A package of bills – AB 1505, AB 1506, AB 1507, and SB 756 – has been proposed by Sacramento politicians that could impact hundreds of high-quality charter schools like ours throughout the state. Each of these bills has passed out of the Education Committee and may be voted on by legislators before the end of May. Taken together, these bills would eliminate the right of existing charter schools to appeal non-renewal decisions, grant districts broad and subjective discretion to deny new charter schools without regard to the quality of the new petition, and impose a five-year moratorium on new charter schools. Learn more and make your voice heard today by visiting www.standforallstudents.org now!
Congratulations to Dakota Lanser for receiving the Paradise Table Mountain Masonic Lodge Student of the Year Award!

The testing schedule for our secondary students (grades 7-12) was sent home with your student and has been posted on our website under parent/student resources. Monday’s secondary test sessions have been scheduled for an hour and a half, and students should anticipate staying the entire time for each session. They can bring homework or something to read if they finish early. No phones will be allowed during the testing session even if the student has finished the test for the day. Students also can bring their own ear buds to use during the testing. All classes have been cancelled for the week.
HomeTech is opening a learning center in Paradise! HomeTech has been working with the Paradise Alliance Church located at 6491 Clark Rd., and they have graciously opened their doors to our students and families. HomeTech students can meet in room N201 every Thursday afternoon from 1:00 to 4:00. This will start tomorrow, Thursday, April 25th. This is completely voluntary and is meant to serve many purposes. Students can pick up packets, turn in work, gain support on work from a teacher, socialize with friends, play a game, and eat some food. This space will be provided for the rest of this school year for all of our families and their students every Thursday. It is our pleasure and privilege to serve our families in the Paradise/Magalia area. Room N201 is easily accessed from the north parking lot and is located on the 2nd floor. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 872-1171. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you in Paradise!

Attendance sheets are due next week by Friday, March 15th at 12:00. The attendance sheet is the green sheet on which students circle the subject area in which they completed work for the day. Each attendance sheet is worth about $700 for HomeTech. Unfortunately, we did not receive many green sheets last month, and our attendance report to the state is due in April. Your help with this is much appreciated. I also want to ask families to help us update their information in Aeries. If you have a new phone number and/or address, please give us a call, and we will help you make sure all information in our system is current. Thank you and have a week end!
I want to remind your family about HomeTech's late work policy. Late work is accepted in all classes until the end of each grading period for at least partial credit. After the grading period ends, work will not be accepted. For example, the first grading period this semester ends this Friday, February 22nd at 3:00 P.M. Students are able to turn in late work for January and February until this time. After Friday, February 22nd at 3:00, students will not be able to submit any late work and a new grading period will begin. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office, 872-1171. Thank you and have a great day!
