Homeschool Options

Home School
It can be a sensible decision to homeschool your middle grade child. In order for the home school chief administrator to obtain a DEC to issue to the student, the North Carolina home school must be currently registered with the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education and be currently meeting all North Carolina laws governing the operation of the home school.

If a student is home schooled in New York or Hawaii and does not graduate from a high school, the local district or state board of education must review the student’s home school record and provide a written letter indicating that the student has met the requirements for graduation.

Home-schooled children must be tested before the end of grades 3, 5, 8, and 10. The end of the school year is defined before August 15. If the student never attended public or private school, the student must be tested before August 15 following the end of grade 3. If the student was withdrawn from public or private school, the first required examination is not administered within the first 18 months of home schooling even if during that 18-month period the student is in grades 3, 5, 8 or 10.

For those children whose parents decided to homeschool out of a desire to better education, a 2003 study found statistical significance between traditionally schooled and homeschooled students scores on standardized tests of writing, reading, and mathematics.

Home School
Penn welcomes applications from students who chart non-conventional academic paths, including those educated through home schooling. There are full-time virtual or online charter schools where students learn at home from teachers over their computers and parents act more as educational guides, flexible setups where students attend a traditional school part time and home school part time, and education savings account programs , in which some states allow families to use the per-pupil funding allocated to their children on approved home-schooling expenses.

Students in grades 6-8 can choose from several elective offerings in those subjects and more. Our Home School Program will be offered Mondays from October 7, 2019, through May 18, 2020, not including holidays. All students enrolled in an open home school listed with DNPE must be tested annually.

The U.S. Department of Education estimated that by 2003 there were 103,000 black home schoolers (see Figure 2). Nonprofits, including the Children’s Scholarship Fund , founded in 1998, have provided vouchers to help low-income families afford private schools, and some are using the money to home school.

Homeschool On

Families are offered two ways to homeschool—through Lighthouse Christian Academy or through Independent Homeschool. G.S. 115C-288(a) empowers public school principals to grade and classify pupils in their respective schools. School districts around the country are experimenting with programs that allow students to home school for part of the day but take certain classes at the local public school.

Designing a Homeschool Classroom in Any Space

If you’ve decided to take on the task of homeschooling your children, you’ll need to designate a specific space in your home as the classroom. But what if you don’t have an extra room to use? You can get creative and incorporate learning materials into the design of your living room, and you don’t have to sacrifice style to do it.

Rethink Visual Aids

Use a world map wall clock instead of taking up an entire wall with a full-sized map. Embrace the chalkboard trend by mounting one to your wall, then framing it out with a tasteful trim that matches the rest of the room. You can also create and print your own flyers with rules or inspirational phrases using colors that coordinate with the feel of your other decor.

Purchase Unconventional Desks

You don’t have to purchase small children’s desks and chairs for your kids. Besides being an eyesore, these types of desks can be outgrown in a short amount of time. Instead, purchase a larger, adult-sized desk that can seat multiple students during the school day, but functions as a workspace for mom or dad in the evening. Even an end table can be used for learning!

Utilize Stylish Storage

You’re going to need plenty of storage space to house your curriculum, learning aids and school supplies. Choose storage solutions that are made for living spaces but can also work for classroom materials. Even plastic bins and drawers now come in more tasteful colors and styles. You can also use paint, fabric or decoupage to update a bin or cart.

There are plenty of ways to create a kid-friendly space without sacrificing your own personal style and tastes. While you may have to make a few sacrifices, you can still design a homeschool classroom that’s visually appealing to everyone who uses it.… Read More..
