Dear Family of Home -Study Students:
Woodland Public Schools is considering developing an online academy here in our community to serve families who prefer to educate their children in a home setting. We would like to gather input from the local community to help us determine the usefulness of this type of program in Woodland. We invite you to join the discussion in two ways:
First, by participating in a short online survey that will help us determine the level of interest in our community, and identify the programs and services that will best serve the needs of home-study and online students. You can access this survey via a link on our District website homepage, or by using the web address listed below.
Second, we would like to invite you to an Online Academy Forum. At the forum, we will share the results of the survey, introduce some possible online options for students, see if there is interest in developing a parent home study co-op, and listen to your input on how an online academy in Woodland could serve your familys needs.

If you are unable to participate in the forum or survey, but would like to offer your thoughts, I would be happy to meet with you, take your call, or receive your emails.
Thank you for considering this possibility and we look forward to hearing your thoughts!
