ISOK offers a variety of online instructional sessions (Class Connect). This instruction is provided through NewRow. Scheduled Class Connect sessions can be viewed and accessed from the landing page of your OLS account. All sessions are recorded, and families may access recordings through their OLS account. Participation in these sessions assists students in mastering Oklahoma Academic Standards set forth by the State of Oklahoma. Teachers provide direct instruction integrating state standards and needed course content. There are several types of sessions designed to meet the various needs of our students.
- Class Connect Sessions: This type of session is offered in all courses. These classes meet daily and have attendance expectations.
- Small Group Class Connect Sessions: This type of session focuses on specific skills gaps in any courses. Teachers will schedule these sessions for students during Small Group time.
For students performing below grade level, ISOK will include specific interventions as part of a student’s ILP. These interventions will include both online and offline approaches to ensure that struggling students are provided with structured efforts to address gaps in their knowledge or skills. The online approach includes targeted synchronous tutoring sessions through NewRow where the student and teacher are working together on tasks, such as USA Test Prep, Freckle, study skills, and other interventions. Teachers and counselors may work as needed with students and Learning Coaches face-to-face. For in-person meetings, staff members will follow ISOK safety procedures and public-school meeting policies.
The school uses block scheduling for high school courses. This format allows students to take core courses in concentrated 9-week periods. This allows credit-deficient students to take more core courses over the period of an academic year. This helps students get back and/or stay on track for graduation within four years.
See High School: Block Scheduling for more information.
