FAQs



Q:

What is ConnectEd?

A:

ConnectED is a Northern Utah homeschool co-op for secondary students grades 5th-12th.  We also offer PE for grades K-4th.

Q:

How often do you meet?

A:

Each class is only 1 day a week but you can select classes on both Tuesdays and Thursdays. Teens can sign up for as many or as few classes as they want. Depending on the classes you take there may be at-home work as well.

Q:

When during the year will this co-op run?

A:

Co-op starts the week of Aug 22 and will go until the week of May 1. Please see our Yearly Calander for more details. 

Q:

 Does this co-op espouse any one specific religious or world view?

A:

No we do not. We believe in quality education for everyone and wish to take the best from all our fellow homeschool families have to offer. We want this co-op to be a place of community and belonging where everyone feels safe, seen, and heard. We put a strong emphasis on kindness and respect for all people no matter our differences and choose to build on the things we have in common and learn from one another.  

Q:

Does it cost to participate?

A:

ConnectED is a tuition-based co-op where families pay by class to attend. There are three things we all look for in outside programming; convenience, quality, and low cost. Nothing can offer all three of these. We choose to focus on quality and convenience and only charge what we have to run. As we are a 501(c)(3) (official non-profit status) our aim is not to make money but rather to use the funds we collect to best service our families. Please see our Tuition page for more information. 

Q:

Does a parent have to volunteer?

A:

Parents do not have to volunteer. ConnectEd was created to be a drop-off\pick-up program for the convenience of our families. We could use some volunteers for monitoring the students in the study hall the day of co-op. We’re currently looking at if legally we can offer volunteers a tuition discount. (Non-profits have very specific rules when it comes to finances). If this is possible we will extend that opportunity to our families.

Q:

 Do you accept funds through My Tech High, HarmonyEd, or other similar programs?

A:

Yes. We are approved 3rd party vendors for My Tech High, Harmony ED, and Leadership Academy of Utah (LAU). For information specific to each of these vendors please see our tuition page here. (Please note that LAU does NOT pay for core classes so English, math, and science classes will not be able to be paid for by them.) 

Q:

Do you offer core classes or support? 

A:

We have a variety of elective and core classes, you can see our current class schedule here 

Q:

Can I come with my younger children and stay during my older kids?

A:

Yes! One of the reasons ConnectED was created was to foster community and belonging among local homeschool families. We will have a study hall area where parents can visit with each other, homeschool younger children, or where enrolled students can study or socialize during free periods.

Q:

Is ConnectED affiliated with any state charters? 

A:

No, we are not. We are a private entity that does not affiliate with any state programs. This allows us to focus on what we (the families) feel is best for our students and makes it so we do not have to comply with any state testing or regulations. 

Q:

Can my child with disabilities attend?

A:

We accept students of all ability levels and no one will ever be turned away based on disability. Depending on how much help your student needs to successfully participate in class, we may ask you to stay. Please reach out to our director to discuss your student’s specific needs so we can make a plan as to how to best support you.

Q:

Who are your teachers, do you pay your teachers, and how can I apply to teach?

A:

Our teachers vary from professionals in the community that are experts in their field to fellow homeschool moms with years and years of experience teaching these subjects. We strongly believe that certifications or licenses aren’t what make qualified teachers. Passion, knowledge, and a love of students and learning make the best teachers! We pay our teacher for their time in class. If you are interested in teaching please email the following information to [email protected]

  • Name

  • Classes interested in teaching

  • Experience in each of those subjects (professional experience, previous teaching experience,  personal passion, etc.)

Q:

Where is this located?

A:

We are currently working on contracts with two great locations!

  • Tuesdays we are planning to meet at the Rosewood Lane Church of the Nazarene in Layton in the morning, and the F5 gym in Syracuse for PE classes in the afternoon 
  • Thursdays we are planning to meet at the Rosewood Lane Church of the Nazarene in Layton for the full school day.
