Q: How much does co-op cost?
A: Each family will pay a family membership fee of $50 per semester.
Q: When are co-op classes held?
A: Co –op will meet every other Monday from 9-12:30 September to May.
Q: How long are the classes?
A: A typical co-op day would look like this:
Opening Assembly: 9:15
1st Class: 9:30-10:30
2nd Class: 10:30-11:30
3rd Class: 11:30-12:30
Closing Assembly: 12:30
Q: Can my child select between more than one class for each class hour?
A: Ideally, we would offer a choice of at least two classes each class hour for each age group ages 6+ (younger children will all follow the same class progression throughout the co-op day.) Of course, in order to offer that many class choices, we will need enough teaching parents and assistants. That is why this remains the “ideal” as opposed to the “for sure”.
Q: Do I have to teach?
A: Leadership is committed to having GUIDE be a “truly cooperative” endeavor. It is therefore expected that there will be parental involvement from each family participating in the co-op. Not only in teaching/assisting where needed but in attending the co-op sessions regularly. Teachers will be required to sign and agree to the Statement of Faith.
Q: What are some samples of classes you have offered?
A: Scrapbooking, teen art, recycling, sign language, gym class, astronomy, build a band, american history, insects, letter fun, human body, journey through africa, high school science labs, cooking classes of all different kinds. Each semester is different depending on what the families would like to teach.
