Guidelines for Scheduling Educator's Directory Lessons

Individual home schools must request a visit as a class through the home school association of which they are members. Home school association classes must have a minimum of 12 students and no more than 27 students, plus a teacher and an appropriate number of chaperones. The home school association’s teacher is responsible for coordinating the field trip and supervision of all students. Students must be grade appropriate to the lessons being requested. Requests are subject to the deadline listed in the Educator’s Guide. The center cannot accept requests from individual home school parents, nor can we be responsible for organizing a class made up of home school students. Home schools who are members of associations outside of Greenville County will be charged the lesson costs. According to our safety plan, all persons attending a lesson must wear nametags.
