I have decided to enroll my boys in K12.com online Oregon Virtual Academy. I am doing this because of several reasons: first I want to be able to know for sure that my kids are getting all of the state required curriculum; second I was having trouble with the public school, Hudson Park Elementary, here in Rainier, Oregon because they didn't teach at my standards; third I want to be able to contribute to their learning and as a Learning Coach I can do that very well; and forth homeschooling was costing me way too much money and time trying to get all the curriculum together myself. Granted I was having a blast homeschooling my boys, but with the schedule I was running with my disabled daughter it wasn't giving me enough time with them teaching because she had doctor, therapy and hospital appointments that I had to be at as well. I would also have to look up pages and print them out for my boys' course work or spend a fortune on supplies and books.

ORVA is a online public school...so I won't have to pay for supplies and they send all of them right to my door. They also layout everything so all I have to do is prepare a day ahead and help my boys with their work and projects. ORVA also works around my schedule, unlike regular public school. I personally don't think I am being a traitor to the homeschooling community. I still am going to teach my kids everyday...someone else is just going to help out a little. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It sounds very cool, but I will have to try it out first to see how everything goes. My boys are now enrolled and accepted. They will be starting September 3rd, 2008. I am very excited!
