Enrichment Academy (EA) updates...

We are so excited to share that we have opened 3 new EA locations around San Diego. These are located in Bonsall, Chula Vista, and Carlsbad. Please reach out to your homeschool teacher for more information. Sign up soon because space is limited.

Work Samples

The end of the Learning Period for October is on 10/19/18! Samples are due to your homeschool teacher on this day. Work samples are a great opportunity for you to share some of the amazing things your student is doing. Because these samples are the portfolio that demonstrates proof of work for your student, be sure what you submit is clear, complete, and includes the needed information. Just a few reminders about samples:

  • For TK-8 grade students, one sample must be provided from Language Arts, Math, Science OR Social Studies (History)
  • For High School students, one work sample for each course must be provided
  • On each work sample, the following information MUST be included: First and Last Name of student, sample completion date (must be within the learning period), and proof of parent review (grade, percentage, fraction, etc).

More information about work samples can be found HERE on the San Diego Parent Resource site, including templates for photo samples.

Parent Portal and Attendance

With the end of the learning period also comes the time to claim attendance. Attendance must be claimed the last day of the learning period, which is 10/19/18. This will be done online through Parent Portal. Your teacher can provide you the link needed to get you to Parent Portal as well as your username and password if you need it. Look HERE to find a helpful PDF with the steps to claim attendance, the links to Parent Portal, and a helpful video about all the new tools Parent Portal has to offer this year- including the ability to print report cards, unofficial transcripts, checking your students courses and more.

San Diego Parent Resource Site

Did you know that our San Diego Parent Resource Site is a great place to find learning tools for your child? One great tool to highlight is the Learning Styles section. There are assessments you can use to discover your child's learning style. All students have different learning styles and knowing how your child learns best will be helpful in determining how to approach homeschooling. Click here to check out these awesome tools.
