Home Study Options
How can VTVLC support my home study curriculum?
Thank you for stopping in and considering VTVLC as an option to support your education. We understand that every family’s educational needs are unique, and that you have choices in how and when you learn. Online learning can provide you the flexibility you need to enjoy hobbies, traveling, and other benefits unique to home study households.
If you are a home study family outside the state of Vermont, we are happy to support your home study program. All options below are applicable. However, your local school support may vary state to state. We encourage you to contact your state’s Department of Education for clarification.
1.) Ask for Support for Teacher Facilitated Courses
In accordance with the Vermont Agency of Education’s Memorandum dated April 2014, all schools are encouraged to support home study students who request access to VTVLC programs.
In order to request this support, the VTVLC Enrollment Support Release form must be filled out by the home study parent and approved by the local school administrator.
If in cooperation with local school, up to 40% (2 credits) is allowed and still considered home study as part of the provisions available to home study students under Act 119.
Complete Home Study Enrollment Release Form (For Vermont residents only)
- Home study parent completes Section A of the VTVLC Enrollment Support Release Form
- Submit form to the local school your child would attend if he/she attended public school
- Local school administrator completes Section B of the VTVLC Enrollment Support Release Form
It is the responsibility of the home study parent to return the complete form to VTVLC prior to course start date. See the VTVLC Academic Calendar for course start dates.
2.) Pay Out of Pocket for Teacher Facilitated Courses
If the school your child would attend is not willing to support the cost of enrollment for VTVLC courses, you have the option to pay out of pocket for VTVLC courses.
If you are paying out of pocket, there is no limit on the number of courses you enroll your child in to still be considered home study. Simply include the use of VTVLC courses as part of the plan you submit to the Vermont Agency of Education.
To pay out of pocket, complete and return the Authorization and Enrollment Fee Form. Students are not enrolled until this authorization form is signed and received by VTVLC. Enrollments are on a space available, first-come, first-served basis.
VTVLC offers home study families the ability to use the same award winning curriculum used by our VT licensed educators and local high schools around the state.
Accounts are created for you and your child. With you in the role as teacher, you will be able to manage, edit, grade and analyze the data generated in the courses. VTVLC hosts your eCurriculum on their Virtual Campus to create a Hybrid Classroom that is available 24/7.
