IOAPA mentors, site coordinators, schools, and students often have questions about IOAPA’s policies and procedures, or are looking for guidance regarding student eligibility or course selection. We’ve compiled answers to many of these questions on the “Support Materials” section of our website. Presented below is a sampling of the information you’ll find.
- IOAPA Handbook: All policies related to IOAPA can be found in the handbook. In addition, the handbook offers information about supporting IOAPA students, seeking additional help, and a Student Readiness Checklist. This is essential information for new IOAPA mentors, and a useful reference for all mentors and site coordinators.
- Middle School Questions: Answers to common questions about IOAPA for middle school can be found in our collection of blog posts, linked directly from this page. There is some especially useful information from previous mentors about how to solve logistical challenges, such as assigning credit.
- Info Night Presentation: This resource can be used to share information about IOAPA with school personnel, parents, and students who might be interested in offering and/or enrolling in IOAPA courses. Now is a great time to consider hosting an Info Night, while parents and students have time to consider signing up for fall courses before the end of the school year.
- Infographics: Also on this page, you’ll find infographics presenting course data and recommendations. These can be used to inform course selection for students. In some cases, such as the computer science course graphics, they also offer tips for mentors.
