Falcon Homeschool Program FAQ

  • Will there a cost for my student to attend?

    Posted by:

    While there may be isolated small expenses for supplies, field trips or special events, there is no cost to families for enrollment. FHP is a publicly funded program and students who are enrolled are funded as part time public students. Since they are only part time, students retain their homeschool status and parents are still required to adhere to the Colorado homeschool law.

  • If we enroll, will my student be required to take the PARCC/CMAS tests?

    Posted by:

    No, as part time students, FHPers retain their homeschool status and homeschoolers are not required to participate in the mandatory state testing program. Home educators will want to carefully study the Colorado Homeschool Law to ensure that they are in compliance with testing and evaluation requirements for homeschooled students.

  • Can I drop off all of my students in grades K-7th on the same enrichment program day?

    Posted by:

    Yes! We recognize that it is most convenient for homeschool families to take advantage of an enrichment program that serves most or all of their children at once. Because of this, students in grades K-7 are served on either of our enrichment program days (Monday, Tuesday or Thursday).

    There is no requirement for uniforms at our program. In general, we will trust students and their families to use good judgment and common sense when dressing for school days. Students seeking guidance for what is and isn’t okay to wear are encouraged to consult the District 49 dress code guidelines in the Code of Conduct. If ever there is a dispute, we will use this code as our guide.
