A Registered Homeschooler is a student who participates in an organized home-based learning program but does not follow the B.C. Curriculum nor works with a B.C. certified partner teacher from an Online School. Most registered student programs will be developed by their family or caregiver. Registered students do not receive any student allocations from their school – compared with Enrolled status students.
CHEK ABC supports Registered Homeschoolers by:
- Providing them access to our Librarium resources (curriculum loan library) for an annual fee of $25 per student to cover postage and a book return/damage deposit of $50 per student
- Allowing them access to assessment services such as the Government of B.C. Foundational Skills Assessments at grades 4 & 7
- Allowing access to CHEK ABC Learning Centre and group activities for a fee
It is law in B.C. that all homeschool students be either Registered or Enrolled with an independent or public school by September 30th of each school year. Families who wish to Register, rather than Enroll their student(s), with CHEK ABC are encouraged to email or call the CHEK ABC office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-352-0526 ext.222 for full information and/or to discuss the options and differences.
The CHEK ABC office will confirm that registration is complete upon completion of the online form.
