About WLWV K12 Online Program
In the fall of 2020, the West Linn-Wilsonville School District launched its first fully, online K-12 program: WKOP. Due to the pandemic, in this first year the enrollment response was very high with over 1,500 students enrolled. This allowed for a greater number of staff to be shifted full-time to WKOP, and three full-time directors overseeing each primary, middle and high school level of the program. The District anticipates much lower enrollment in subsequent years, so the structure will look somewhat different.
Students interested in learning full-time remotely (at home), enroll at their home school but indicate that they wish to enroll in the WKOP program. A WKOP staff member connects with the student/family to help guide a school-year plan including courses and timeline. The student’s parent/guardian becomes the Learning Coach for the student.
Staff assigned to WKOP are fully available to the student/family throughout the school year to address program questions, help with technology concerns that arise and assure connection to the home school.
The WLWV School District contracts with Stride K12 (formally known as Fuel Ed) for it’s digital curriculum covering state standards and content areas.
Primary and Middle School Curriculum
The K–8 curriculum includes core courses that focus on developing fundamental skills and teaching the key knowledge building blocks or schemas that each student needs to master the major subject areas, meet state standards, and complete more advanced coursework. The curriculum includes informal or formal assessments built into nearly every lesson to ensure mastery and provide for remediation or enrichment where necessary.
High School Curriculum
As students move through middle school and into high school, their work becomes increasingly independent. High school courses are designed for students targeting a four-year university, a local community college, or an immediate career. Many high school courses are offered at two levels: on-level and honors.
