I broke this page, but it’s been recreated.
I converted this page from “Dynamic Text Area Page” to “Widgets” so that I could include a Calendar widget with upcoming course planning dates and tabs for the course proposal forms.
CKEditor is converting the HTML code from
<a id="anchor" name="anchor"></a><a href="#anchor">Anchor</a>
<a data-cke-saved-href="anchor" href="#anchor">Anchor</a>.
Doubly unfortunately, there’s no “convert back to Dynamic Text Area Page” option.

Information for Instructors
We recognize that there is a lot of information here, but it’s information every instructor at PHS needs to know before submitting a course proposal.
Planet Homeschool is a secular homeschool co-op for middle school and high school students ages 10–19 years. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds and our families have a variety of educational philosophies and styles. We are committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment and our membership includes many transgendered and neurodivergent students and students at higher risk of becoming very ill from COVID-19.
Planet Homeschool is a homeschool co-op, not a school. Planet Homeschool does not and cannot hire instructors. Instead, our co-op members co-operatively decide together what courses our children want to take in a group setting and then work together to find instructors to teach those courses and pool resources to provide a space for those courses to be taught, and otherwise ensure our children can have a group learning experience.
Instructors are expected to be familiar with Planet Homeschool Community Expectations and the policies linked to therein, to treat all students, their parents, guardians, and caregivers, and other instructors respectfully, to work to create a safe and welcoming space for everyone, and to share feedback in a constructive way.
Small class sizes are highly valued by homeschoolers. Historically, courses at PHS have averaged 8 students with the vast majority of courses fairly evenly distributed in a shallow bell curve between 4 to 12 students.
Your “Minimum Student Date” is also the last day that those registered for the course may ask to cancel their registration and be guaranteed a full refund.
Currently, PayPal states that while there are no new fees to issue the refund, the fees you were originally charged will not be returned to you. That is a disingenuous game of semantics: Refunds will cost you money.
To help instructors avoid the cost of refund fees, our co-op discourages families from paying tuition until a course’s Payment Due Date, but the registration system our co-op uses cannot prevent earlier payment.
