If you have applied, you will receive an invite to the orientation the Friday before the orientation.
Yes, the online orientation compliments the face to face orientation. Students are required to work through the materials before they attend the orientation at the ESC. This orientation familiarizes the student with the program through videos, activities, and short readings. This online orientation is on our Schoology page. The access code is: MM7QG-WFCH
Students are limited to two courses at a time. We are offering a full menu of courses from History to Math to CTE credit to Spanish.

This works particularly well for credit recovery classes in which the student has previously taken the class but failed to earn credit.
We also provide students access to computers and teachers Monday through Thursday between the hours of 2:00 and 6:00 PM at the Edmonds ESC (20420 68 Ave W). This drop in lab is used by students to get face-to-face help from a teacher, meet and socialize with other online students, discuss issues they are having in the program with staff and get a little extra motivation form our highly dedicated staff.
