We can provide you the resources to successfully teach your child at home!
Saugus Union School District offers parents the opportunity to educate their children in their home environment through the Independent Home Study Program, an alternative public school option for parents of children in Kindergarten through sixth grade.
Parents who would like to choose this option for their children's education can contact our IHS Center for an application and to schedule an individual interview which will be conducted to start the eligibility process. Once admitted to the program, parents sign a contract outlining the responsibilities of both the program and home to ensure a quality learning experience.
Parents are provided all materials required by the California Department of Education to successfully teach state curriculum AT NO COST! In addition, the IHS program will provide curriculum and resources for music/ fine arts and provide ideas and resources for extracurricular activities and field trips that will enhance your child's educational experience. Each year, our IHS program hosts a Back-to-School Night, cultural and holiday celebrations, and Showcase for the IHS students and their families as well as a myriad of opportunities to participate in other events hosted by schools in our district.
Securing the Future
If your child is enrolled in the IHS program, you can be assured that his/her educational needs will be met. Weekly appointments with the credentialed IHS teacher offer individualized support and consultation. Monthly benchmark assessments are given to assure that your child will succeed in the completion of all grade level work by the end of the school year. In addition to our weekly meetings, the support you need is just an email or phone call away - you may contact the IHS teacher at any time for help.
