Enrollment and Attendance FAQs
Who is eligible to attend iQ Academy California – Los Angeles (IQLA)?
Any student in grades TK–12 who resides in one of these California counties is eligible for full-time enrollment:
- Los Angeles County
- Kern County
- Orange County
- San Bernardino County
- Ventura County
What is the attendance policy?
As California public school students, all IQLA students must comply with the state-required minimum number of 180 instructional days.
We expect that students will attend Class Connect sessions as required on each of the 180 days of instruction according to the official IQLA school calendar and complete lessons before the end of each school day. When a student completes work offline, the parent/Learning Coach must submit a school-supplied offline work log as directed by their assigned teacher for each day without accompanying online work. All offline work logs must be submitted at the conclusion of each school day or as requested by the assigned teacher. If an offline work log is not submitted, the teacher will not credit the student with attendance for that school day.
Can our family take a vacation during the school year?
The school calendar includes school holidays or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. In California, vacation is not an approved reason for absence. If a student skips a day during the week, they will be marked absent.
Once we start the school year, can we change our minds and go back to our home district?
Although we work hard to make IQLA a positive experience for all students, if you feel this is not the best choice for your child, you have the ability to return to your local school or homeschooling. We recommend that you complete a full year or at least a semester to be sure any challenges you perceive are not just related to adjusting to this new way to learn, and to make sure you get the full benefit of transferring credit received from IQLA.
