Seek Approved Vendor Status ASAP with California Charter Schools
A charter school is a term for a school that receives government funding but operates independently of the established public school system in which it is located, and in some cases is privately owned.
Not all California homeschooling families choose to be a part of a charter school. However, some homeschooling families in California do choose to supplement their homeschooling with classes offered at charter schools. As members of a charter school, parents can receive refunds for the purchase of approved curriculum and services from approved vendors. Charter schools create a list of approved material and service vendors for which parents can receive refunds.
To apply to be on the approved vendor list, please contact each of the charter schools listed below. Each of the charter schools listed will be exhibiting at the California Homeschool Convention due to their affiliation with CA homeschooling families. Charter schools have different approval times. Please contact each at your very earliest convenience.
