FEAST Co-op Student Council

Student council is a student organization led by chosen student leaders. Decisions are made by the students. Students choose fundraiser ideas and work together to put them into action. They learn organizational techniques, and the money raised through their fundraisers is used to help improve FEAST.


About the FEAST Co-op

The FEAST Co-op program is a great way to get your child involved with other home school children as they participate together in academics and electives.

OUR PURPOSE
The primary purpose for the FEAST Teaching Co-op is to provide additional options for parents as they continue to seek the Lord for His provision for their children's education. It is also to give an opportunity for members of the Body of Christ to make their gifts and talents available to others. It is not the purpose of FEAST to undermine the authority or confidence of parents in any way. Neither can it be a replacement for parent involvement. An added bonus is the opportunity to encourage one another through Christian fellowship.

OUR GUIDELINES
The FEAST Co-op is not a typical school situation. The parent is completely responsible for their child/children, even while they are at the Co-op and even if parents ARE NOT on campus.  Thursday Co-op has mandatory Devotions from 12:30 to 12:50pm.  Devotions provide a break time for students to have lunch and down time, but in a supervised Godly manner.  No specific doctrine will be taught during devotions only Bible lessons.  Every family who stays on campus at this time must attend devotions.  This includes Co-op students, parents and siblings.  This being said we have instituted rules and guidelines which are available in our CO-OP Handbook (see link below). All parents and students MUST send an email to coop@homeschoolfeast.com if you are unable to attend the orientation on July 17th, 2014. A copy of our handbook may be viewed and printed out here.

OUR TEACHERS
We thank the Lord for every one of our teachers. Without their talents and skills our co-op would not have flourished as much as it has. They are all approved by the FEAST Co-op office with a minimum of two references. Their teaching materials have also been approved and all classes are taught from a Biblical, Christian worldview. Our teachers are self-employed, independent contractors.

TEACHER INFORMATION
If you have a talent or gift that you would like to share with others through teaching, please fill out a Teacher's Application Form by selecting the Teacher Application Icon below.

Read the Teacher's Handbook and  submit the completed forms to coop@homeschoolfeast.com. The deadline for submitting applications for the Fall Semester of 2015-2016 is February 1, 2015.  If you feel you would like to teach a class that FEAST does not offer or cannot do without, please submit the Teacher Application  and the Class Information Form, and we will review your request.
