Frequently Asked Questions


Is it too late to enroll in Online Academy?

No, it is not too late.  Space is limited in some grade levels.  After you complete the enrollment application we will be in touch about availability.  Apply for enrollment here.

Can my child transfer from the Online Academy into regular in-person instruction (or vice-versa) during the school year?

K-5th: Students are committing to a full year of online learning. 

Is it possible to request a hybrid option?

Students enrolled in DDOA full time can request to take any specific course in-person at their home school.  This is subject to availability. Contact us at to request an in-person course.

School Format

Will there be video virtual classroom lessons? Will there be recordings in case a student can’t make it to the live portion?

K-5th: Yes. We will have scheduled synchronous and asynchronous class time, much like CDL education in 2020-21. You can make arrangements with your teacher for missing the virtual class. See our K-5th online class schedule on the handbook page.

How will attendance be taken? Will there be an advisory component?

K-5th: Teachers will take daily attendance in their virtual classroom.

What materials will be provided and how will the curriculum and materials be made available?

All DDOA students will be issued a DDSD chromebook as well as any necessary school supplies. We will distribute materials at our Back to School event at the beginning of the year.  If you miss this, you are able to pick up supplies from our DDOA Office – 1400 SE 135th Ave – Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30-2:30 pm.

How will students with an IEP receive their needed supports?

An IEP case manager will support the students and families to ensure the goals and objectives are met through online learning. If the goals and objectives cannot be met online, the student will attend in person courses as needed.


Will the kids still have the opportunity to go to their physical school for events?

Yes, students are welcome to attend events at their home school.

Will students participate in a graduation ceremony? 

Students in K-5 will be invited to attend an end of the year celebration at DDOA.
