Here are some things you can do to evaluate your student’s current learning environment:
- Find out how much your child learned last year – use scores from standardized or in class testing or ask yourself - Has the process begun for further development of their creative, evaluating, and analyzing skills?
- Talk to your child about his/her experiences at school - Are they asking questions?
- Ask your school’s principal/director to explain his/her expectations for growth of your students skills
- Look at greatschools.org to see how students in your child’s school performed in subjects like reading, writing and math.
If you are not satisfied with the answers to the above questions, start to look up different school choice options that might be available to you.
- Use the State Department’s website for a listing of schools available to you
- Find out if your state allows children to cross over into other areas – Open Enrollment
- Look at private, on-line, charter and magnet schools
- Consider Homeschooling- millions of families choose this approach and find it very effective - Are you not sure if this is something you can do? We are here to help.
Remember that you have options.
