How It Works
Curious how online learning works?
With online learning, your teen can learn at home, or wherever there's an internet connection, while enjoying the benefits and support of a school program. They'll complete a mix of online lessons and offline activities, using Stride K12-provided books and materials.* State-licensed teachers provide instruction in virtual sessions called "Class Connects."
What to Expect
What's my role as a parent?
You'll play an active and important role as your child's Learning Coach. Plan to:
- Provide academic support, motivation, and guidance throughout the school year
- Ensure your child is on track with assignments and coursework
- Communicate with teachers
- Report daily attendance
If you or your child's legal guardian are unable to fill this role, you can choose a family member, friend, or another trusted adult to be the Learning Coach.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible to attend ISOR-PH?
Any student in grades 7–12 who resides in Oregon is eligible for full-time enrollment.
What does it cost to attend ISOR-PH?
ISOR-PH is a public school program, so there is no tuition. We provide Oregon-licensed teachers and instructional materials. Eligible families receive a loaner computer and printer. Students and families will be responsible for providing some common household materials (such as printer ink and paper). Our enrollment consultants can help address your technological and computer questions and needs.
How many of my children can I enroll in ISOR-PH?
Because ISOR-PH provides the lesson plans and materials needed for grades 7–12, many parents find it easy to enroll multiple children in the program.
What is the attendance policy?
As Oregon public school students, all ISOR-PH students must comply with the state-required minimum number of 180 instructional days.
Can our family take a vacation during the school year?
The school calendar includes school holidays or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. Parents are encouraged to contact their student's teacher if they plan a vacation that does not coordinate with the school calendar.
How much time will my child spend online?
We expect that middle school and high school students will spend most of their time online. Students also do hands-on science experiments, read novels, and complete math problems that are done without the computer.
How do students interact socially?
Students spend time with classmates online and through school outings, field trips, and other activities. They can also participate in their resident school district sports and extracurriculars as allowed by the Oregon School Activities Association. Students can also join school and Stride K12 online national clubs to connect with peers of like interests.
