As students work in their curriculum, Idaho Home Learning Academy (IHLA) asks parents to address the school’s Power Learning Goals (PLGs) in each subject area by selecting one PLG to report on every two weeks.
Parents will submit a document indicating which PLG the student has completed for that assignment, along with artifacts for each PLG. Artifacts could include, but are not limited to, student work, scanned worksheets, pictures, and audio or video files.
The student’s mentor/teacher will review the PLG form each submission period and make confirm that the artifacts are aligned to the PLGs.
Parents will choose curriculum that meets the needs of their child and is aligned to Idaho Content Standards. The objective is for parents to use the materials they are teaching, aligned to PLGs, as artifacts and not have the additional burden of providing materials outside their curriculum.
