How It Works

Curious about 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 K12-provided books and materials.* State-licensed teachers provide instruction in virtual sessions called “Class Connects.”

ISOR-PH Programs

Insight School of Oregon–Painted Hills (ISOR-PH) uses quality curriculum from K12 that’s designed to let students find the learning style that works best for them, allowing them to find their own path to success. Each online classroom offers engaging and relevant lessons that build on your child’s interests and abilities.

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.
