eSchool High School Registration

eSchool High School Registration

All high school students in the Provo City School District must be enrolled at Independence, Provo, or Timpview High School. Students may enroll in online courses with counselor permission, but eSchool does not accept full-time high school students nor award diplomas. Students choose online courses by meeting with their high school counselor. Provo Online courses are accredited, but not NCAA-approved.

What To Expect

Students in grades 9-12 will receive online access to their courses. All curriculum is found there and students complete and turn in assignments through the online course portal. All communication will come to the student’s student email address or their online dashboard.

Curriculum

High school students may take courses from Provo Online (powered by BYU IS through Buzz) with Provo City School District teachers.  We offer original credit and credit recovery courses. 

Timeline

Students may enroll in an online course at anytime during the school year. They’ll be given 6o days from the day they’re enrolled to finish the coursework and take the final exam. Students who do not finish in 60 days may receive a 60 day extension by paying a $15 fee through their high school’s financial secretary. All courses have a strict end date of the last day of school. 

Participation

Students are required to be engaged in their online courses until they are completed. Students will be receiving P-scores for their activity in online courses each Friday. A P-0 score means they did not login and did not do any work during a given week. P-1 scores mean they did minimal work, P-2 scores mean they did the expected amount of work, and P-3 scores mean that they exceeded expectations. If they receive a P-0 for two consecutive weeks, meaning they did not login and did not do any work, they will be dropped from their online class(es). This is mandatory and consistent with the state’s 10-day drop rule for attendance. Once they are dropped, they cannot be reinstated into the course until the following semester. Please be sure students are engaged each week in their online courses. Contact Clint Smith (clints@provo.edu) with any questions.

Credit Recovery

Credit recovery courses are available for students in grades 9-12 who previously failed a core course. These courses must be completed within 60 days of enrollment. Credit recovery course grades do not replace failed grades, but a Pass grade is added to the student’s transcript showing the credit has been completed.

Grade Replacement

A student who has failed a course or gotten a low grade and wishes to replace the grade, may take a comparable original credit online course to replace that grade. The student must have the plan and course approved prior to enrolling online. The new grade earned will replace the previous grade on the student’s transcript.

Graduation Requirements

Provo eSchool no longer enrolls full-time high school students or awards diplomas. However, Provo School District high school students may still take accredited online courses through eSchool that count toward a high school diploma.
