Idaho Digital Learning teachers are evaluated at a minimum of four times per course, with a culminating evaluation at the conclusion of each course conducted by a trained, certified Idaho administrator. Idaho Digital Learning’s evaluation process and measurable indicators are aligned with national online standards and the evaluation requirements set forth by the State of Idaho. As Idaho’s State Virtual School, evaluative information submitted to the Idaho State Department of Education (SDE) follows guidelines developed between Idaho Digital Learning and the SDE which includes an approved timeframe for submitting annual teacher evaluative information. In compliance with SDE guidelines, Idaho Digital Learning submitted evaluation data for the 2014-2015 school year and will be submitting 2015-2016 data in August 2016.
Idaho Digital Learning employs highly qualified, Idaho-certified teachers and administrators throughout the state. A majority of these teachers and principals are dually-employed in an Idaho School District. Additionally, Idaho Digital Learning works with school districts, the State Department of Education, and the State Board of Education to ensure all recommendations and regulations required of public school districts and charter schools are followed in practice. Idaho Digital Learning continues to work with all stakeholders to ensure quality in online courses and to provide accountability, as well as transparency.
