Online High School Program
The Online High School program is accepting enrollment for the Spring, 2021 semester. Course sections are built based on student interest expressions and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Due to the forecasted increase in interest for online learning, enrollment options will begin to rapidly diminish as the second semester draws near, so it is imperative that the enrollment process is completed as soon as possible and ideally by Friday, November 6. Please contact the registrar at your high school to initiate this process. Online classes for the second semester will start on January 5, 2021.

D38 Online High School Program Information
Lewis-Palmer School District 38 is excited to provide students with an opportunity to individualize and customize their education by providing an online option that honors student choice surrounding time, place, and path of learning. The Lewis-Palmer Online High School Program (LPOHSP) exists to serve eligible students in 9th – 12th grade with options for part-time and full-time online enrollment. Students have the ability to access the curriculum and assignments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere with an internet connection and receive the support from both content teachers as well as a site based Online Mentor. Students interested in enrollment with the Lewis-Palmer Online High School Program must have an active enrollment within Lewis-Palmer School District and live within D38 boundaries.
Given the recent responses to COVID-19, it is important to understand the distinction between Distance Learning (formerly "Remote Learning") and enrollment in the D38 Online High School Program. The Distance Learning v. LPOHSP chart serves as a resource to outline the similarities and differences between the two learning modalities and inform enrollment decisions.
To succeed in the D38 Online High School Program students must be passionate about learning, own the learning process, and be dedicated and responsible for creating their successes. LPOHSP provides the option for flexibility but requires progress to be made in all online courses regularly. Students are required to be independent, motivated learners; much more so than in a traditional classroom. Therefore, students must demonstrate the ability to succeed independently in order to be allowed to continue in the online program. It is recommended that students engage consistently with academic content to promote retention and have a regular schooling schedule in place to manage time and meet course deadlines.
Students with exceptional support needs (ALP, IEP, 504, etc) will be able to access any of the in-person or online learning environments available. If a change of educational placement occurs, the school team will convene an IEP or 504 meeting to make the appropriate adjustments.
If your student is interested in enrolling in the D38 Online High School Program (or you would like more information), please contact your high school’s registrar.
