Home Schooling May Get Public Help

January 30, 1998|HOPE HAMASHIGE

It might seem a contradiction in terms, but the Newport-Mesa Unified School District is considering setting up a home school at Killybrooke Elementary in Costa Mesa.

The center at Killybrooke will provide parents who school their children at home with instructional materials and guidance from teachers and teachers' assistants. Periodic testing of those children also will be held at the school.

About 40 students who live in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa study at home. Newport-Mesa will receive about $144,000 in state education subsidies every year if they enroll those students in a program affiliated with the district.
