ATASCADERO HOME SCHOOL - K-8th Grade
This program offers a wonderful alternative to the traditional classroom for parents who feel they can best meet the individual needs of their student in a home-centered program. Home schooling is an exciting opportunity which allows parents the ability to expand their child's learning above and beyond what the classroom has to offer and enables children to learn at their own pace and in a manner which best suites their learning style. The district provides a highly qualified credentialed teacher to meet with parents and students regularly, design lesson plans based upon California State Standards and grade-level expectations, offer instructional support, and provide learning materials similar to what is offered in the traditional classroom at no cost to the parent. Alternative curriculum can be integrated as necessary. The responsibility of the parent is to provide the daily instruction and the teacher will verify and evaluate completed work. District and State assessments are administered to monitor growth and pinpoint areas of need.
Our Home School program offers many enrichment opportunities, including:
* Workshops in ceramics, science, sewing/quilting, art, and writing
* Individualized instructional support
* Holiday parties
* Science Fair
* Field trips
* Access to Junior High electives
* Large resource room with materials available for checkout (science
supplies and kits, math manipulatives and games, literature books)
West Mall Alternative High School Independent Study
West Mall Alternative School serves students in the Atascadero Unified School District. West Mall is designed to offer a viable alternative to the traditional high school for students whose needs are not met in the traditional school setting, yet desire consistency and academic rigor in the curriculum. Students respond well to the personalized settings and individualized learning contract approach.
All applications will be reviewed by the enrollment committee. Once accepted students must maintain a C average in all core classes, regularly attend appointments, and participate in district and state assessments. Students who miss three or more assignments, fall below a C average in their core classes, or do not participate in district and state assessments will be brought up for review and risk being withdrawn from the program.
