Our oversight procedures:
Members are required to join the Many Paths of Natural Learning Yahoo Group
Members are required to be pro-active in their obligations under the Comar 05.
Members are required by law to do one annual visit for the school year. We suggest you do two, but you are required to at least do one. You must agree to do the annual visit at one of our many field trips that are planned throughout the year. We post these events on the support group and they are also in the newsletter.
This is a easy process:
Members are required by law to give a list of the supplies, materials, educational curriculum or any other materials you used throughout the year.
For ease of use and simplicity we provide an easy to use form to fill out and mail in the US POSTAL SERVICE to Many Paths for your records. We strongly suggest you keep your own records as well.
The annual review is due no later than April 30th of the school year you are currently registered for.
This list should contain:
Demonstrated Skills is just a list with headings on it for each subject they've
covered and as the children do something that comes under one of these heading,
you write it down. You can write down knowledge they show about a topic of
conversation, math skills they use while buying toys and shopping, PE stuff they do
while playing, etc.
Resources Used list has the same subject headings as the Demonstrated Skills list. Write down the educational resources used; reading/library books, books on tape, movies, radio programs, field trips, people they have discussions with, web sites, subscriptions, newspaper and computer, and whatever else you come across in life that gives them exposure to learning. You can even make note of the grade level of subject especially if its different than their actual grade level.
