**Disclaimer: All information presented on this blog is based on our best understanding of current homeschool laws in the state of Florida at the time of each posting, and in particular the homeschool laws for Hillsborough County, where Class Source is located. However, we are not legal experts, and the information posted in this group does not constitute legal advice. Homeschool laws can vary by county and state. If you are uncertain of the homeschool regulations and requirements in your area, please verify using your local resources. The HSLDA website has a resource which allows you to look up homeschool laws by state, and is a good place to start: https://hslda.org/legal.**
This week's FAQ is:
Is Class Source a co-op?
No. Class Source does not require parents to rotate into teaching schedules or other on-campus duties (though we do offer some class scholarships in exchange for particular jobs on campus, and we always welcome volunteers!). Class Source’s structure utilizes contracted instructors – we are a class program, not a co-op. While some of our instructors are also parents in our community, many are not—but all are qualified, expert instructors in their subject areas. We have some of the absolute best instructors in the Tampa area! Our structure provides support and flexibility for parents who may not have the expertise, time, or desire to teach a class themselves. We allow student drop-offs for all classes, and on-campus Study Hall for any students aged 12 and over who need to remain on campus between classes without a parent present. (For students under 12, we still allow drop-offs for classes, but request that a parent or guardian be present on campus for any periods the student is not in a scheduled class.)
