“Parents are still understandably nervous about sending their children to brick-and-mortar schools and are looking for solutions that will work for them right away,” said ISWA Head of School Cecily Kiester. “Because of the demand, we worked quickly with the District to provide this new solution for middle school parents across the state.”

ISWA, an online public-school program of the Quillayute Valley School District, has been serving Washington families for over 14 years.

“As we looked for options to help Washington families, we wanted to go with one that has a track record of success and isn’t just a recent solution,” said Diana Reaume, from Quillayute Valley School District.

Students choose online school for a variety of reasons including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. ISWA’s online platform gives students the opportunity to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment and at an appropriate pace for their learning style.
