Utah's Statewide Online Education Program

Canyons Virtual High School is a proud participant in Utah's Statewide Online Education Program (SOEP). This program was established by the 2011 Utah Legislature to help eligible students earn credit toward high school graduation via publicly-funded online courses. Beginning with the 2016-17 school year, Utah students may replace up to six (6) of their traditional, face-to-face course credits with six course credits earned online. Upon request, the State Board of Education may also allow the student to enroll in online courses for more than six online credits if the online courses better meet the academic goals of the student.

SOEP requires that students sign up for classes no later than the first 10 days of the term, unless the student does not have a full class schedule at his or her high school. Students with less than a full schedule can add online courses at any time. Additionally, students enrolled in a home school can register any time. Regardless, online courses must be recorded in each student's College and Career Readiness Plan, and require the signature of a counselor and parent/guardian. The 2013 FAQ found here and the Utah Administrative Code that defines the Statewide Online Education Program may also provide guidance for you in understanding program specifics.
