Shared school meeting to be held Thursday

Parents and students interested in participating in a new shared school program are invited to attend an informational meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Moffat County School District administration building board room, 775 Yampa Ave.

MCSD Director of Educator Effectiveness Zack Allen is exploring interest among homeschool parents and students for creating a part-time program dedicated exclusively to homeschool students. Instruction may be provided in specific subject areas, depending on interest.

“The idea is that we can support parents and homeschool students with whatever their interests or needs are through part-time enrollment,” Allen said.
