Building a customized program with credentialed teachers

Curriculum
The Campbell Union School District home school program uses a combination of state adopted text books, supplemental literature and online references.  Each family will be provided with a number of educational websites, both free and fee-based for parents to use to supplement the core curriculum which will be provided to you.

District Adopted Textbooks
Quality and Currency of Textbooks and Other Instructional Materials.

District Curriculum committees select the majority of textbooks and other instructional materials with representatives from every school and grade level. Purchase of textbooks follows the State adoption cycle. All textbooks series are recommended by the State and are purchased with State Instructional Materials money. Every student has a current textbook in the basic subject areas and every classroom has calculators, dictionaries, maps/globes, and math manipulatives.
