Alternative Learning Option (ALO)

HomeLink Parent Partnership is a public school option for students in Kindergarten through 9th grade. We serve families dedicated to taking an active role in the education of their children. Students may attend for as little as two courses per week, while others are enrolled as full‐time public school students who invest up to 28 hours per week depending on grade level.

HomeLink elective courses offered at the 9th grade level are not credit bearing. 

Students in grades 1‐9 who wish to join HomeLink must have 90 days of documented, successful homeschooling in the last two years to be eligible to join the program. Students who do not meet that eligibility may enroll provisionally for 90 days under the Mentorship Program.

HomeLink operates under the Alternative Learning Option rules and guidelines through OSPI.
