Homeschool Requirements and LRF Forms

We ask that PACT families meet the following requirements and fill out Learning Record Forms tracking your student's lessons.
  1. The time requirements for a 5 day instructional week are: 
    • Kindergarten = 16 2/3 hours (3 1/3 hours daily)
    • Grades 1-3 = 23 1/3 hours (4 2/3 hours daily)
    • Grades 4-8 = 25 hours (5 hours daily)

All students must receive at least 180 days of instruction per school year.

  1. It is recommended that students receive instruction in the following subject areas during the school year: Language Arts (reading, English, Grammar, Writing and Spelling), Mathematics, Science, Social Studies (Geography and History), Fine Arts (Art, Drama, Dance, and Music) and Physical Education.
  2. The Learning Record Form (LRF) must be completed by the Parent-Teacher for each student and returned to the Educational Adviser with the required work samples for each learning period (5-18 school days at the discretion of the Adviser and/or Administrator). Currently, the State of California requires families to track lessons and assignments daily on their lesson plans.
  3. If you have registered for a certain class, you must attend. If you can not make it to the class for some reason, please let either the teacher of the class or the Educational Adviser know in advance if at all possible.
  4. Parents are responsible for all materials checked out from the Resource Center. We ask that you limit the checkout period of resource materials, library books, games, and equipment. It is your responsibility to regularly check your library account to verify that all items are accurate.
  5. Parents are to supply immunization and proof of birth upon request (for your student's cumulative file).
  6. Parents are required to attend scheduled appointments with an Educational Adviser every 5-15 school days as determined by the Educational Adviser, Administrator, and/or current Independent Study guidelines and law.
  7. The Parent-Teacher, Student, and Educational Adviser MUST sign a Master Agreement prior to the beginning of each year.

The Natomas Charter School will terminate a student's enrollment if the parent/teacher or student is not fulfilling the requirements of the written agreement.

Natomas Charter School shall be non-sectarian in its programs, admissions policies, employment practices, and all other operations shall not charge tuition, and shall not discriminate against any pupil on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender or disability.
