Overview

Indiana Department of Education was awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Elementary and Secondary Education to support school corporations’ efforts to develop distance-learning opportunities, expand course offerings, and ensure students have access to a broad range of courses, including advanced and career/technical courses.

Indiana recognizes that students in our state may not have equitable access to elective courses, such as computer science, Advanced Placement, dual credit, Career and Technical Education, world languages, fine arts, and other courses that help provide a well-rounded education. The Indiana Course Access Network will expand learning opportunities for all students in Indiana by providing opportunities to participate in virtual courses beyond the core academics to enhance their K-12 experience.

Students

How can the Indiana Course Access Network help you? You can take a class that may not be offered at your school but is offered virtually at another school in Indiana. 

Example: You go to school at High School A and you are interested in taking Introduction to Computer Science, but High School A isn’t able to offer the course. However, High School B offers the course through the Indiana Course Access Network. You could take Introduction to Computer Science through High School B virtually. Thanks to technology, you are able to take Introduction to Computer Science from a teacher at High School B and earn the high school credit!
