Dear Families,

Our course pacing guide officially starts this week. We hope each of you enjoy a day off on Monday and are ready to get started, if you have not already, on Tuesday.

Starting a new semester is exciting. You get to take the lessons you learned from last semester and apply them. Start new work habits, get to know a new facilitator, and learn new information and skills! There are many tools available to you to help you on your way.

  • Pacing Guide: This is our suggested guide for how to pace out and complete your courses on time.
  • Work Organizer: This can help you organize your work, keep track of your goals, and ensure that you are remembering what helps online learning success!
  • Live Chat Tutor: Each learner has a class titled “iLEAD Online Chat Tutor”. Learners can request a tutoring appointment for any of their subject to be delivered by phone, text, email, or video chat.
  • Parent Shadow Account: Please email us to request a PowerSchool account for parents to be able to access assignments, learner work, and grade reports!

We understand you may need to switch courses. Please use our withdrawal form within the first 20 days of registration to request a course change.

With gratitude,
The iLEAD Online team
