  • Curriculum & Planning

    Ways your child can learn

    All students enrolled in LEAD Correspondence must complete an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) outlining their course studies for the year. The parent, advising teacher and student, when appropriate, develops this plan jointly. The ILP must include on-going assessment and be designed to meet proficiency toward achievement of state standards.

    Curriculum, educational services and/or materials used must be aligned to the learning plan to be considered for reimbursement. Students have one year to complete their coursework.

    Parents may design their own classes with the assistance of the assigned advising teacher. These classes will list what the child is expected to learn and be aligned with the state standards. The course must include the text and materials that will be used for the course.

    Parent Designed Courses (PDC) and the text and materials used must be reviewed and approved before credit will be assigned.

    LEAD encourages the use of programs that meets all of the requirements of a sound education for the student. This may be accomplished through various ways and each parent has the ability to select the curriculum he/she feels is the best suited for his/her child. Your LEAD teacher is available to assist parents in making decisions regarding appropriate curriculum.

    Please recognize that religious, partisan, sectarian, or denominational textbooks, curriculum or materials are not reimbursable.

    LEAD requires enrollment in a minimum of four courses (8 semester classes) with our school to be counted as full time. Per regulation 4 AAC 33.426, students enrolled in a correspondence program, whether full or part-time, must take at least 50% of the student’s coursework through the statewide correspondence program in core courses.

    A student enrolled in more than two correspondence classes must take core courses in at least two different subject areas. A full time student with LEAD must take a minimum of 2 core classes. Core coursework performed outside the statewide correspondence program may not count towards the 50% core course requirement.
