4 Admission and Enrollment: WPSD Online Program is a school of choice, therefore, admission may be denied if it is determined the student is not a strong candidate for online learning. Staff will consider previous academic history, attendance, grades, academic assessment information, technology skills, and level of support provided by parents or a learning coach. Students may be accepted on academic probation which allows a student up to 30 days or in some cases an entire semester to prove sufficient effort to be successful in the online program. Prior to acceptance in the WPSD Online Program, all registration documents must be completed including proof of residency and online agreement which outlines attendance, testing and login requirements. All full-time WPSD Online students must be enrolled in a full schedule of classes including at least four online classes, three of which are in core classes (English/language arts, math, science and social studies) with remaining classes either online or in combination with on-campus classes. Part-time online courses may be considered in special circumstances, but will not qualify for computer and Internet vouchers. Dual Enrollment: Students wishing to participate in the WPSD Online Program part-time while attending another Colorado school district must provide a completed Part-Time Student Form signed from the other district indicating an agreement to share funding. Attendance Requirements: Because we are a public school, all WPSD Online students are required to meet state attendance requirements. Students are expected to follow our WPSD Online school calendar working daily on their courses. Students are considered in attendance by consistently logging on and completing lessons and assignments. Parents or learning coaches are required to ensure their student progresses and may need to oversee time management. Weekly progress is monitored closely by the district and students are expected to complete yearly courses within a school calendar year. During our October count window (September 20 to October 10) all students must submit at least one assignment each school day for each online course. Students who do not meet the October Count requirements may be subject to dismissal from the WPSD Online program. A WPSD Online full-time student is expected to spend several hours a day, 5 days a week working on courses. Typical students in Kindergarten through 3 rd grade will spend 3-4 hours and students in 4 th grade through high school will spend 5-6 hours each day. Students may have flexibility in managing the time, but failure to make consistent progress on a weekly basis will result in phone calls, personal meetings and could result in truancy procedures. In order to continue in the online program, the student must adhere to all attendance requirements, demonstrate academic progress, and participate in all state and local assessments. Absences Should a situation arise where a student may be absent for an extended period of time and unable to actively participate in the online program, WPSD Online staff should be notified immediately so alternate schooling plans may be discussed.
5 Truancy The parent or guardian of students who do not actively participate in their online courses after seven days will be notified of their inactivity. Staff will work with the parent or guardian and student to problem solve any issues. The parent or guardian of students who do not actively participate in their online courses after 14 days will be sent a letter indicating concern over lack of participation and a possible truancy situation with another opportunity to problem solve any issues. Truancy procedures may be started at this time. After continued inactivity from the student, any student 17 years of age or under will be considered truant and will be reported to appropriate authorities. The student will be required to return to regular school programming in one of our buildings. Communication Communication is critical to student success. is usually the quickest and most efficient way of communicating with all WPSD Online staff. Phone messages may also be used, but may take longer for a reply, especially during school breaks. All communications are expected to be professional. Counseling and Guidance Services WPSD Online staff will work to ensure appropriate courses. For students also taking courses on campus, WPSD Online staff will coordinate online and on-campus courses. At the high school level, our WPSD Online High School Counselor/Advisor will either provide services or connect students to resources to assist with course selections to meet post-secondary goals, career planning, scholarships, graduation requirements, college entrance requirements and letters of recommendation. State and Local Assessments All WPSD Online students are required to participate in all state and local assessments. Any student who fails to participate in any of the following assessments may not be approved to enroll in WPSD online program the following year.

Any changes to the courses must be made within the first 14 days of receiving a course. Any changes after 14 days may be subject to a fee. If a student drops a class, fails to make progress or does not log attendance in a class after the 14 days, a grade of F will be recorded. Extensions may only be offered in unique situations with administrative approval. Students moving quickly through the curriculum should be encouraged to take advantage of all enrichment and extension activities. Special Needs Depending on the needs of the student, we are able to provide some services for our students with special needs through specialized programming, consultation with our special education staff or providing services on-site. For students on an IEP (Individualized Educational Plan) and receiving special education services, an IEP meeting must be held prior to enrollment in our online program to ensure the student s needs may be met and online programming is an appropriate placement. The IEP should reflect appropriate courses, accommodations,
7 additional services and goals to determine progress. A Special Education teacher from the appropriate building level will be assigned as case manager. Plagiarism/Cheating Students will receive a 0 for any assignment for which the student has plagiarized, cheated, or acted in an unethical manner. WPSD online staff will document the issue and notify the parent/guardian of the student as well as WPSD Administration. Plagiarism or cheating may also result in disenrollment from a course or the WPSD online program. Middle School and High School Grading Policy Grades are based on the following percentages and calculated at the end of each semester. Courses will not be considered for final grading until the student has reached at least 80% completion and taken the final. Students completing 90% or higher will receive an added 5% points to their final grade. *** At the high school level, final exams must be proctored in the Online Liaison Room at the High School % = A 80 89% = B 70 79% = C 60 69% = D 59% and lower = F Students at the Middle School will receive a progress report mid-way through the semester at the end of each quarter. Progress noted reflects the % of work completed (should be roughly 50% mid-way through a semester) and the quality of the work completed. Students not completing a course in the assigned semester will receive an F on the report card/transcript for that semester. Students may continue to work on the course during the next semester, but the final grade will be reported in the new semester and the F will remain. Special circumstances (including extended time) may be considered for valid reasons if approved prior to the end of the grading period. Please contact WPOLP staff to discuss any concerns or issues so problems can be addressed in a timely fashion. Any modifications will be written in a formal plan.
8 Woodland Park School District Online Program (WPSD Online Program) FAQ Frequently Asked Questions Woodland Park School District is very excited about offering alternative educational opportunities for the families in our area. Following is a list of frequently asked questions concerning our On-Line curriculum. 1. What is the WPSD Online Program? Parents work with their children at home using rigorous, standards-based content. Lincoln Interactive is our online program which is a rigorous curriculum tied to Colorado State Standards, offers a wide variety of secondary options including AP readiness courses and involves regular feedback from online highly qualified teachers in each content area. The curriculum is managed through an online system, but also includes textbooks, reading books, hands on materials, writing assignments, video lessons, etc. 2. How can I find out more about Lincoln Interactive. You can visit their website at: 3. What courses will be available through WPSD Online Program? Lincoln Interactive offers the core curriculum (Language Arts including both reading and writing, math, science and social studies) as well as a variety of enrichment classes. 4. What if I don t have a computer? For every family that enrolls by August 31 st in our full on-line core curriculum, we will provide a $400 stipend once every 3 years to go toward a computer and printer. Families may use this stipend to purchase or upgrade their computer equipment to best meet their needs. It is highly recommended that you have high speed internet and the district will pay each family a $30 per month stipend to assist with the internet cost. Families who do not complete the first year of the On-Line program may be asked to return the $400 stipend. 5. How much does it cost? The District receives state funding for most students participating in this online option, so all curriculum, materials and software is provided free of charge if enrolled prior to September 15 th. In addition, the District will provide a $400 stipend every three years to help pay for computer and printer costs as well as $30/month to help with the cost of high speed internet to each family that enrolls for full-time online core courses (Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies) by August 31st. Families will need to cover the cost of some consumable items such as printer ink, paper, etc. as well as any repairs. 6. How much time can I expect to spend on schoolwork? While each child is different, students should expect to spend between 3 6 hours on schoolwork each day. At the lower grades, more time is spent with hands on materials and less time on the computer. Students have reading books, math problems, science experiments, and writing assignments averaging approximately 3-4 hours per day on core curriculum. At the higher grades, the amount of time spent on the computer increases but they are still expected to do work off-line as well. Students from 4 th grade through High School can expect to spend from 4 6 hours daily on core curriculum. Both online programs are rigorous and are designed for parents who wish to homeschool their children, provide some structure for schoolwork and interact daily toward meeting educational goals. 7. As a parent, how much time should I expect to spend working with my child? At the lower grades, parents should expect to spend approximately 80% of the time working with their child. At the higher grades as students reading skills and independent working skills improve, parents should expect to spend about 50% of the time working with their child. Both programs are designed as rigorous homeschooling curriculum requiring consistent coaching and teaching from a parent or adult. Even at the upper grade levels, from 6 th through 12 th grade, a parent or learning coach should expect to monitor and enforce progress 100% of the time. 8. Do we need to follow a schedule? Because we are a public school, we do have certain attendance requirements. Students are expected to follow a regular school calendar working daily on their courses and parents are required to submit attendance logs.
9 Parents do have the flexibility of scheduling when and where students work. Students could work on and off throughout the day or evening, work from a personal laptop while traveling, or spend time on weekends so they have some time off during the week. Students are expected to complete yearly courses within a school calendar. Our WPSD Online programs are designed to monitor student progress throughout the year to let parents, students and our Online Teacher know how students are performing and if they are on track to complete the courses. ****During our October count window (approximately Sept. 20 to October 10 each year), all students are required to log into each course every school day and complete at least one assignment. 9. Who will be our WPSD Online Teacher or School Contact? Sandy Struble is our Online Liaison as well as Cottage School Teacher and is a certified teacher working primarily with students in Kindergarten through 5 th grade. Diana Roberts is our Online Liaison working with our secondary students from Grades Both Sandy and Diana have experience as classroom teachers and have homeschooled their own children. They are responsible for helping parents and students get started, training on the software, communicating frequently with students and parents, problem solving any issues and monitoring the progress of the students. Communication between our Online Liaisons and parents of WPSD Online students would include s, phone and personal contact. Each student is encouraged to have at least two face-to-face meetings throughout the year, but the online liaisons are available for more contact, if needed.

10 11. What is the Elementary Cottage School? Our Cottage School is an enrichment opportunity available to families who homeschool or attend an Online program at the elementary level (Grades K 5). The purpose of this program, is to offer enrichment activities in a structured school setting that would complement a homeschooling core curriculum. Students attend Gateway Elementary School for two afternoons a week with Sandy Struble. During that time, students participate in PE, Art, and Music (on a rotating basis), Science labs, and Technology as well as learning opportunities in our Media Center. Other options could include literacy assessments and school-wide events, programs and assemblies. Cottage school classes are split into a session for early elementary students and one for upper elementary students, with each class meeting two afternoons per week. To enroll, parents need to complete all registration forms at Gateway Elementary School. Students attending another on-line program (not WPSD Online Program) would need a letter from their online program acknowledging and agreeing with your participation in our Cottage School, as we would be sharing funding. 12. Why don t you have a Cottage School available for the Middle School or High School? Students who homeschool or are enrolled in our WPSD Online Program are welcome to attend Woodland Park Middle School or Woodland Park High School for enrichments and/or combinations of core classes.

Students at all levels are also welcome to participate in after school sports and activities. 13. What if my child has special needs? Depending on the needs of the student, we are able to provide some special education services either through specialized programming, consultation with our special education staff or providing services on-site.

What about GT or GATE (Gifted and Talented) Services? Our District formally assesses students in 3 rd Grade and 6 th Grade. Students meeting district guidelines for GT Services have an Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) written to address identified areas with goals and action plans to meet those goals and may be given above grade level curriculum, if qualified. 15.

Will I receive a Woodland Park High School diploma? All students in our WPSD High School Online Program will be working on the same graduation requirements as our students taking courses on campus. Students meeting the graduation requirements will receive a WPHS diploma. 17. Do I need to take all courses online or may I take some courses at the High School? At the High School level, we require all WPSD Online students to take a minimum of three core classes (English, Math, Science, Social Studies) through our WPSD Online program. Students may choose to take additional electives through the WPSD Online program or are welcome to attend the high school for a variety of courses on-campus. It is our hope that all students receive a well-rounded educational experience which may include courses on-line and on-campus. Our high school requires *26 credits (one full year of a course equals 1 credit)
11 for graduation and all students must be working toward meeting those requirements. (*Class of credits; Class of 2016 and credits) 18. Am I able to work ahead in the curriculum? At this time, once students are placed in the appropriate curriculum, we will not be ordering additional curriculum until the following year. Students moving quickly through the curriculum should be encouraged to do the enrichment and extension activities. However, students may complete a given semester prior to the scheduled due date. 19. Do you offer College Credit or Dual Enrollment Options? Woodland Park School District offers several college credit options available to students including courses taught on campus with agreements through: UCCS (calculus and physics taught on WPHS campus) PPCC (college algebra, English, Spanish taught on WPHS campus) AVP (Area Vocational Programs through PPCC for students accepted through an application) 10 Advanced Placement courses (AP courses taught on WPHS campus or online students may pay the fee to take any of the AP tests offered on campus in May) On-campus articulations in Career Tech Ed ASCENT (full year of courses at PPCC for 5 th year seniors accepted through an application) 20.
