Idaho Service Provider Applications will be accepted by the State Department of Education at any time. Please allow approximately two weeks (or ten work days) for courses to be visible on the site from when the electronic application is received. Approval, review, and rating of curriculum is not required as quality is the responsibility of the originating district's school board or local education agency (LEA).

Course Approval - Course approval is based upon the process outlined in the Idaho State Board of Education Rule.
