Options office hours will be more restricted going forward in the 23-24 school year. Generally, we will not be available on Tuesday and Thursday due to statewide testing. You may call or email and leave a message, and we will call you back. Please try to avoid coming in person on those days or make advanced arrangements, as we may not be available to assist you.

Options is generally open to enroll students for grades 6-8 or 11-12 any time during the year. Registration for grades 6-8 is limited to 10 students.

If you are interested in being a virtual student, please register at the middle school or high school and indicate Options on the registration form. To hold a spot for high schoolers or to be placed on a waiting list, please send an email to

Options does not have an elementary program.

Options offers two choices of learning programs for students. We will have our regular virtual option, using Imagine Edgenuity as the primary platform.

For students who need more direct support, we will offer a limited in-person/virtual hybrid program. This program will feature a regular onsite lab by arrangement, and students will have some programming choices, depending on the student level of success. These courses will be based on an individual plan and circumstances.

Options Attendance Policy

A student who does not work on a regular school day for at least 15 minutes each in a majority of classes, and actually completing activities, will be marked absent. Work Experience counts for one class automatically. Students must work in over half their classes (at least three classes) before 2:00 pm, and complete at least one assignment. If the student cannot work due to an excusable reason in their classes by 2:00, the parent can send an email to jcoone@fernridge.k12.or.us if they need to request an excused absence. Any student who is absent for 10 school days in a row will be withdrawn from school.
