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:
- As a single district online program, the provider may be exempt from the OSPI approval process prior to the 2013-14 school year.
- 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, online school program, or online school program provider.
Providers that meet these conditions have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by OSPI.
