Valley district's home school programs may expand

With its first year almost complete, the Parent Partnership program in Snoqualmie Valley School District begins registering families for next year on Wednesday, April 17 in the school district office, 8001 Silva Ave. S.E., Snoqualmie. Registration for the program, for elementary-aged children in the district, is 6:15 to 6:45 p.m., followed by an informational meeting from 6:50 to 7:30 p.m. on expanding the program to include students in grades 6 through 8.

The program launched last fall to provide home-schooling families with resources, technology and support, including curriculum planning. About 20 students are involved this year, in Kindergarten through grade 5. The program offers a variety of classes in reading, writing and science that students can attend twice a week at North Bend Elementary School, in addition to other resources.

For next year, the school district is considering expanding the program to include middle school-aged students. Interested parents are encouraged to come to the April 17 meeting to get answers to any questions they may have, and to express their interest in adding grades 6 to 8 to the program.
