Savanna School District and Orange County Department of Education will partner to provide an Independent Study option for parents who are interested in an alternative education program for the 2021 - 2022 school year.
The Community Home Education Program (CHEP) is an Orange County Department of Education, Independent Study/Home School option for families of TK-8th grade students. Parents are assigned to a credentialed teacher that provides support and academic expectations and guidance.
CHEP supports parents who wish to take a prominent role in the daily academic delivery for their children. Families receive both teacher editions and student editions of all state adopted grade level curriculum; note that the materials may be different from Savanna's adopted curriculum.
Minimum monthly parent, student, teacher conferences are required. Grade level support courses, electives, and for TK-3rd grade: synchronous daily lessons/ for 4th-8th grades: daily check in and weekly synchronous lessons are provided. All required state assessments and school assigned assessments are a required part of the program. CHEP also has social and academic support staff available.
