Dear Families,

We hope you all are settling back into the routine of school. We know transitions can take some thought and time. If you’re struggling with school routines, or how to best set up your physical space or daily schedule for success, please let us know. We have some great tips and tricks.

If you have not registered for spring classes, please do so HERE. Our team is working hard to put learners into their online courses this week (within 24-48 hours of being ordered). While our first week of coursework does not begin until January 22nd, learners are welcome (and encouraged) to get a headstart on week 1 coursework and beyond.

If you have questions about Semester 1 reports or need support getting started for Semester 2, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at

With gratitude,
The iLEAD Online team
