The Indiana Course Access Network is a collection of projects with the same goal: provide students with flexible coursework options and expand course offerings. These projects include the Indiana Course Access Portal (iCAP) and Well-Rounded Course Access (WRCA).
Indiana Course Access Portal (iCAP)
The Indiana Course Access Portal (iCAP) serves as a course repository of over 200 virtual course options from seven different course providers who have been approved by the Indiana Department of Education. iCAP provides options to help high schools meet students’ individual needs, expand learning opportunities, and diversify their curricula. iCAP is intended to be supplementary with students remaining enrolled in their main school.
iCAP was first introduced as HEA 1007 in 2017 then adopted as Indiana Code 20-30-16.
Well-Rounded Course Access (WRCA)
As part of the U.S. Department of Education’s Expanding Access to Well-Rounded Courses grant program, the Indiana Department of Education has contracted with Indiana University to establish the Well-Rounded Course Access (WRCA) program. The aim of Indiana’s WRCA program is to create a network of schools that will deliver 90 high-quality, supplementary virtual courses that are designed and delivered by certified Indiana teachers. WRCA increases opportunities for students to take courses that may not be offered at their main school or work with their schedule, as well as diversify their curricula. The primary goal of WRCA is to increase access to a wide variety of courses for students across the state.
