.

ILO Enrollment Policy

In an effort to provide equity of access to the limited number of seats in ILO courses where enrollment fees are waived, each school district will be limited to enrolling 12 students per course, per semester.
