Homeschooling under an
Independent Study Homeschool Charters
There are different types of charter schools. Not all charters are homeschool charters or offer homeschooling options. There are brick & mortar charters that you see in your neighborhood such as Literacy First, Liberty High School, Steele Canyon High School... These are all charters that operate as a normal school.
Then there are hybrid charter schools. These charters combine brick & mortar attendance with partial homeschooling. Some allow you to choose your own curriculum & some operate similar to a normal school where you cannot choose your own curriculum & you follow the same curriculum as the rest of the class.
Then there are Independent Study Homeschool Charters. These are charters that operate without a brick & mortar. They usually allow you choice in curriculum or at least a choice of approved curriculum. They assign you an educational coach to help you in your choices, help answer any questions, support you & guide you each year by meeting you once a month to go over what you are teaching your children & to make sure you are meeting standards. This type of Homeschool charter will allot a certain amount of funding for you to use towards curriculum, outside classes or extracurricular activities from approved vendors that educationally benefit the child. The funding can range from $1200-$3,800 a year.
