Families interested in enrollment in The iLearn Institute at Lenoir City Schools should complete the following steps in order to be considered for enrollment. Please be aware that all students in grades 1-8 are required to attend a half day session once a week, in person, at the district office and a half day session with their teacher virtually once a week. The face to face and virtual schedule for K-8 can be found here. Students in grades 9-12 may be required to attend live virtual sessions depending upon the courses they are taking.
Step 1 – Parents should ensure that their students meet the criteria for enrollment. Students in grades 10-12 must have a cummulative GPA of 2.5 or higher with no more than five unexcused abcenses in the previous 2020-2021 school year. Students in grades 1-9 must have an A/B average with no final average grade below a 75 on the previous school years final report card and no more than five unexcused abcenses during the previous school year. We ask that parents verify this information becuase students who do not meet the criteria will not be accepted regardless of the situation. Administration will also review 2021-2022 diagnotic information from iReady or AIMS web assessments prior to accepting students in grades 1-9. Families enrolling in iLearn from outside the Lenoir City School District should forward copies of the students prior year attendance record and High School GPA / K-8 grade card from the previous school year to Dr. Chris Smallen at email@example.com immediately after submitting the enrollment form in step 3.
Step 2 – Review the 2021-2022 iLearn Parent / Student Handbook found here.
Step 3 – Complete the pre-enrollment form located here if you meet the initial entry requirements and are willing to make a committment to remain enrolled in the virtual school until the end of the 2021-2022 school year.
Step 4 – Schedule an onboarding session with Dr. Chris Smallen at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 5 – The iLearn Institute is a public, tuition-free school. However, there are some expenses associated with enrollment. All students are required to purchase chromebook insurance once per year, at a cost of $35. This covers all accidental damage to the device. Any damage to the chromebook charger is also covered by this insurance policy, but lost chargers must be replaced by the student at the cost of their device’s charger (currently $30). Additionally, the iLearn Institute provides all students and families a license for Genius, the iLearn Student Information System. Genius allows students to access all of their classes across three platforms in one place; parents can also check students’ grades via Genius Observer Accounts. This yearly license is $40 per school year for full time students. Families can pay for the Genius license here. If you have never used the payment system before you will need to create an account and then choose Virtual Courses and then iLearn. Do not pay the 40.00 license fee unless you have reeceived confirmation of acceptance. iLearn will not issue a refund if your student does not meet the enrollment criteria. All iLearn students are required to use the district issued chromebook for their coursework and purchase the associated insurance policy yearly for that device. Chromebook insurance fees must be paid in full prior to enrollment in iLearn. An appointment will be scheduled with the department of technology after final approval of the enrollment to pay the 35.00 chromebook fee and receive the device.
Step 6 – Student will be contacted to schedule a training session.
