Department of Personalized Learning Opportunities
The Department of Personalized Learning Opportunities seeks to provide choice regarding place, time, pace, and path with considerations for the unique needs and goals of each student. Our multi-faceted approach allows us to provide support to multiple departments in the district.
The KISD iChoose Virtual Learning program is designed to address the needs of students by providing opportunities for students to complete foundation courses in CTE pathways, accelerate completion of language acquisition courses, pursue their interests during the school day, and prepare them for success in online coursework as they continue their education past high school.
Facilitated Virtual (Grades 7-12): includes an in-class, certified mentor/facilitator with a remote Keller ISD teacher who is certified in the content area.
Virtual (Grades 8-12): students are able to have control over place and time with courses that are available to them 24/7 with a remote Keller ISD teacher who is certified in the content area. Courses are offered in 9-week accelerated sessions in early spring and 6-week accelerated sessions in late spring and summer. High School students also have the option of scheduling virtual courses into their schedule as a period of their day which can be completed off-campus.
Blended (Grades 11-12): student receives both online and traditional instruction. Student must attend class three times per week, with flex time the remaining two days of the week. Flex time can be used for small group instruction, tutoring, and remediation.
Accelerated (Grades 3-8): student remains with their current grade cohort while pursuing content above grade level. In addition to a traditional model, options include virtual and remote learning models.
iChoose Flex (KCAL/CHS Grade 12): This program is for seniors in advanced CTE classes at KCAL or who are involved in fine arts, athletics, or CTE programs on their campus. Students attend school in-person for their electives and complete the rest of their coursework online through Keller ISD iChoose, TxVSN, and/or TCC. Schedules for students are highly personalized to meet the needs of each student in the program.
iChoose Accelerate (TCHS Grades 9-11): This program provides opportunities for incoming students to continue to participate in elective programs without having to make a choice to eliminate one due to scheduling issues. Students are able to accelerate their learning to provide room in their schedules for future years so that they can pursue combinations of elective programs that are important to them.
