Online Charter Schools & Home School Contact Information

Are you interested in other educational options outside of Lincoln County School District? Check out this 1-page information sheet that describes different Oregon Learning Options. There is often confusion about which programs are considered public, private, or home school options, and we hope this summary will help make these options clear. If you decide to pursue one of these options, below is the contact information you will need to communicate your intent to enroll outside of LCSD:

  • *Oregon Online Public Charter Schools: Email your transfer request to: (preferred) or FAX to 541-265-3060 attn: Vince Dye
  • Home School: Visit the LBL ESD Home School site for information
  • Private School: No need to notify LCSD; once enrolled, the private school can send a record request to your former LCSD school, if applicable

The “District Notice of Intent to Enroll” forms are from the Oregon Online Public Charter schools themselves. In other cases, the parents just need to send LCSD a “Letter of Intent.” This letter needs to list:

  • Student’s name
  • Student’s grade
  • Name of the school that they want to enroll in
  • Parent’s name
  • Parent’s physical address

*Please note: As of January 2024, Lincoln County School District has yet to reach the 3% allotment for allowing online charter school enrollment, and we are approving any transfer requests per ORS 338.125(4).  LCSD Compass Online School, which is not an online charter school, is an excellent place for online learning as part of LCSD. If interested in Compass, please get in touch with Shannon Thurber for more information at 541-265-4280 or
