In response to the varying needs of our parent and student community, the Walnut Creek School District offers a home school and independent study program for grades kindergarten to eight. Our Governing Board recognizes that the traditional classroom does not meet the needs of all families. We encourage the success of all students by providing assistance to the families who choose to take the primary responsibility for the education of their children.
The Philosophy of the Educational Options School is to provide a supportive link for families who choose to educate their children at home. Our intention is to support the family through the availability of textbooks, curriculum and other resources, and to provide guidance as to the skills and benchmarks taught at each grade level. We realize that each family choosing independent study is unique and has varying needs. We understand that many families choose this option because it provides maximum flexibility to teach from real life experiences and for that reason we would not presume to dictate the manner in which children are schooled.
