Linking school and home

Delta's Home Quest program bypasses traditional classroom instruction.

Looking for alternative schooling?

An information meeting on May 31 can inform you the Home Quest program, a collaborative partnership between Delta School District and parents seeking an alternative to traditional classroom-based instruction.

The Delta Home Quest Distributed Learning (DL) program offers the opportunity for parents to teach their child at home while receiving the support of free field trips, weekly classes, group outings, and a resource lending library, and access to funds for supplies, resources, lessons and sports.

By enrolling in Home Quest, parents and students gain access to Delta School District’s educational resources and provincial curriculum materials, while maintaining a flexible learning environment within the guidelines of a DL program.

The partnership features liaison with certified teachers in North Delta, a network group of homeschooling families, and hands-on learning experiences in science, fine arts, physical education, and more.

The information meeting for parents will discuss how the program is structured and how its resources and opportunities can support alternative educational experiences.

According to Ministry of Education policy, students can register in any school in British Columbia if space is available, so the program is available to students from both within and outside of Delta.

The meeting will be held on May 31 at 7 p.m. at Pinewood Elementary School, 11777 Pinewood Dr.
