Students register separately for Network Days (pay separately) and may float from our hybrid homeroom to Network Day courses on the main campus.
WHY HYBRID SCHOOL?
Homeschooling and alternative education needs looks different in every household. The purpose of our program is to provide curriculum support and consistency in learning for core subjects in reading, writing and mathematics while also providing a social environment for students to engage in meaningful and educational activities in elective subjects.
Hybrid school does not replace the role of the parent as the responsible and primary educator in the home. Hybrid school is not a private school or intended to take the place of a public, private or charter school option. Hybrid school is more closely aligned with an enrichment program or "tutoring" service.
Arkansas State "Intent to Enroll" homeschooling form is required for families choosing to homeschool while utilizing our hybrid programs.
Our hybrid program is ideal for:
1. Families looking for core subject support. Reading/language arts, math, writing and science.
2. Parents needing part time, in-class options due to work, home or other scheduling/life conflicts that ensures meaningful work is accessible and facilitated consistently.
3. Youth looking for classroom/ social experiences that allow a wide range of subjects while still leaving the parent as the primary educator.
4. Any household looking for opportunities to enhance, support or supplement their homeschool with an unique classroom experience and access to multi-sensory learning opportunities.
WHAT CURRICULUM IS USED?
Families may provide their own curriculum and/or take advantage of authentic as well as Montessori-inspired lessons curated for the classroom. Materials rotate according to the need and ages in the hybrid program.
Choice Education Network, Inc will default to Logic of English (LOE), Math-U-See (MUS) and Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) for students not bringing their materials from home. These curricula provide easy "benchmark" learning in the classroom and provide an easy transition in and out of the classroom setting with continuity of instruction and language. Families choosing to continue lessons in the home utilizing LOE, MUS and IEW curriculum will see a near seamless transition from class to home when following the curriculum guidelines. Alternative options are available and are discussed in the registration interview.
Families are required to obtain their own teachers manuals and student workbooks for home use if they plan to continue lessons in the home. it is assumed that families will "educate their own way" outside of the hybrid classroom. Guides will provide suggested at-home review work upon request or as agreed upon during the enrollment process..
Montessori, Logic of English and Math U See are Orton-Gillingham learning models and work well for students requiring the multi-sensory approach to learning.
Most children and especially those with "learning different" needs, THRIVE in multi-sensory learning environments where movement and the freedom to explore are all part of the classroom experience.
HOW ARE ASSESSMENTS GIVEN?
In short, they are not. Children are unable to progress to the next skill without first mastering their current skill/lesson. Assessments in the K-3 environment occur naturally within the lessons. Grades 4th + will complete assessments and tests as instructed in the curriculum and results sent to parents. Final grades are determined by the parent for their homeschool records.
HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE?
Our classroom will use BAND APP where access to photos, digital lesson materials, calendar and chat features are all available. Individual reports can be sent by request and as agreed upon during the enrollment interview.
HOW DO I ENROLL & AT WHAT LEVEL?
Enrollment is by interview only. Please CALL or EMAIL our director for an assessment/placement evaluation and to complete registration. "Grade levels" are not verbalized in the classroom.
K-3 Students: Complete the assessments for Logic of English and Math-U-See PRIOR to your interview. PLEASE PRINT AND RETAIN THESE RESULTS as our teacher will need a copy.
