Enrollment and Attendance FAQs

Who is eligible to attend Idaho Technical Career Academy (ITCA)?

Any student in grades 9–12 who resides in Idaho is eligible for full-time enrollment.

Can I enroll my child in both ITCA and another school?

Yes. ITCA offers enrollment to high school students currently attending an Idaho high school or approved charter school. Students are eligible to participate in dual enrollment with other publically funded schools in Idaho as required by Idaho Code 33-203. Dual enrollment opportunities are subject to ITCA and local district policies and procedures.

"Full Time" Dual Enrollment is defined as a student attending ITCA more than 4 (four) hours per school day. This situation is not common, but is used if the cooperating school does not collect funding, or, if a student is taking 1 or 2 courses in a traditional homeschool setting. "Full Time" Dual Enrolled students have the opportunity to accept or decline the use of a school computer and printer and follow the same Internet service provider (ISP) subsidy guidelines as fully enrolled ITCA students.

"Part Time" Dual Enrollment is defined as a student attending ITCA more than 2½ (two and a half) hours but less than or equal to 4 (four) hours per school day. The most common “Part Time” Dual Enrollment situation reflects 3 courses with ITCA and 3 courses with the cooperating school. "Part Time" Dual Enrolled students will not be provided with a computer, printer, or Internet service subsidy.

What does it cost to attend ITCA?

Because ITCA is a public school program, there is no tuition. ITCA provides a state-certified teacher and all instructional materials for the program. However, students and families will be responsible for providing some consumable materials (such as printer ink and paper).

What is the attendance policy?

ITCA works with families toward a positive attendance record to meet their student's required number of 180 instructional days.

Can I take a vacation during the school year?

The school calendar includes school "holidays" or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. Parents are encouraged to contact their teacher if they plan a vacation that does not coordinate with the school calendar.
