Hello, this is Gail Kemp, principal of HomeTech. I’m calling you with a few announcements. First, the end of the grading period for our jr. high and high school students is Friday, November 8th. at which time teachers will submit grades for progress reports. Typically, no late work is accepted after this date, but due to the Power Shutoff days we are extending our late policy until the end of the semester which is December 20th. Secondly, attendance sheets are due this week. The attendance sheet is the green paper on which students circle the subject areas of work they completed for the day. The attendance sheet must have a parent or guardian signature on it before being turned in. Lastly, picture make-up day is tomorrow, Monday November 4th from 9-11:30. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. Our number is 872-1171. Thank you and have a nice evening.

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.

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians, In order to try to streamline the last couple of weeks of school for students completing all or part of the semester online, your teachers will be uploading your assignments to Google Classroom. All teachers will be posting all their assignments to the class named: HomeTech Independent Study. The class code is bypc3p Students will need to go to the assignment for each of their courses (except electives) and open the link to see the assignment. Assignments do not need to be printed--students may complete their assignment on a separate document (either hard copy/digital/google document) and email it back to his/her advisory teacher. Students could also take a picture of their work and email the picture to his/her teacher. mervin@hometech.org thamm@hometech.org dreynolds@hometech.org gkemp@hometech.org bsanders@hometech.org hervin@hometech.org devans@hometech.org

I hope this message finds your family in a comfortable, safe place. This had been a difficult time for all of us. I am working very closely with all other Paradise Charter leaders along with help from other leaders from Butte County Office of Education and California Charter School Association to create a plan for our families to begin school again on December 3rd. Our School is still standing in Paradise, but we do not know how long it will be until we can start school there again. We will create a temporary site for the short-term, and we are looking for more permanent site options for our school. I am thinking we will be based somewhere in Chico. HomeTech’s staff has been calling our students to check on our families and share news as we get it. I also will be posting information on our website and on our Facebook page. Feel free to contact us, if you have not yet made contact with your teacher. Our email addresses are the first initial of our first name and our last name at HomeTech.org. To contact me, email mervin@hometech.org. I am looking forward to seeing you all again very soon. Your families have been in my thoughts and prayers.
