|Northern Star Online |
|Northern Star Online is a collaborative of eight independent school
districts and three educational service agencies. Building on course work
developed by each of the partners, the collaboration has been created
to further the state of Minnesota's goal of promoting high quality
Northern Star Online courses are designed to meet the needs of a
variety of learners, including high school students looking for
courses to complete credits for graduation, accommodate their school
schedule, enrich their learning, access from home, compliment home or
private school instruction.
Northern Star Online course work offers the same rigorous
student-centered curriculum as our on-campus courses --- only the
environment is different.
Northern Star Online's courses have been approved by the Minnesota
Department of Education.
Online learning is flexible, allowing students to work at their own
pace, place and time. It's not for everyone. Some students prefer the
face-to-face interactions they find in an on-campus classroom. But for
many students, online course work offers a unique opportunity to learn
in a new setting and in a new way.
Partners include: Bloomington Schools, Eden Prairie Schools, Edina
Schools, Hopkins Schools, Osseo Schools, Richfield Schools, Wayzata
Schools, Intermediate District 287, Intermediate Disstrict 916 and TIES.
