  1. I'm in Northern California.............Paradise exact! 2 hours north of Sacramento:cool: Rachel http://www.redefiningparadise.blogspot.com
  2. I'm a year ahead in California's math system. As a freshman in high school, I've taken Math 2A(in the first semester, couldn't keep up with the workload and got an F) and I'm taking Math 2 for the second semester. If I were to stay in California, I would take Math 3 as a sophomore, Pre-Calc as a junior, and AP Stats or Calculus AB as a senior. However, I'm likely moving to Texas over the summer, and their math system follows a different curriculum. My question is, if I move to Texas, what math classes should I take for the remainder of my high school years? If I've mastered Math 2, should I stay on the accelerated track and take Algebra 2, then Pre-Calc, then AP Stats/Calculus AB? Or for my own benefit, should I move to the normal track, take Geometry as a sophomore, then Algebra 2, then Pre-Calc as a senior? I would really like to keep my accelerated track, because I want to reduce the amount of math I have to take in college. However, I'm afraid that skipping Geometry might put me at a disadvantage. Thoughts on how the California curriculum compares to the Texas one?
  3. From FDA https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm634230.htm “The recalled products – California-grown conventional and organic avocados -- were packed at Henry Avocado’s packing facility in California and distributed in Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin. All shipments from the packing facility are subject to the recall (Henry Avocado did not begin packing there until late January 2019). Avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado are not subject to the recall and may continue to be sold and consumed. Henry Avocado is contacting all affected customers to confirm that the recalled products are immediately removed from store shelves. For conventional products purchased at retail, consumers can identify the recalled products by the “Bravocado” stickers. Henry Avocado organic products do not carry the “Bravocado” label on the sticker. Instead those products are labeled “organic” and include “California” on the sticker. Retailers can identify Henry Avocado organic products by the bar code on the stickers. Consumers who have purchased any recalled avocados are urged not to consume them, but to discard them or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with further questions may contact Henry Avocado at (760) 745-6632, Ext 132 or visit www.henryavocado.com/media”
  4. From Sacramento Bee https://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article223442635.html ”The California Department of Motor Vehicles issued 2.3 million new IDs this year using a process that doesn’t meet the federal government’s standards, the DMV was told last month. The development means Californians who got those Real IDs will need to provide a second form of documentation to prove their residency when their ID comes up for renewal. DMV spokesman Armando Botello said the federal government told the DMV during phone conversations about the issue that it would still accept IDs that didn’t meet the requirement in the meantime. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security sent DMV director Jean Shiomoto a letter on Nov. 21 saying California’s process for verifying ID applicants’ residency didn’t meet federal requirements. Federal standards require ID applicants to “present at least two documents of the State’s choice that include the individual’s name and principal residence,” according to the letter. It instructed the DMV to send federal officials a plan to correct the issue. The department is still finalizing its correction plan, but intends to start requiring new applicants to provide two documents verifying residency beginning in April. In a Friday letter, Shiomoto told DHS that Californians provide one residency document when they apply for a new ID at the DMV and that the department then mails the ID to the address provided as secondary verification.“
  5. ACT scores are affected as well and California State University system is aware of the glitch. From KTVU http://www.ktvu.com/news/computer-glitch-at-csu-fails-to-upload-sat-scores-making-applications-incomplete “A computer coding issue is worrying prospective California State University students after their SAT and ACT scores failed to upload and attach to their applications. 2 Investigates was contacted on Thursday by a college advisor claiming students were running the risk of having their applications canceled. A spokesperson for the 23-campus university system admitted to KTVU on Friday there is indeed a problem because of a coding issue, but no applications will be denied or canceled as administrators are furiously working to correct the glitch. “We’re working through that now and we should have it rectified soon,†Director of Public Affairs Toni Molle said. “Their applications will not be canceled. If there’s any scores that are missing, they will receive an email from us.†... The university system and The College Board are scheduled to have another conference call later on Friday to make sure the sorting of codes and matching is fixed. Any students affected by the mismatch should have received an email. “Students should not worry,†Molle said. “No applications will be canceled without further follow-up.†California State University does not expect any delays and said it is on track to send out acceptance letters as it usually does.â€
  6. My husband just got offered a job in CA, and if we move there I am trying to decide what homeschooling route to take: charter, or register as a private school. My son is 10, and about a grade behind in math and two grades behind in reading. He also may have dyslexia...we were planning on getting him tested right before my husband lost his job. The extra money available through a charter to spend on curriculum and supplies sounds nice, and I've heard from some California homeschoolers that the charter they use doesn't interfere at all with their homeschool choices UNLESS their child tests under grade level, which my child would. So, I'm wondering exactly what that interference would look like? Has anyone here worked through a charter in California and had their child test under grade level. What happened Does it make a difference if they have a learning disability ? Does that change how things are handled? If you don't like the interference can you just switch to the "register homeschool as a private school" option? If you were in my situation, which route would you take? (Coming from Texas where we have pretty much no help/no interference).
  7. Is Disneyland cheaper to visit and easier to plan at the last minute? We were hoping to do Disney World this fall,l but life got the best of us and we don't have anything planned. This afternoon it occurred to me that it may be feasible to do a short (5 day?) Disneyland vacation with Universal Studios and maybe some other attractions. Is this true? If so, do you have any advice? Honestly, I don't know where to start as I have never planned this type of vacation before and it feels very overwhelming. Thanks. SJ
  8. Hi All I am trying to put a few competitions together. These are team competitions and my private school is happy to have your child participate if they are homeschooled. You would simply need to sign a liability waiver. That being said, I have put the competitions below. You can simply divide the cost of the competition by the minimum number of students in the team. Happy to answer any questions. It would be easier if your student is in Southern California but it is not a pre-requisite. Best Mandy Gr Site Cost Min.

  9. Hi Everyone, It appears that we just got a new unit cap for classes while attending a community college during highschool in California. Here is what it says on the form I have to use: Effective spring 2014, K-12 students are limited to 7 units in spring or fall term and 4 units in summer session. A student requesting enrollment in excess of these limits must petition to the Director of Enrollment Services and provide transcripts and written justification. See K-12 Minor Unit Petition. If the minor student is attending high school, the parent or guardian and the high school district official must sign. If the minor student has graduated high school or has received a California High School Proficiency Exam Certificate, then only the parent or guardian signature is required. If the minor student has been home schooled, then an official from the high school district where the student resides must sign and the parent or guardian must sign. (Private School Affidavit is Required) If the minor student is under 15 years of age, then permission to attend must be requested of the Palomar faculty member who will sign the form if permission is granted. Admissions staff will process the enrollment in person. In all cases, submit the form to the Admissions/Financial Aid Office in the Student Services Center in San Marcos or the Escondido Center. This is going to be a real challange for us. Our plan was to have dss take all Math and Science as dual enrollment. He was so looking forward to it. The unit cap now is 7. Most Math and Science courses are at least 4 units each which means he can never take both at the same time. I am wondering if this a statewide change or not? They just posted this change right before open enrollment this week.
  10. Brown signs bill ending current standardized tests Updated 1:53 pm, Wednesday, October 2, 2013 " A bill ending the standardized tests that California public school students have taken in reading, math and social science since 1999 received Gov. Jerry Brown's signature on Wednesday, despite a threat by the U.S. secretary of education to withhold federal funds if the state moved forward with the plan ... Assembly Bill 484 replaces the pencil-and-paper, multiple-choice STAR tests with new language and math tests taken on computers ............ The new tests are still under development, so schools will be required to give them on a practice basis in grades 3-8 and 11 this spring, with students taking either the math or language sections, but not both. No individual student scores, school performance reports or statewide results — measurements that parents use to gauge their children's advancement and politicians and business leaders use to compare schools — would be generated from the rollout. ..... Under the plan approved by Brown, only the science portion of the test would be given to fifth-, eighth- and 10th-graders next spring before being dropped altogether a year later" From California's Dept. of Education website "Part of the assessment system, developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (Smarter), also will be computer adaptive, so that a student's prior responses affect the difficulty of subsequent questions, allowing a far more precise measurement of student skills and knowledge than the former tests."

  12. There are five courses listed so far. Thought it might interest people in California. "SAN JOSE -- San Jose State and online education startup Udacity are offering for-credit, online-only courses for $150 this summer, the company announced Monday. Enrollment is capped at 1,000 each for the new introduction to programming and psychology courses and will likely grow for the existing, lower-level math classes. The courses are an extension of a pilot project launched in January at San Jose State with Udacity that has been deemed successful. Going into midterm exams, 85 percent of students (including university and high school students) were still enrolled in the test courses, Udacity reports. The credits for all the course are transferable to any California State University campus. Information about the new courses is at www.udacity.com/collegecredit." (link)
  13. My husband just got notice he's going for an interview in Santa Barbara CA. Any WTMers there? Need to find out about homeschooling in CA and homeschooling resources in SB in general. Any help greatly appreciated from Tokyo! Yael
  14. Hello all. I'm sure there has probably been complete turnover since I was last here, it's been so long. At least partial turnover. I used to be just plain nancypants but once upon a time when purposing to disembark from the Good Ship Internet I created a password that I could not crack and it worked. :lol: Anyway, I'm really just here to ask a few questions of California homeschoolers. We moved back to California almost two years ago. Up until now we have been with a public charter school. Until recently I was willing to jump through the various and sundry hoops laid before us in order to get the funding. However they have recently changed the monthly reporting rules and they have become very onerous. I didn't mind compiling a monthly narrative of our school activities but now we must go through and check off a bazillion state standards. I hate those cursed state standards. When they were a "loose guide" I could hang with it. Now that the school is feeling more district/state pressure and passing it on to the parents it has become too onerous and just too many hoops. All of that to say that I need any pearls of wisdom on filing an affidavit. Anything I should be aware of? Anyone who wants to say, "Piece of cake. Fill it out, sign, send. Done. Repeat next year." I would welcome that. :bigear: Thanks in advance!
  15. I'm doing SOTW 4 with my upcoming 4th grader, but in the Well Trained Mind, she discusses supplementing with more American history (even though we had some in SOTW 3) because 4th grade is the year when it's normally taught. She also recommends covering state history for the same reason. I'm looking for books and/or curriculum(s) that are compatible/complementary to classical/WTM/SOTW that could be taught to multiple ages. I won't be including my 2nd grader and K'er in SOTW 4 (except read alouds from CHLL), so I want them to participate in this to some extent. Ideas so far: Road Trip USA Elemental US History Beautiful Feet - American and/or California History Your input is greatly appreciate! :)
  16. I looked on what I think was the most recent California thread, and I didn't see anyone in El Dorado county, so this may be a long shot, but I don't know anyone who homeschools here. Anyone in Folsom (near highway 50,) El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Shingle Springs, Placerville?
  17. Hi I am new to group, we have three kids, 3.5, 2 and 5 weeks. Looking for homeschoolers in the Long Beach, CA area. Trying to discern if homeschooling is right for our family.
