Parents' Guide to the Boarding Home Program.
Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau. Office of Public Information and Publications.
The Boarding Home Program was developed by the Alaska State Department of Education, Division of State-Operated Schools, to provide students living in an unincorporated area of rural Alaska, where no public high school is available, with an opportunity to continue their education. Established as an interim measure until more regional high school boarding facilities are constructed, the program utilizes families who provide boarding homes for participating students. Presented in this guide for "boarding home parents" are the standards for participation, along with discussions of financial arrangements, student health services, student employment, and the role of the boarding parents (with examples of what the "foster" parents might be expected to do for the student). Also, the role of the home-school coordinator is explained, and his responsibilities to the student and boarding family are listed. A boarding home parent application is appended. (LS)
