336: families served by Parents as Teachers in USD 501
Teachers can also help increase parental attendance:
We are going to target families of all ages, of all income levels, of all religions, and single or parents still together. Once parents see what we have to offer by commercials, ads, radio broadcast, flyers, and the success of parents and children they will want to participate in this amazing organization. Whether it’s to learn more about their child’s needs, wants, health, behaviors, and development we can prove Parents as Teachers is the place they deserve and need to be. Advertising is going to be the key to making all of this happen and once all of our marketing strategies go into play, Parents as Teachers is going to be the most helpful and beneficial place for parents and children of all ages.

Co-ops, including teaching co-ops, have always been a mainstay of home educators. Join one or start one. Existing private schools are another option. They are increasingly becoming home education friendly, letting students take individual classes or offering specialized services for a fee. Sometimes you can arrange for tutoring by a moonlighting teacher. And there are private businesses which specialize in providing services for home educators.
