FAQ

If you don’t see your question below please feel free to contact us.

Q.

Is it possible for my student to take an elective course at our local school?

A.

We encourage families to talk directly first with their local school’s principal. We have experienced great success with this particular scenario. It does however require the approval of the local school’s principal to allow your student to be on school grounds during school hours.

Q.

About the home-visits every two weeks. Is that a requirement, or is this part of your program flexible?

A.

We have learned that every student requires an individualized approach. At our charter, the staff and teachers strive to make every experience a positive one. For example, if your family would prefer fewer home visits but more email interaction, we are happy to make this accommodation for you.

Q.

I have a four year old who is already reading. Can I enroll my student at the age of four into Kindergarten at your school?

A.

No. Your student must be five years old prior to September 1st of any given year in order to enroll into our Kindergarten program.   If you wish to petition this rule please contact our administration.

Q.

Is my student required to participate in state testing through your program?

A.

Yes. Like every other public school, we receive state funds to operate our school and therefore required to meet state requirements in reference to state testing.

Q.

If we are currently registered as a home-schooled family, do we need to unregister as such once we enroll in your program?

A.

Yes. We are a public charter school. Once your student enrolls with us, they are considered part of the public school system.  Please un-enroll from the ESD home school rolls as soon as your enrollment is confirmed with Baker Charter Schools.

Q.

Who grades my classes?

A.

Check out our curriculum guide! It will show your assigned HQ teacher per subject.  Locate their contact information on the staff page.
