We are still looking for additional host families for our international students. Who do you know that wants to enhance their lives as well as the life of a child?
Who do you know who has always wanted the very special opportunity to host a high school foreign exchange student? Sheridan Academy is in need of 4 host families starting at the end of August. These kids speak English, have their own insurance and spending money and are anxious to be part of an American family. Each family receives $400.00 per student per month as a stipend to offset additional costs such as groceries etc. Please let me know if you or someone you know would love this chance....

Who do you know who could benefit from Sheridan Academy

Timeline photos 05/02/2017

Hello all friends and family of Sheridan Academy,

As many of you may know, this Thursday is the annual Idaho Gives online fundraiser for Idaho non-profits. This is the 2nd year that Sheridan Academy has participated in this event and it is a critical piece of our overall picture.

Sheridan is an entirely tuition based non-profit. We receive absolutely NO state or federal funding. Therefore, as you can imagine, there is no extra funds to help offset technology, student activities or anything above and beyond our day to day functioning. We would love it if you could take just a moment and click on the link below to learn more about Idaho Gives and the important part that it plays in so many companies.

Thanks you in advance for your help and consideration.

Schools win in budget compromise: S.C. schools will see more funding for students, teachers, buses 06/28/2016

Schools win in budget compromise: S.C. schools will see more funding for students, teachers, buses

It's nice to see South Carolina recognizing what we've known for a long time -- early career planning and an individualized curriculum can make a huge difference in better preparing students for the workforce and post-high school education!

Schools win in budget compromise: S.C. schools will see more funding for students, teachers, buses The S.C. House of Representatives and Senate compromised to increase the base student cost allocation from the state to public school districts during the 2016 legislative session.

Private schools seeing strong enrollments 05/31/2016

Private schools seeing strong enrollments

Another proof positive that individualized curriculum-based schools are an attractive alternative (from Bettendorf, IA): "Ms. Roebuck said Rivermont's enrollment goal is always about 200 students, which she expects will be reached again because of large domestic and international interest in the school. She said she believes this interest stems from the rigorous, individualized curriculum and small class sizes at Rivermont."

Private schools seeing strong enrollments Private schools in the Quad-Cities are reporting an increase in enrollment.

Will merging two Lewiston schools help some students at the expense of others?

An example (from Lewiston, Maine) where an individualized curriculum works. "With more individualized curriculum, you, by design, respond to individual needs.”

Martel Elementary School kindergarten teacher Stephanie Hansen works with Aiden Lizotte during a classroom computer learning exercise last week. Also playing games that teach programming and promote learning are Cheyenne Foss, left, and Kalida Samare.

This is just a friendly reminder that parent teacher conferences are the 7th and 8th of April. If you have not emailed Leigh to reserve your time, please do as as soon as possible so we ensure you get the time you want. If you give her a couple of options, that would be great.

02/24/2016

Just a reminder that this Friday is our annual Bogus Basin Ski Trip. The bus will leave Sheridan promptly at 8:30 and return at 4;00.

If your student IS NOT going to Bogus that day we have decided to not take those students up the hill to hang out in the lodge. This is a required day of school so please have your student to school at the normal time.

Thanks so much! We are looking forward to a great day both up on the hill and down here in the valley.

02/24/2016

It is once again time to get parent-teacher conferences scheduled. This is a great time for us to make sure that your student is on track and that you are feeling comfortable and in the loop with your child's progress.

We will also review each students transcript if they are in 9th-12th grade to ensure that they have all the credits that they should have and if not what the plan is for making sure they have an on time graduation.

Conferences will be April 7th and 8th from 9-3. Leigh will be blocking out a 30 minute time frame for each student. If you have a time that works best for you, please let her know as soon as possible so that she can get you down and guarantee that time is all yours.

02/11/2016

We are on the downhill side to the weekend. Speaking of the weekend, this is a 3-day weekend with Presidents Day being on Monday. There will be no school on Monday the 15th.

Our ski trip is the 26th. If you have not gotten your stuff in I need it immediately. If your child is not skiing then we will have other things going on for those students as it is a required school day and will be an unexcused absence if they just choose not to show up. We highly encourage everyone to give it a try, but if they don't they are still expected at school that day.

The 22nd and 23rd we will have guest in our school all day, both days for our 6 year accreditation review. The members of the accreditation review board will be talking to some students and perhaps parents as well. This is a big event that requires months of preparation. We want to thank all of you that completed the online survey as it is one of the most highly looked at pieces in this process.

Another terrific example of how an individualized curriculum works in other schools:

“We were really looking at the smaller class size, the individualized curriculum — appreciating the uniqueness of the child, and not expecting him to adjust or conform to one style of learning”

Supporters need to contact members of House and Senate State Affairs TODAY, RIGHT NOW. IT'S TIME to ask them please vote YES on House Joint Resolution 1 which would amend the Idaho Constitution and clarify aid to students is not the same thing as aid to schools. If your legislators aren't cosponsors, ask them to join. Committee contact info is below; please reach out to all members of both committees.

This is the last chance to pass this until 2018. A constitutional amendment needs a two-thirds majority in both legislative bodies, and then it appears on the next general election ballot where it needs a simple majority to become law. It does not go to the governor's desk.

HJR 1 adds the following language to the Idaho Constitution at the end of Article IX, Section 5: " . . . nothing [in Section 5] shall be construed to prohibit the legislature or any county, city, town, township, school district, or other public corporation from making appropriations, payments, grants, or donations of public funds or moneys for the purpose of providing grants, scholarships, loans, or other assistance to students or parents of students for educational purposes."

This language makes clear that while public aid to private schools would remain impermissible, aid to STUDENTS is allowed.

The amendment gets Idaho to the point where we can start to discuss options for having the money follow the child to his school of choice. Idaho children will succeed when they have every school option open to them, and this amendment keeps all options in line with the Idaho Constitution.

It also would protect the Idaho Opportunity Scholarship from legal challenges. The Opportunity Scholarship is a publicly-funded scholarship serving 1765 students statewide, including 151 students at Northwest Nazarene University and Brigham Young University-Idaho. It also would protect current dual and concurrent high school/college credit programs, especially those at NNU where 40 students on campus and 1829 high school students earned 8400 credits last year.

The members of the House and Senate State Affairs Committees are:

House Joint Resolution 1 sent to State Affairs – Idaho Federation of Independent Schools 01/30/2016

House Joint Resolution 1 sent to State Affairs – Idaho Federation of Independent Schools

Idaho House Joint Resolution 1 is a constitutional amendment which would clarify that aid to students is not the same thing as aid to schools. It would get Idaho to a starting point where we could begin to talk about the money following the child to private schools. HJR 1 also would rectify a glaring inconsistency that currently allows Idaho public school students to have the state pay for classes at Northwest Nazarene University (high school/college concurrent credit) and BYU Independent Studies (middle and high school) both of which are church schools.

Please click the link below to reach out to members of the House and Senate State Affairs Committees. Please ask them to vote YES on HJR 1, and tell your personal stories about how having children in a private school has benefited their families.

For more information, contact Briana LeClaire, Executive Director, Idaho Federation of Independent Schools. She can be reached at [email protected] or 208-724-6311.

Hello everyone and happy Wednesday...

Just a couple of reminders.

1. You all received a survey by email that Sheridan needs to have completed for our every 6 year review for accreditation. It should just take a few moments and I can't tell you how much we would appreciate your help with this.

2. Finals Week...Please help your kids out by asking and reminding them of any studying or makeup assignments that they need to complete prior to the Friday cutoff.

3. Community Service Hours - Forms are due back in my office by Friday for the community service that your child completed this semester. They have until May to get their total hours done, but I must have a reporting of what they have done this semester. Even if they have all of it to do next semester I need a blank form with their name on it for their file.

Thanks so much

Leigh
