Are any of the MLO programs a "homeschool" program?  (STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING)
Although many of our programs serve families who want to teach their children at home, MLO programs are not legally "homeschool programs" because they operate under a different set of laws. Each MLO program is a Mead School District Alternative Learning Program that has been designed to serve parents who want a different model of education. Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) programs are public education options where some or all of the instruction is delivered outside of a regular classroom schedule and we follow all public education requirements as well as chapter 392-121-182 WAC. On the other hand, homeschoolers provide home-based instruction and fall under a different set of laws including  RCW 28A.200.011(1)  RCW 28A.225.010(4)
