Although home school is safe for kids, this school, gives WAY too much extra work, and does not follow the I.E.P's for kids with dyslexia very well. Fir example, these 'extra websites' that the kids have to use is BS. Just like a normal classroom, the subjects NEED to be kept IN the online class connect at the time the class is in session- none of this, GoFormative, Moby Max, etc.... if regular schools can keep the subjects in, and during the scheduled time for a subject, then this school needs to do the same. And as far as homework goes, some kids with I.E.P.'s are supposed to have LIMITED homework, this school has not yet. followed this in the I.E.P It may be nicer to be at home to do school work, but, in comparison to a regular school, there is too much work, and not enough time between the kids sitting down for SO LONG, online.
