FAQs
How do I sign up?
If you are a resident of the Campbell Union School District you will need to bring proof of residency, your child’s birth certificate and immunization record to our district office located at 155 N. 3rd Street in Campbell. Request an enrollment packet and let them know you are choosing the Home School program.

If you are not a resident of CUSD you will need to go to your home school district and request an interdistrict transfer and tell them you would like to enroll in the Campbell Home School Program. Request a copy of the transfer and bring it to our office along with the information listed above.

When does school start?
The homeschool program follows the traditional school year calendar. School begins on August 19th for the 2013-2014 school year. The teacher will be in touch with you in late August to schedule your first appointment and check out your books to you.

Will my child receive letter grades and a report card?
In Campbell Union School District we do not issue letter grades until middle school at any of our school sites. We use a standards-based reporting form that provides you with feedback as to how your child is doing attaining grade level standards.
In the homeschool program students and parents will receive regular feedback at each monthly meeting with the teacher. Report cards will not be issued by the homeschool teacher.

What work will I need to turn in?
You will need to turn in work samples from the four main content areas: Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies at each meeting. You will bring all work that you have completed with you and the teacher will choose representative original samples to place in your child’s folder of records.

Will my child get school support services in the Homeschool program?
Unfortunately, students enrolled in homeschool are not able to take part in services offered at school sites such as counseling, resource programs, additional tutorials, etc. This is one reason you want to choose the program carefully if your child has special needs that can’t be met in a homeschool environment. Any student who is identified as needing special education must have it written in their IEP that homeschool instruction is the optimum learning environment for the child.
