Hard Choices… But Right Ones

My not-so-bright idea : (

[Note: This is solely in reference to 2017-2018 school year enrollments. This semester will not be at all affected by this change.]

This morning I terminated my Independent Contractor agreement with Bright Ideas Press. I know that this is sudden and inconvenient, and I will do my level best to make things right with you. The teachers at Bright Ideas Press are amazing… but, in the end, it just wasn’t a good fit.

Informal Logic & Economics will be hosted on another platform that is “to be determined.” I will let you know for sure within the week. These will be the same fun, amazing classes that you know and love… but with revisions and updates to take them to the next level! (There might be a swap, with Economics on Thursdays at 11 and Informal Logic on Wednesdays at 1pm.)

Algebra 2 & Geometry will be taught exclusively through My Fun Science. I have been assured that I can add sections as needed, so space limitations are not an issue. I have arranged an extra-special coupon in order to make up for the inconvenience, and will be emailing you tomorrow with specifics.

I am 100% committed to making next year amazing for my students and families… and this uncomfortable change is a big part of that.
Thank you for whatever graciousness you can muster.
I know that I am truly blessed.

2017 – 2018 Independent Classes Update

[  ]  Spiral Geometry Mondays 9-10:30am EST (w/ Saxon) – Only two students have signed up. If enrollment does not improve by mid-April, I will cancel this class early in order to allow families time to shift gears.

[  ]  Spiral Algebra 2 Tuesdays 9-10:30am EST (w/ Saxon, 4th Edition) – No students have signed up so far.

[  ]  Consumer Math  has been cancelled for lack of interest… as well as a lack of a modern, useful textbook : /

I am thrilled to announce that minimums have been met and both Summer classes are officially “a go”! There’s still plenty of room for your student to sign up for either Informal Logic or Economics. Plus, a new edition of the Econ textbook is coming out this summer, so this is your last opportunity to to re-use that 2nd edition textbook you have stashed away : )

Thanks so much for your time… enjoy your spring!
