LEMI Education Partnership Program

2023 – 2024 School Year

In the state of Utah, LEMI offers a partnership program for students, ages 5- 18. Students who complete the following procedures, can get LEMI classes and other educational cost paid for (pending enrollment availability!)  * There is no guarantee that you will make it into the program. 

Program Overview

To participate in the our LEMI Partnership Program, eligible students will be enrolled in a public school. This Partnership Program will allow the schools to pay students’ tuition for LEMI Education courses and other educational reimbursements.

Students only need to physically go to a testing location 1-4 times per school year to take an assessment, and they do not need to live close to a charter school to qualify for the LEMI Partnership Program.  However, they do need to live in the state of Utah.

How it Works

There are three age groups when participating in the LEMI Education program.

Age 5 Kindergarten is considered Half Day so all reimbursements are half, coming to $500.

They also receive access to these programs at no cost:

  • BrainPop
  • U.E.N.

and more.

They will be enrolled in three classes: Math, Language Arts, Science or Social Studies. They will also get to be in their choice of tech courses worth $350.

6-12 students must be enrolled in at LEMI Scholar Project to be in the program!
There are a limited number of seats in the LEMI Partnership Program. Seats are awarded in the schools according to the states laws, but the earlier applications usually get in first.

It is anticipated that the number of available seats will grow each academic year. Students who attempt to enroll after all seats are taken will be placed on a Wait List, and they will be notified when a spot opens up in the program for the current or subsequent academic year. Students should be at least 5 years old by September 1st.

Immunizations  (New students only)

To enroll a student in a publicly-funded school, parents are required to submit proof of immunization for their student, or provide the required, completed exemption forms in order to be considered fully enrolled. Any immunization record provided by a licensed physician, registered nurse, or public health official will be accepted as certification of immunization. 

LEMI partnership students choose the "Direct to college or work" route.  This is so they have the flexibility to take the courses that will benefit them the most.  

State Testing 

All students of a publicly-funded school, distance learning or part-time students will need to participate in state tests.  These tests are designed to see if your student is doing ok or let you know if an area needs attention.  We understand that the test do not show all of your students learning or knowledge.  (Utah students can opt out of the SAGE testing if desired.)

The schools administer the test at many locations. They coordinate the most convenient testing site location, date and time for your family. Coordinators contact the parents before testing to schedule when and where would work best for the family.  Upon request your student can be tested for disabilities and given accommodations in testing if needed.  Please apply for testing early as it takes time to do this.

Students only need to physically go to testing from one to four times a year depending on what tests they are taking.  Some tests are given over the internet through Skype or other software.  You do not need to live near a school to be enrolled in that school, but you do need to live in Utah.

Attendance Requirement

Attendance and grades are based on participation, completion and proficiency of assignments.  However we encourage you to track your time per subject or keep a portfolio of your work for documentation purposes.  Student attendance may be tracked also as this is how some funding is awarded for the schools.

Credit and Accreditation

Because the schools are accredited, academic credit awarded at these schools is portable to other accredited schools, and recognized by colleges and universities.

Enrollment in Additional Public Schools

High school students who enroll in the LEMI Partnership Program will be able to enroll in one or two classes with one of their local district schools.  Not charter schools.  These classes do cost and use up reimbursements.(Driver's Ed does not count as a class and can come from reimbursements.)

LEMI Distance Reimbursements

Students in the LEMI Partnership Program are eligible for student reimbursements according to age and classes (Money for classes, books, seminars, field trips, etc). 

Proper registration and on-time reporting and state testing are required at the set times in order for families to receive payments.

Priority is given to those students wishing to return to the program, then to siblings of current students, and finally to new students according to the state lottery selection, usually on a first come first serve basis.

6-12 grade students can choose from the LEMI Line up of Scholar Projects:
