ABOUT CORE: CORE Butte offers an alternative homeschool education model that requires one-on-one parent participation. In order to be enrolled with CORE Butte Charter School, a student MUST be able to work independently. Success in independent study requires motivation and a strong commitment on the part of the student and his or her parents/guardians/caregivers. It also requires sufficient academic preparation. CORE Butte requires a commitment from both students and parents to the goals and vision of this charter. CORE is a public Personalized Learning charter school, supporting families who home-school their children. A personalized educational program is designed for each student. There is no cost to attend our school. Families are assigned to a credentialed teacher who provides constant direction for the parent/student/teacher team. This credentialed teacher assists the parent in the selection of curriculum from a vast array of state standards aligned texts, appropriate for each child's level in each subject area, and then guides the parent throughout the year. Parents take the role of the primary educator of their own child. It is a challenging, exciting, rewarding task.
