This grant is NOT part of the AR Ready for Digital Learning content only grant. This grant is for TEACHER LED courses for enrolled students for which the district is serving onsite or virtually. Students who have turned in a Notice of Intent to Homeschool are not eligible for this grant.
In an effort to spread grant funds evenly and in the fairest way possible, grant funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and will be administered in three rounds, or until grant funds are exhausted. Each round will provide districts with access to a certain number of enrollments. See below.
- Round 1 = 100 enrollments or until funds are exhausted;
- Round 2 = 50 enrollments or until funds are exhausted; and
- Round 3 = 25 enrollments or until funds are exhausted.
If all funds are not exhausted after three rounds, the third round will repeat until all funds are exhausted.
One enrollment equals one student, per course, per semester (e.g. 1 student enrolled in 6 full-year courses = 12 enrollments).
Enrollment Process & Pricing
Enrollments need to be received by August 10th. You may submit them using the Enrollment Spreadsheet provided below. There is a sample line for your convenience. Please use the same formatting provided so that there isn’t trouble with the import. Each enrollment will be listed on a separate line, meaning one student enrolling in multiple classes will be listed on multiple rows. Homeschool will ALWAYS be “false” on the spreadsheet for these enrollments.
The ENROLLMENT SPREADSHEET should be emailed using this enrollment link. Emails are time stamped upon receipt. A response email will be sent verifying receipt of your enrollments. You will receive a separate email indicating those enrollments that received the grant and those that did not.
APSRC will process all GRANT APPROVED enrollments. Processing enrollments for your virtual learners who are NOT included in the grant will be done directly by the school on our eResources Digital Learning portal. If your school does not currently have a user account, you will need to request one on the home page.
Enrollments are only transferable during the drop period (see policy below). Enrollments are per student, per course, per semester. For a list of course offerings, click here.
APSRC has established a tiered pricing system to prioritize the use of the grant funds. APSRC will select the provider of the grant funded courses. The specific costs to the school district for each category of digital coursework is:
- $50 Credit Recovery
- $80 General/Core
- $100 Advanced Placement
Prices listed above are per student, per course, per semester and include all administrative fees.
Course Length & Drop Policy:
The school will decide the semester’s start and end date for each student/course on the Enrollment Spreadsheet. Extensions may be given upon request at no additional cost.
You have 14 calendar days from the enrollment date to drop any course. Drop fees may apply. Courses not dropped within the drop period will be billed at the price listed above, based on the course category.
Memorandum of Understanding:
A training video will be available for mentors/facilitators. Training will include, but is not limited to, technical instruction, extending or dropping a course, obtaining teacher information for eSchool, pulling progress and grade reports, and provider communications.
