Our Blended option was originally created to give teachers online resources to use within their classrooms in a blended learning environment. However, this could also be an option that gives your teachers access to an online course that they can edit and use with their students during remote learning.
Maintain a cumulative college GPA of 2.75 to remain eligible

If you have taken dual enrollment classes at another college or university, or dual credit at your hgih school request that your official transcripts be sent to the Admissions Office (your counselor can help with this)
Submit Eligibility Verification for Entitlements Act (EVEA) documentation. Take a clear photo of your driver license and/or the documents listed needed and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
After all grants, discounts, and scholarships have been applied, pay your fees. Grant and scholarship money may take time to apply. DO NOT pay any fees until you are sure all money has been awarded to your account. Dual Enrollment students will NOT be dropped for late fee payments until after the semester begins.
The International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) recently asked the Coordinator of Niswonger Online to present at their symposium detailing the benefits of our online learning program and how it helps students in rural settings. The Niswonger Foundation was thrilled and our Coordinator of Learning Resources, Gina Pavlovich, held a one-hour session discussing the consortium that has been created to bring together local school systems and how Niswonger Online is reaching students throughout the state and giving them the chance to earn credits in courses that could never be offered in their brick-and-mortar schools.
This was a great opportunity to connect with administrators from rural school systems throughout the U.S. and we hope to be asked to present again at next year’s symposium which will be held very close to home in Nashville, TN Oct 21st-24th 2018 at the Nashville Music City Center.

This fall Niswonger Online was excited to have our first online course consisting entirely of middle school students. Happy Valley Middle School enrolled ten 8th graders into a Niswonger Online Personal Finance course giving their students the opportunity to earn high school credit before ever stepping foot in a high school. The students pictured above did an OUTSTANDING job and everyone at Happy Valley Middle School and the Niswonger Foundation are proud of their accomplishment.
I recently met with the students to ask them about their online course. They were very honest, stating that it was not easy, but also realized important information was learned about budgeting and finance that they know will one day be used. They also discussed how they were grateful to learn more about computers and programs such as Word, Excel, and Prezi; saying that this knowledge is already helping them in other courses within the classroom. The course was taught by Chase Hicks, a long time online Personal Finance teacher for Niswonger Online. He was a great asset while working with the school and students through this new endeavor.
“I’m thankful that the Niswonger Foundation gave our students this opportunity and proud of the students for making it a success. We hope that 8th graders earning high school credit through Niswonger Online becomes the new norm.”
