FINDING YOUR PLACE
Parents strive to find the right place to send their children every year. They have traditional options to choose from, like public district schools, charters, private campuses and the most classic educational method of all: staying at home.
As the years have gone by, those options have become much deeper than they were before. Public school districts currently offer some charter school options; charter schools have expanded to cover a select group of students; and online components have ingratiated their way into every system.
With the 2014-15 school year now underway in some school districts and set to start within the next two weeks in others, the East Valley Tribune has compiled information that can help families prepare their children for life as students and beyond. These include the little things parents can do to ready their aspiring scholars — picking the right gear to go to school with, deciphering the plethora of educational options to choose from — as well as a look into the opening of new schools with their own educational bents.
Take a peek at the section and remember that homework isn’t just for students — parents have to do their fair share of research and studying to prepare for another year of school.
