An Iowa Department of Education virtual learning program designed to help local school districts expand learning opportunities for their high school students through high-quality, rigorous courses. All courses are taught by Iowa licensed and appropriately endorsed teachers.
ILO is meant to supplement and support your school’s curriculum. Courses are offered tuition-free to accredited public and non-public schools and dually enrolled home-school students; participating schools and districts continue to receive full per-pupil funding.
Students are enrolled in ILO courses through their local school or district, with grades and credits being given by the local district or school.
Schools find ILO useful to address credit recovery, credit advancement, scheduling conflicts, courses otherwise not available within the district, and teacher shortages.
