The back-to-school season is always stressful for parents. From the financial strain of getting school supplies to getting your child back on a schedule - it is a lot of change in a little bit of time. This back-to-school season has an added level of stress that has been caused by the pandemic. We can all speculate but nobody truly knows what the fall is going to look like. The unknown is scary for both you and your child and we want to remind you that you are not alone if you are feeling overwhelmed the closer and closer we get to the end of August. One positive to come out of the past two years is that parents realized that they have options when it comes to their children's schooling. Unless you were sending your child to a private school everybody just figured that whatever district you lived in was where you went.
After managing distance learning this past school year, parents feel more empowered to make decisions about their children's education and recognized that there are several options out there. As always we want to get you the resources you need to make the best possible decisions for your family. That is why we created two tip sheets full of information on both homeschooling and charter schooling options. These are major, time-sensitive decisions to be made so if you want to speak with a nonjudgmental parent who gets what you're going through; reach out to one of our Family Support Partners.
