Was there a recording I could receive?
The session was intentionally not recorded to encourage people to be open with their questions without fear of anyone “listening in”. The format was question and answer.
However, there is a recording of a presentation on the paperwork for registration at https://youtu.be/3AcH4xpu9_Q, and there is a guide that SHBE put together at https://shbe.ca/resources/SHBE-Guide-to-using-SHBE-Templates.pdf, as well as the templates and information available on https://shbe.ca/shbe-resources/.
One of the comments from the discussion: sometimes new home-based educators seek “validation” from the school division. School division officials are largely only familiar with institutional classroom-style instruction, are are therefore ill-equipped to advise or encourage home-based educators. The best “validation” is observing your children thrive according to your own metrics of success (which include but are hopefully not limited to academic achievement). “Validation” may also may be sought from the home-based educator community, who understand the dynamics of home learning and can offer feedback and encouragement along the way.
PS: School Divisions are not responsible to “approve” your written education plan – they only assess compliance to the regulations. The role of the School Division is to ensure the compelling interest of the province are being met; they are not responsible for protecting your or your child’s rights.
