Out of District & Online Course Information

OVERVIEW: At Eastlake, we ordinarily do not recommend students accelerate their pathway over the summer, but we also understand that some students can accelerate the pathway and still find success at the next level. We do not want to hold a student back from advancing in their course work, but at the same time we want to be sure they are prepared for the next level. Please refer to the Recommended Math and Science Pathways Information on the previous page.


COURSE ALIGNMENT: Think carefully. Out of District course curriculum does not fully align with Eastlake courses. This may create potential gaps in content. It is the student's responsibility to seek additional support during the next level to compensate for these gaps.

YEAR-LONG COMMITMENT: Registration is a year-long commitment and students will not be allowed to switch classes because their grade doesn't meet their expectations. Students may request to take a placement test at Eastlake to decide whether to move to the next level class.

NCAA REQUIREMENTS: If you plan to play a sport at a Division I or II college/university, it is your responsibility to check with the NCAA to see if the Out of District course you chose is approved.

REGISTRATION: For Eastlake course registration for the 2020-21 school year, Every student MUST register for the next course in the sequence. Once their transcript is received from their Out of District Provider in August, the student’s schedule will then be changed to the next course.

HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT FOR COURSES TAKEN BEFORE ENTERING 9TH GRADE:
(Class of 2024 and beyond)
Students who complete and pass high school level courses taken before attending high school shall automatically be given high school credit, which shall be applied to fulfilling high school graduation requirements. At the request of the student and the student’s parent/guardian, high school credit earned before high school may be transcribed with a non-numerical grade. A non-numerical grade will not be included in the student’s high school grade point average calculations. High school credit earned prior to high school and transcribed with a non-numerical grade will apply to fulfilling high school graduation requirements.
A student and the student’s parent/guardian must inform the school before the end of the 11th grade if they do not want credit for the course(s) taken before attending high school or if they want to request that credit be transcribed with a non-numerical grade.
(Class of 2021-2023)
Students will have the option to place their Out of District course or middle school grades on their high school transcripts.

MULTIPLE OUT-OF-DISTRICT CREDITS: If a student plans to take more than one course, they will need to submit multiple forms.

MAXIMUM OUT-OF-DISTRICT CREDITS: Students are not allowed to take more than 3.0 total credits outside of Eastlake during their high school career, so please plan accordingly.

DEADLINE: Students must turn in all forms NO LATER THAN MAY 15, 2020. Any forms submitted after this date will not be approved.

PROVIDERS: Please refer to the OSPI Approved Online Provider List under Forms & Links on the top of this page.
