Parents can propose courses the Certificated Teacher can add to the Student Learning Plan in the ALE application. The process involves several steps.
- If desired, course templates can be created and made available to parents
- The parent completes the course proposal form while logged into the application
- Certificated Teacher reviews the proposed course and makes any necessary edits
- The course is then added to the Student Learning Plan by the Certificated Teacher
Creating a Course Template for Parents
A course template can be created and made available to parents. While creating a Course, check the Is Parent Template field on the Course Details Tab. Reference the ALE Application: Creating a Course help document for complete directions.
Parent Completes Course Proposal
Parents can submit a course proposal using a predefined template or start from scratch and build an entire course to propose. While the Propose Course interface will look much the same, parents will have the ability to edit/submit data in the following fields in a default setup:
- Course name
- District Approved Curriculum
- Instructional Materials Needed
- Average Hours Per Week
- Learning Activities
Certificated Teacher Reviews and Edits Proposed Courses
The Certificated Teacher assigned to a plan can review a list of proposed courses submitted by parents in the SLP Proposed Courses screen, located in the Subjects/Courses drop-down menu for each Student Learning Plan.
Row Action gears allow you to open the course and edit or delete it.
You can see how many parent-proposed courses exist that have not yet been added to student learning plans on the My Student Learning Plans and All Student Learning Plans pages.
Certificated Teacher Adds Courses to SLP
To add a parent's proposed course to the Student Learning Plan, navigate to the SLP Proposed Courses menu under the Subjects/Courses drop-down in the Student Learning Plan.
Using the Row Action gear for any one course, choose Add to SLP.
A subject course record will be created automatically and added to the SLP Courses Table for this student. Courses added to the learning plan will be indicated in the Is on SLP column on the far right.
