Out of District Courses

Interested in taking an out of district course?

Though it is not required, if you are interested in taking an out of district course please follow the steps below:

For Out-of-District math courses intended for students to advance a level, RHS is currently updating the request process. We will not be accepting online math course requests until October.

For Out-of-District courses needed as a prerequisite for RHS courses for the 2023-2024 school year, the deadline for turning in Out-of-District forms is May 31. This applies to both RHS students and current 8th graders.

1. If you are interested in taking courses outside of Redmond High School we will accept credit from any OSPI Approved Provider, click here for a full list.

Below are a few OSPI approved outside providers that are commonly used by RHS students:
APEX Learning
BYU Independent Study Online
Keystone National High School Online
Market Square Education

If you are planning on taking a math class online, please read the RHS Math Policy on Online Classes.

2. Students who wish to earn credits out of district must fill out and submit 2 forms in order to seek approval from administration:

1. Appendix C – Request for Acceptance of Out of District Credit
2. Out of District Credits RHS Attachment (current RHS 9th-12th graders)    

or Out of District Credits RHS Attachment (current 8th graders)

3. For any course besides math (for current RHS students only), please turn these forms in to the Counseling Office and it will be reviewed by administration for approval. You will be notified once it is approved via email. Then, you can proceed with registering for your course.

For math courses, once the documents are complete, the student will email both documents to Ms. Ana Ilac (ailac@lwsd.org). Once a student is approved, Ms. Ilac will email student and parents to let them know they can begin the class. The student may begin their online class anytime after they are approved - they do not have to wait for summer.

Please note:
• Online courses can be expensive and the cost is the responsibility of the student/family.
• If you are a college bound athlete, NCAA expectations around out of district credit vary by provider. It is the student’s responsibility to use the NCAA Eligibility Center to determine if an out of district course is an NCAA approved core course.

4. Once you have completed the course, please provide the official transcript to your counselor. You can send it in via email, mail, fax, or drop it off in person.

Final transcripts for summer math are due to RHS by 8/15. Transcripts should be send to Megan Livermore (mlivermore@lwsd.org) or mailed to RHS, attention: Megan Livermore. Once the transcript is received, we will update the student’s RHS course request for math if there is space in the next level course.
