Joe Burton, Principal of the Options Program

The Options Program for students in grades K-12 is designed to support parents who choose to school their children at home. Parents remain the primary instructional provider, with the school supplementing their efforts. Families participating in the program get limited instruction and educational materials at no cost. This is possible because, as a public school, Options receives a portion of the PPOR (Per Pupil Operating Revenue) distributed at the state level for each enrolled student. This money is used to pay salaries, for curriculum and other costs associated with running the program.

Register for OptionsContact Time & Records
In order to receive funding, each registered student must spend a minimum of 90 hours per semester with a licensed teacher hired by Options, for a minimum of 180 hours per school year. This is approximately 5 - 6 hours per week. These hours must be regularly scheduled. Students who are juniors in high school may be eligible for up to two (2) pre-approved classes per semester at a community college/university. The Options School will reimburse tuition. Parents are responsible for fees and texts. Class time is counted for contact hours.

Curriculum & Assessment
Curriculum is available for annual check out, including teacher editions, at no cost except for consumables. Parents may order cost-effective, reusable curriculum, which is non-religious in nature. Items must be returned at the end of the school year. Curriculum viewing and selection days assist parents in choosing materials from a variety of texts. In the spring, nationally standardized testing is offered at no charge for Options students. Students in grades 3-11 may test, though Colorado only requires testing for grades 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11.
