School Home Partnership Program (SHoPP)

The School-Home Partnership Program (SHoPP) is an alternative learning experience program for K-8 students and their families. Families work with a certificated teacher to develop a learning plan for the school year, and students complete the majority of their learning activities at home through instruction by their parents or guardians. The teacher monitors student progress and guides parents in carrying out the learning plan. 

This year, SHoPP will provide weekly classes for students in grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8, for enrichment in math, ELA, science and art. 

Contact Teresa Borseth or Katie Osborne at 360-965-3035 for more information.


Alternative Learning Experience 

Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) is primarily distinguished by off-campus instruction. The intent of this type of program is to give schools flexibility to serve a diverse student population. The specific requirements and expectations of these away-from-school learning activities are detailed in a written student learning plan (WSLP) developed and supervised by a public school teacher.

OSPI provides general support, consultation and technical assistance to educators and schools regarding alternative education, with a primary focus on implementing ALE under WAC 392-121-182.
