Northshore Family Partnership

Student using technology in the classroom

Northshore Family Partnership, located at Bear Creek Elementary, is a program where homeschool students attend core and elective courses taught by Northshore teachers to support parents in their homeschooling efforts. The program aims for a collaborative culture where families regularly meet with an onsite teacher who oversees and monitors the Written Student Learning Plans designed to support academic progress of the homeschool student.

The program incorporates a site-based model designed to support and reach the individual needs of students and families where parents/guardians serve as the primary educators for their children. A selection of core and enrichment courses are provided on site for elementary grade-level (K-5) students.

Beginning in the 2020-21 school year, students in grades K-8 will be served.

Northshore certificated teachers teach courses, collaborate with parents/families to establish student learning plans, regularly communicate with parents/families, monitor student progress, and support the efforts of parents/families with their home learning needs. 

The Northshore Family Partnership aims to establish an inclusive, supportive community of families that seek an alternative model for learning for their children where parents serve as the primary educators. We envision a place where parents/families collaborate in a true partnership with teachers as they create a learning environment that nurtures peer interactions while participating in meaningful, real-world learning experiences.
