Enrollment FAQs

 When does Enrollment open? 

For new families, enrollment opens with Round 1 Open Enrollment in Enroll Jeffco.  For more info on specific dates, please see the Enroll Jeffco website.  HSC accepts enrollment through October 1st! 

What's the difference between enrollment and registration?

Enrollment is managed through Enroll Jeffco, and includes selecting the program/day you would like to attend, and completing all aspects of the application as required through Enroll Jeffco. Enrollment is the process of securing your seat with our program for the current/upcoming school year. Registration opens in the Spring, and will include completing school-specific forms, signing permissions, paying fees, submitting health forms and immunizations, filing your Letter of Intent, and completing class selections. 

I can’t remember my username/password for Enroll Jeffco or Infinite Campus. 

All username/password reset help must be completed through the Personal Account Manager feature in Enroll Jeffco. Please email enrollment@wwahomeschool.org with additional questions/help request. 

How much does it cost to attend HSC?

Nothing! We are a free, publicly funded program. There is a $30 registration fee per student per year ($75 for families with 3 or more students.) Fees are payable in September through Infinite Campus, or by check. 

 

If you are unable to pay fees, please contact the director, Chelsea Minshull, at cminshull@wwahomeschool.org

Can I switch days/locations mid year?

No, each family should select ONE day for the entire year. Each day is set up as a separate program and as a result we are unable to have students switch between days or campuses throughout the year. However, if you would like to switch day/location for the upcoming school year, please email enrollment@wwahomeschool.org

 

Can my student enroll in the Homeschool Connection and another homeschooling program?

Students who are enrolled in the Homeschool Connection CANNOT simultaneously enroll with any other publicly funded school or program. Most private umbrella schools work very well alongside of HSC. If you have any questions, contact enrollment@wwahomeschool.org.

 

The location/day I wanted is full, what should I do?

Several of our days and locations fill up quickly, so it’s imperative that you try and enroll as soon as you can. If you find that the location you want is full, there are two options: 

  1. Enroll and be added to the waitlist. Between May and August we have several families who's plans change and space becomes available at HSC. Just because we fill up in the Spring doesn’t mean we’ll be full in the Fall. 

  2. Enroll for a different day/location. Our Tuesday program in Westminster has a smaller number of students. 

 

What is October Count?

October Count is a two and a half week period where we receive funding from the state based off our attendance. We love being able to provide your children with quality teachers, classes, and materials. The funding we receive during this window is the ONLY reason we are able to do that, so it’s imperative that your student is present at HSC during this time. 

 

The October Count Dates vary each year, but typically it will begin late September and end in early October. We will notify families of these dates as soon as we know them.

 

Your student is REQUIRED to be in attendance on your HSC day during this window. We reserve the right to withdraw your student from the program if a student misses more than one day during this window. For additional questions email enrollment@wwahomeschool.org.

 

We know our families love to travel, and we support that fully, but we ask that you try not to schedule any major trips during this time. In the event of an unplanned absence, please email attendance@wwahomeschool.org with the date, student’s name, reasons for absence, AND documentation of absence (i.e. a doctor’s note). 

 

I need to unenroll my child from HSC, what should I do? 

In order to officially withdraw a student from HSC, an official statement needs to be sent to enrollment@wwahomeschool.org. The statement needs to include the student’s name, an official declaration that you are leaving, and your plans for the remainder of the year/next year. Here is an example below:

 

I am withdrawing (student's name) from The Homeschool Connection. Our educational plans for the remainder of the year are to             (continue to homeschool, go to public school in Jeffco School district, move out of state, etc.).

 

When do I get my student's schedule?

Student schedules won’t be released until July and after ALL portions of the registration packet is completed.

My student wants to change one of their classes. What should I do?

To request a class change you will need to complete a Class Change Request Form. This will be made available parents once you are fully enrolled in the program. Due to the high volume of class change request, we will only process requests submitted through the form. 

Class changes open (roughly) one month prior to the start of the new semester and will close (roughly) three weeks into the new semester. For Fall semester classes, changes typically open in mid July and close on Labor Day. For Spring semester classes,  changes typically open in mid to late November and close on MLK Day. 

 

My student was placed on a waitlist for a class, what is that? 

If your student was placed on a waitlist it means that one or both of your student’s class choices was full, and your student has been placed on a waitlist for that class. If a spot becomes available your student will automatically be moved into that class. 

If your student would like to move back into their original class you will need to fill out a Class Change Request form. Please note that once your student moves out of a class there may not be available space to move back into their original class. Many of our classes have waitlists and once a waitlist move has been made, it can often create a domino effect. Please consider this when signing your student up for classes. 

To view waitlists please visit our HSC Student's Corner.

 

My student no longer wants to be on a waitlist. 

If your student was placed on a waitlist for a class and would no longer like to be on that waitlist, please fill out a Class Change Request form and request to be removed them from the waitlist.
