A public school supplement to your home education
Each school district in Whatcom County has their own version of a partnership program. If you would like to participate in one, you must enroll your child in the public school district associated with the program. Each program is run a little differently and has its own style and you are free to choose between them as long as their are openings. Some important differences to note between them are the ability to drop off kids or not, the structure and choice of classes, the community aspect between other families, and requirements for participating (like reporting).
