Student Services web-based courses are offered through Odyesseyware, and are designed to work on modern browsers and operating systems. Most students will be able to access their courses using any computer that has a current web-browser and Internet access. Visit this website to see if your browser is up-to-date.
Students are expected to be competent at using the Internet including downloading and uploading files, email and Princeton Google Apps for Education (Gmail, Google Drive, Calendar, Google Classroom, etc). Princeton Online Academy will provide an @isd477.org email account for student/teacher communication and students are expected to use their email account as the primary method for communication.
For those without a compatible computer or device, Chromebooks can be loaned to students for use while actively enrolled in Princeton Online Academy. Families are required to sign a Device Use Agreement before a device will be given to student. Click here to download a copy of the agreement. Devices can only be picked up and returned at the Student Services Office, located at Princeton High School. Office hours are generally Mon-Fri from 7:30-4:00.
For those using personal devices, those with larger screens such as Chromebooks and iPads are good choices. Mobile devices with smaller screens such as smartphones or iPods will not provide the best experience and functionality necessary for Princeton Online Academy.
While high-speed home Internet access makes the experience of learning online much more satisfying, it is not absolutely necessary. Some areas of Minnesota unfortunately do not yet have high-speed access available. For those areas that have high-speed access available, however, it is definitely the preferred type of internet access for the program. Princeton School District provides wireless Internet access at all face-to-face campuses and drop-in centers in Princeton, MN for students to use. If you are enrolling fully online (not supplemental) please take your access to Internet into account and plan for a backup (ie. going to a library, local business with free wifi, friend/relative’s house, etc) if you are unable to reach our drop-in center.
