The Archuleta School District (ASD) recently hired a liaison to work between the ASD and home schooled students in Archuleta County and to develop a shared schooling program.
According to ASD Superintendent, Linda Reed, the district has always welcomed part-time students, whether from the homeschool community or otherwise, but beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, the district will have a part-time position to help facilitate the transition to public school for students and their families.
The project began as an idea at the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, during which a study group was created to brainstorm the program.
Blue Lindner, who helped initiate the project, attempted to bring together the most diverse group of homeschool families she could find, and engage them in discussion on what would best meet their needs as educators.
