What's My Next Step?
I’m interested in home schooling, or at least learning more about your program. What do I do now?
Review the Letter of Introduction and Getting Started documents:
1) Letter of Introduction

These will introduce you to our program and help you better understand the services we provide. We would also be happy to mail you a paper copy of these documents. Just call (319) 683-2280 and ask to have Letter of Introduction & Getting Started information sent to you.
If you live in a district outside of Mid-Prairie:
If you are thinking about joining our program next year and you live out of the Mid-Prairie district, you will need to open enroll*. Paperwork must be completed in February for the March 1st deadline. Therefore, if you are considering this, or know anyone who is, you can find the needed application online or call the HSAP Resource Center and we will send the form to you. Click here for the online information.
In order to make sure the form is filled out correctly, please connect with someone in our program before you submit it to the districts involved.
After reading over information, call the MPHSAP Library to set up an interview.
Application for open enrollment is available to anyone who does not reside in the Mid-Prairie School District but who wishes to enroll in the MPHSAP. An open enrollment application must be filled out and a copy sent to both the family’s resident district and to the Mid-Prairie District offices. Forms are available through the MPHSAP Library, from your resident district offices, or online.
Deadlines for open enrollment application are as follows:
The completed form must be filed with both the resident and receiving districts by March 1st preceding the school year for which open enrollment is desired. Exceptions to this deadline:
1.) Families wishing to enroll kindergarten students must file forms with the receiving district before September 1st of the school year of enrollment in kindergarten.
2.) The “good cause” category for filing after the March 1st deadline relates to a change in the student’s residence.
3.) Some school districts may allow a student to open enroll out of their district after the deadlines stated. This can be decided by the resident district on a case-by-case basis.
