Ames HSAP Overview
The Ames Home School Assistance Program (HSAP) provides each enrolled family with an Iowa licensed supervising teacher, who will meet with each family to help with goal setting, teaching ideas, curriculum choices, or whatever else is needed throughout the school year. We do not dictate what curriculum to use; we simply help implement whatever the family has chosen. We are required by law to make four contacts per quarter: one phone call or email, two home visits (if a child is enrolled in an enrichment class or attends a field trip, that counts for one of the two visits), and one “other” which can take a wide variety of forms.
Other optional services we provide include enrichment classes, field trips, a resource library, Scripps Spelling Bee, and Iowa Assessments.
