Online Learning Opportunities

NISD Online Learning Opportunities


 Online learning opportunities are offered to our high school students to provide a setting for students to complete both original credit coursework as well as making up lost credit through an online learning program. Online courses can be taken during the school day in the Grad Lab at our high schools, outside of the school day, or during the summer. Students must complete all required online and offline assignments with a grade average of 70 or better in a specified time frame to receive credit. There is a fee for online courses taken during the summer session. Online learning courses do not meet NCAA standards and may not be appropriate for all learners. Please see your counselor for more information.

Original Coursework

It is recommended that students who are taking a course for the first time, take the course in a face-to-face or blended classroom setting. However, for some students who have transferred into our district, have other extenuating circumstances, or are wanting to free up additional space in their schedule, taking an online course for initial credit may be the best option for the student. Coursework completed for original credit will be assigned a numerical grade and will count in the student’s overall grade point average (GPA) and appear on the student’s transcript.

Credit Recovery Coursework

Students who have not successfully earned credit in the traditional classroom setting are given an opportunity to recoup credits through online classes if they are available for the course which covers the content originally delivered in a face-to- face class. Coursework that is completed successfully for credit recovery will receive a grade of P for passing, will not be calculated in the GPA but will appear on the transcript.
