INFORMATION REGARDING HOME-BASED EDUCATION FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR

Home-Based Education requires the parent of the child to take over the role as the educator.  Parents are responsible for setting the goals for the child for the year, gathering the materials and resources they intend to use, and delivering the instruction and assessment for their child. This is different from “remote learning”, where the school is more closely involved with the instruction and assessment of the child.

If you choose to register your child in Home-Based Education, you must submit the required registration forms (see below).  To qualify for the Home-Based Education Grant for the purchase of educational materials ($800.00 per elementary student and $550.00 per high school student), you must have your Home-Based Education registration forms submitted by September 15, 2020 and continue in the Home-Based Education program.  This funding will be issued to families at the end of January 2021. 

Families may register in Home-Based Education at any time during the school year before May 31, 2021, but will not qualify for the Home-Based Education Grant if registering between September 16, 2020 and May 31, 2021.
