Course Approval Process

PLATO courses will earn Staples High School credit and appear on the student’s transcript along with the designation (online). The student will receive a letter grade for the course, and the grade will be factored into the grade point average as an elective course (no level weight). For students considering college athletics, Staples PLATO courses are not currently approved as core courses by the NCAA.

The student will discuss the potential course with his or her parent/guardian and school counselor, then the school counselor will request approval from the grade-level assistant principal and/or director of guidance. The school counselor will work with the Personalized Learning Teacher to enroll the student in the PLATO course. Contact your school counselor for course approval and contract information.  You can begin the contract process here.
