Meet your Homeschool Teacher (HST)

Hello and Welcome!

Welcome back to those of you I have worked with already, and welcome to those of you who are new to my class. I am looking forward to supporting you on your homeschooling journey. My name is Alycia Scott, your HST, and I am so excited about the upcoming 2019-2020 school year! Inspire is such a wonderful school and has so much to offer.


It’s time to start thinking about the 19-20 school year with us. I have included LOTS of information for you below. I will be reaching out as the school year approaches. During our first call, we will review some of these items and I will answer any questions you may have.

2019-2020 School Year- Enrichment Adventures Update

The Enrichment Adventures (EA) is an optional program where students can meet in person once a week. They will be grouped by grade level and be with the same students and EA teacher for the duration of the year. This is geared toward socialization and cooperative learning, but also academic!


We know many of you are anxiously awaiting to enroll for the Enrichment Adventures program for the 2019-20 school year. We are excited to announce that we have been working on a new registration process and system that will be more streamlined. We are currently finalizing the system and getting ready to roll it out. Enrichment Adventures registration will open in May.


Each student who enrolls in the Enrichment Adventures program for the 2019-20 school year will have a fee of $125 per semester deducted from their funds for their participation in the Enrichment Adventures program. These deducted funds will go directly toward funding our amazing Enrichment Adventures teaching staff. The Enrichment Adventures teachers go above and beyond in their efforts to create a wonderful classroom experience for their students. This small deduction from student funds will help to compensate them for their time and dedication to this program.


Further details regarding exact Enrichment Adventures locations and registration for the 2019-20 school year will be shared in the coming weeks.

Inspire Vendors

Inspire has a lot of approved vendors that you can use your funds on. Here is the link to our vendor search engine.

Vendor List

*HST Tip- I usually search by city to see what is available near me. There are a lot of cool vendors that I never would have thought to search for.

Your Favorite Vendor not Yet an Approved Vendor?

Requesting a Service Vendor

We have the most success when the parent reaches out to the potential vendor first. Letting them know that your child’s lessons or classes could be covered with educational funds and could bring more students their way can spark the interest.

The first step is to fill out the Vendor Application Survey. This can be filled out by the vendor or the parent. If you (the parent) has requested the vendor, we will reach out to you to let you know they have been approved. We will also let you know if they are not interested.

Please feel free to reach out to the VendorWelcomeTeam@InspireSchools.org to get updates on vendors

I Can Statements

The “I Can How to Guide” document will show how you can use “I Can Statements” to help your child and ensure that they are on track for their grade level. These guides are here to help you if you need direction, or if you merely want to see what other students at the same grade level are learning throughout the year. If you would like to check off the standards you complete with your child, fantastic. If you don’t, that's great too. I am merely presenting you with an awesome tool that could help further your homeschooling goals. This information will be sent at the beginning of the year.
