WISDOM Home Schooling
Box 78 Derwent, AB
For each child, please include the Notification Form and a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate (or Canadian Passport).
You may include an Education Program Plan (Part D) now, or send it to us separately.
Though the student funding deadline is September 30, WISDOM does accept commited families throughout the year. We do ask unfunded families to consider sending us a donation to help cover operating costs. WISDOM exists solely to serve the traditional home schooling family.
The form is fairly straightfoward, though one common question is regarding the Declaration by Parent (Part B), and the two checkboxes below. If you check the first box, you indicate that you will be using Alberta Curriculum at home, fulfilling all of the same outcomes as you would in school. The second option (most used by home educators) means that you will be creating your own plan for your child, using curriculum that suits your goals and your child's learning style. You may view the Schedule of Learner Outcomes here.
Please sign the form (both parents if possible), date it, and fax, mail, or scan and email it to us. If you have a preference of Facilitator, please write this at the top of your notification form.
If you wish to receive Student Photo ID cards (useful for gaining discounts, free entry into some museums, etc), please send us a good-quality, plain background, well-lit photograph of your child(ren). Please indicate the student's name and grade along with the photo. Teacher ID cards can be created for parents, as well.
Once we have received your forms, we will contact you to let you know they have arrived. A facilitator will be assigned to your family, and will make contact. If you would like immediate contact with a facilitator, please note this when you send us your forms. We look forward to serving you.
Once you've filled in, signed and scanned your notification form, you may attach it below to send to WISDOM as an encrypted file. You may email, fax or mail the notification form and program plan, but we recommend that you send identification documents (passport/birth certificate) using the form below. Files will be encrypted and send over a secure network.
NOTE: We will respond to your submission within two business days. If you do not hear from us, please send your files again, because they have not come through.
