A. 

Yes, Sage Oak Charter School and Sage Oak - Keppel Partnership Academy are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Sage Oak Charter School - South plans to obtain its initial accreditation during its inaugural school year, 2019-2020.

According to WASC’s website, WASC is a process that serves as the foundation for quality education.

We are proud and pleased to be able to offer Sage Oak students an accredited program.

The school provides a high level of support to our families through a partnership with EAs (Education Advisors) who are highly trained and comfortable serving high school students. Our highly qualified teachers will work with students to create a high school course plan that meets the requirements no matter what path is chosen. Parents can feel confident that the school’s high school program is reputable and high quality. We offer many diverse options to meet your high school student’s individual needs.

What will I (the parent) have to do on my end to keep track of learning?
A. 

As a publicly funded charter school, our credentialed teachers work with the student to create a personalized learning plan that best meets each student’s individual needs. During the monthly learning period meeting, the credentialed teacher reviews the learning plan, provides resources to support the plan, and reviews the entire body of work completed during the learning period. The parent serves as a partner in this educational plan but is not required to keep track of student learning as that is a function of the credentialed teacher.

What is the difference between a Teacher Facilitator (TF) and an Education Advisor (EA)?
A. 

TFs (Teacher Facilitators) service students in grades TK-8. You will meet with your TF every learning period. At this meeting, your TF will review your student's entire body of work, collect work samples, plan for the next LP (learning period), answer any questions you have regarding your child, and deliver any supplies that were ordered. Your TF is your go-to person and the teacher of record for your TK-8th grade student.

EAs (Education Advisors) are specially trained in high school graduation requirements and creating an individualized path toward graduation, college admissions, UC A-G requirements, and high school curriculum options. They hold Learning Period (LP) meetings virtually or in person, collect work samples, and pace high school courses. The EA hosts local events for high school students such as college tours, educational events, social events, etc.
