Educational Resource List


The following links to South Carolina Standards are provided for parents who want to understand them and who may wish to incorporate them. Homeschooling families are not required to follow standards set by the SC Department of Education or any other state or federal entity.

The South Carolina Department of Education web page on Standards and Learning has links to standards in each subject area. 

They also provide these Family-friendly guides to the standards that provide activities to reinforce and support learning of the stadards. 

This is a list of resources that have been shared with me in the past few days in response to the school closings. Every resource listed is from a trusted website or friend but I have not been able to vet each one and I cannot guarantee that they will perfectly fit your needs or worldview. I hope that you find them helpful.  They are not in any particular order. Sorry about that! 

Feel free to share this page link https://chasc.net/page-1075217
