Class details for our first semester, the class sign up priority will be ranked by order of commitment by you, the parent, to teach two or more classes. We will give sign up priority for high school teachers this semester and as we grow we will develop a fair priority system for sign-ups. If you know that you are committed to this co-op and know what you would like to teach we will have an opportunity for you to sign up to teach those classes. We also have a list of suggestions for electives.
