Meeting Notes & Topics are updated as a new learning period approaches. You are welcome to make a copy for your reference and modify for your own meetings. Please note: These notes are for teacher reference only and are not intended to be a complete reference. Please make sure you have reviewed and added the additional content necessary to conduct your personalized learning period meetings with your families.

Learning Period meetings are scheduled for 60 minutes or longer for students and families with more complex needs such as a student in High School or a student with an IEP.

Students with IEPs, 504 and SST plans will require additional meeting attendance by the Homeschool Teacher at various times throughout the school year. These meetings are in addition to the regularly scheduled monthly Learning Period meetings.

Please see this page for a description of Good, Better, and Best LP Meetings Practices.

In-Person Meeting Waiver

Per school policy, students and teachers must meet in person at least twice each semester for a minimum of (4) meetings per school year. At the discretion of the Senior Director, one in-person meeting may be waived per year for a pupil given extraordinary circumstances. If a family requests an in-person waiver, please reach out to your RC for instructions. The deadline for in-person waivers is the last day of LP3 and the last day of LP7.
