How it works:

The Utah Legislature established public Education Online in the 2011 General Session. The program enables eligible students to earn high school graduation credit through the completion of publicly funded online courses. The purposes of Public Education Online program are to:

Who is eligible:

You are eligible to participate in Public Education Online if you are in grades 9-12 and enrolled in a Utah public school. For the 2011-2012 school year, you may enroll in up to two credits in online courses (except for early graduation - see below). You may earn no more credits in a semester than the number of credits you may earn by taking a full course load during the regular school day at your high school classroom.

How to register:

You should begin by reviewing the course catalog on this website. Determine which courses you are interested in taking online. Discuss with your school counselor your interest in taking the course and how this course will fit into your Student Education and Occupation Plan (SEOP). You may fill out the application form found here to prepare for your meeting with your school counselor.

Because your parent(s) or guardian(s) will be required to approve your enrollment in an online course, you should plan on having them with you when you meet with your school counselor. Your school counselor should:
  1. In conjunction with you and your parent or legal guardian, prepare and implement a student education/occupation plan (SEOP).
  2. Assist you in scheduling courses in accordance with your SEOP, graduation requirements and post-secondary plan.
If you plan to take online courses, your school counselor will fill out the necessary forms and process your request. Once this process is complete, you will be ready to begin your online classes. The district online education program will contact you to assist you in enrolling.

Early Graduation Options:

You may be eligible to earn more credits in a semester than the number of credits you may earn by taking a full course load during the regular school day in your high school, if you intend to complete high school graduation requirements and exit high school early in accordance with your education/occupation plan (SEOP).
