Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Cedar Rapids Home School Assistance Program is to provide an educational alternative that benefits home schooling families, meets the educational requirements of the school district, considers the best interest of the student and complies with the state law.
Home Visits - an important aspect of our Home School Assistance Program is visits with families. During these visits, Resource Teachers work with students on academic projects, update student progress, and provide educational resources for Parent-Teachers. A monthly newsletter (found on the Communications tab) will keep you up to date with the many opportunities available through our program.
The Cedar Rapids Home School Assistance Program, CR-HSAP...
..started in 1988. It is a kindergarten through 12th grade education program for parents who wish to school their children. Our staff of seven full-time certified teachers support home school families by guiding them in the many decisions needed to give their children the best learning experience possible. Each teacher brings a different academic strength which makes our program distinctively strong.
Respecting the uniqueness of each family is important to us. By supporting families with educational goals, graduation requirements, professional materials, teaching techniques and curriculum, we become invested in the success of your home school. We are available five days a week to assist in your teaching endeavor.

You will have regular home visits with your Resource Teacher to discuss questions and needs you have. She will also do a lesson/activity with your student(s).
