New Student Registration

K-8 Registration

If your student is in grades K-8, use the K-12 Parent Portal to register your student and fill out the K12 portion of the application. This process is necessary to receive materials for class. Please choose your student’s elective(s) by filling out this K-8 Electives form.

What To Expect

Students using the K12 program (grades K-8) participate in a hybrid learning system. Some materials and workbooks will be sent home for the student to use as well as having access to their classes and other materials online. The learning coach (usually the parent/guardian) will guide their student through the courses each day, recording their progress online. Weekly student progress goals take the place of daily attendance. All courses are asynchronous. A Utah-certified teacher is assigned to each student to help with content mastery, pacing, scheduling, etc. and can be contacted via phone, email, or video conference. The family is responsible for their own internet access and computer.

Online/Offline Split

Grades K-5 – 50% online/50% offline

The 50% offline usually involves the learning coach/parent (scripted portions of the lesson, setting up experiments, grading some quizzes, etc.). The amount of time a full-time student spends on K12 is comparable to learning time in a brick and mortar school, 4-6 hours a day. A parent is involved directly for 2-3 hours a day of that (excluding prepping/gathering materials).

Grades 6-8 – Split online/offline

Math is 100% online. Other subjects are 80% online/20% offline. Little parental/guardian involvement required in daily lessons. Students benefit from support and reinforcement from parents..

What resources and supports are needed for a successful Provo eSchool student?

  • Has stable internet and computer access. (The District can provide a Chromebook);
  • Has a learning coach (parent/guardian) available daily to guide the student through the K12 curriculum to ensure completion of lessons;
  • Responds to teacher communications at least weekly and reaches out to the teacher with questions; and
  • Completes the weekly progress and participation goal. Work days and times during the week are flexible.
