Enrollment and Attendance FAQs

Who is eligible to attend Ohio Digital Learning School (ODLS)?

Students ages 16–21 in grades 9–12 who reside in Ohio are eligible for full-time enrollment.

What does it cost to attend ODLS?

Because ODLS is a public school program, it is publicly funded. ODLS provides an Ohio-certified teacher and instructional materials for the program. However, students and families will be responsible for providing some consumable materials (such as printer ink and paper).

What is the attendance policy?

ODLS works with students and families toward a positive attendance record to meet the state requirement of 1,001 instructional hours per year. Required hours of attendance will be prorated for late enrollees. 

Can I 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. Parents are encouraged to contact their teacher if they plan a vacation that does not coordinate with the school calendar.
