Approved Providers List
We categorize the providers listed below into three groups:
- Online School Programs (definition)
- Online Course Providers (definition)
As of 2011, online provider approval impacts state funding to districts for students in online courses. Providers must maintain certain responsibilities to maintain their approved status. Follow the links below for more details about these providers and their overall instructional offerings.
Note that a provider may not appear on this list for a variety of reasons.

Not on the list?
Looking for a program or provider that isn't on the approved list? There are a number of reasons why an organization may not be on the list:
- The provider may not offer a product that meets the definition of an online course. Common examples of such products include online curriculum products (without online teachers) from NovaNet, OdysseyWare, and others. Note that such products could be combined with an online teacher, and therefore meet the definition. If you're not sure, contact us for clarification.
- The provider may not meet the definition of an online course provider or an online school program.
Providers that meet these conditions have not been reviewed or approved by OSPI.
Approved Provider Responsibilities
