Out-of-State Registration / Enrollment 2016-2017

» Out-of-State Registration Form

NOTE: This page is designed for printing, if desired. (Approx. 4 pages)


It is the school's responsibility to ensure that students have completed all prerequisites prior to registration. In some upper level courses KET requires students to take an entrance exam. The school must meet all classroom technical requirements of the courses (including, but not limited to: Internet connectivity, computer requirements, skype capabilities, and telephone lines) prior to the first day of classes. KET Distance Learning courses are state-approved, taught by certified teachers and are eligible for high school credit (one Carnegie Unit per course) from the school.


It is the responsibility of the school administration to ensure that all equipment is installed and operational prior to the start of classes.

  • Color television or smartboard if using DVDs (does not apply to Virtual Physics Lab)
  • DVD player or smartboard, or individual computers with CD/DVD drive if you are using CDs/DVDs (does not apply to Virtual Physics Lab)
  • Private phone line with telephone and/or computer with Skype capabilities including web camera and microphone (does not apply to Virtual Physics Lab)
  • Computer(s) with Internet connection and access to Adobe Flash Player, QuickTime, Windows Media Player and/or RealMedia Player
  • Active subscription to Discovery Education for Spanish 1 and Spanish 2.


All textbooks must be ordered by the schools. Allow at least 4 weeks for shipping. Textbook ordering information is located on the Course Description pages. Publishers may increase the cost of textbooks and shipping without notifying KET.

It is strongly recommended that the school principal or assistant principal serve as the coordinator. It is essential that KET be able to contact the school coordinator throughout the year. As part of the responsibilities/requirements, the school coordinator must:

  • Be physically located at the school.
  • Serve as overall administrator for all courses used by the school.
  • Select and assist facilitators.
  • Recruit students for distance learning courses and coordinate the registration process.
  • Monitor organizational, operational and technical aspects of distance learning courses.

The Kentucky Department of Education does not require course facilitators be certified teachers (with the exception of the Humanities resource). State law requires that the facilitator remain in the classroom at all times during the class period. Other responsibilities are:

  • Maintain classroom order and discipline.
  • Make sure that the student has regularly scheduled access to an internet connected computer, and to a telephone or preferably Skype or video conferencing capable computer for all the language courses (German, Latin, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese).
  • Monitor online homework, quiz and test taking in order to ensure academic integrity; in some courses print and administer/proctor paper test taking.
  • Access and report grades and progress of the students to school officials.
  • Discourage academic dishonesty (plagiarism, use of online translators, etc.).
  • Assist students with work and provide guidance and support for students, as well as encouragment to contact online teachers with problems, questions, and concerns.
  • Copy materials downloaded from the web site for students.
  • Initiate contact with KET to resolve all technical difficulties.
  • Communicate with online teacher by phone, Skype or video conference, and through electronic mail.
  • Be familiar with the technology used in the classroom such as speakerphone, DVD player/smartboard, and computers with web cameras for Skype or video conferencing capability.
  • Serve as an ambassador between parents and KET, sharing concerns with the online teacher and encouraging parents to contact the online teacher with questions or concerns.
  • Encourage students to work hard and do their best.

Some courses are more demanding of the facilitator. If you have questions or concerns about the level of responsibility, please contact the individual course instructors. The phone number and e-mail address of each instructor is listed in the Course Description pages, or you may call KET at 1-800-333-9764.

The successful distance learning student...

  • welcomes challenges.
  • benefits positively from cooperative learning.
  • appreciates self-directed learning opportunities and can take initiative.
  • strives to communicate clearly.

Each course uses student/teacher interactivity to bring the curriculum to life. Students are expected to participate in all forms of interactivity including telephone, tutor sessions for language courses, and other Internet applications, including moodle, social networking sites, and blogs.

Please review the School Calendar. It is the school coordinator's responsibility to reconcile any differences between the KET schedule and individual student schedules before enrolling students. Call KET 1-800-333-9764 to investigate resolution of scheduling conflicts.
