    Default Is it possible to use public school for a portion of classes

    I only want to home school my daughter for 1 or 2 classes. Does anyone know if this is possible? She enjoys school too much to be home schooled all day but I need to get her caught up.

    It is usually all or nothing, but check your state laws to make sure.
    Joyfully,

    I found the info and incase anyone else has the same question I am positing the info from website Part-Time Enrollment is Guaranteed for Homeschoolers

    Part-Time Enrollment is Guaranteed for Homeschoolers Our state law and your tax dollars guarantee part-time enrollment privileges for your homeschooled student in public school. This includes part-time enrollment in Public School Alternative Learning Experience Programs. When you participate in public schools on a part-time basis, you retain your Home-Based Instruction status.
    You might ask, why would a homeschooler want to participate in public schools part-time? Participating part time means that you may take advantage of the resources and classes offered by your district and still be in total control of your child's education. You, not the teacher, would set your educational goals and decide when, where and what assessments would be given. You, not the district, would keep your child's educational records. And, since you were a homeschooling parent, your child would not have to take the WASL.
    How can you take advantage of the part-time enrollment option? RCW 28A.150.350 Part-Time Students -- Defined -- Enrollment Authorized, section (2) is the law that guarantees part-time enrollment for privately schooled and homeschooled students.
    The WACs (Washington Administrative Codes), or rules, that administers the Part-Time Student law are in Chapter WAC 392-134 Finance -- Apportionment for Part-Time Public School Attendance. It details how part-time enrollment is administered. Of interest to homeschoolers are three WACs in that chapter:
    WAC 392-134-010 Attendance Rights of Part-Time Public School
    WAC 392-134-020 Provision of Educational Program to Part-time Public School Students -- Reports -- Sites
    WAC 392-134-030 Compliance With Rules as a Condition of State Funding
    The Attendance Rights WAC states very clearly that part-time enrollment must be allowed. The Provision of Educational Program WAC states that courses must be provided to part-time students at the same level and quality as for full time students. And the Compliance With Rules WAC talks about the financial penalties the district must bear if they do not allow part-time enrollment.

    Default Part time school

    By law a home-based student is allowed access to any public school for instructional classes or non-instructional services which are referred to as ancillary services (RCW 28A.150.350, WAC 392-134). My son will be participating in at least 1 course at the local middle school. This makes both of us happy because he will still feel like he's with friends from the neighborhood and relieves me from teaching a subject I am not familiar with.

    Default Parent Partnership / Alternative Learning Experience

    My daughter goes to Three Rivers Home Link a Parent Partnership with our school district. She takes about 10-12 hours of classes a week. Each class (7-12 kids) is an hour and you can choose your classes. Science, lego robotics, bowling, Colonial America, writing, etc. She is taught the core classes at home but these are workshops that she enjoys and learns by hands on experience. She has a school she can call her own and enjoys seeing her friends. Great place for parents to share information. We also have a consultant/teacher we are in contact with all the time to make sure we meet state requirements and to give us guidance in the areas we need help. We choose this ALE program because of learning issues - she needed one on one time more often and she was not getting that in a traditional school. I wish more people knew about these programs because it sure makes the child enjoy learning.
