This Week in the Village

Dreams of travel! Child flying on a suitcase against the backdro

Dear Village,

This week, we continue working toward online course completion, passion projects, and on-site activities. You will meet with an adult this week to review your progress and make an action plan to finish the school year.

A reminder that it is important you attend all scheduled on-site classes. If you cannot attend, please contact us and let us know. We ask you spend two days a week on-site from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and three days a week working on courses at home for four to six hours daily.

State Testing Update

California students take several mandated statewide tests. These tests provide parents/guardians, teachers, and educators with information about how well students are learning and becoming college- and career-ready. The test results may be used for local, state and federal accountability purposes.

Learner Spotlight: Johnathan and Breanna

Johnathan and Breanna are new learners to Empower Generations. They have recently welcomed home their second daughter, Miracle, after a very long NICU stay. Johnathan and Breanna are working on English, child development, and health state standards in exploring the transition from one child at home to two, caring for a child with special medical needs, and documenting and writing their own personal story to create a novel.

Balancing work, parenting and school is not easy, and Johnathan and Breanna are working together to accomplish their goals. We are proud to support them!
