All SIDES students in our K - 9 program require the support of a Home Facilitator. A Home Facilitator can be a parent, a grandparent, or an adult who is designated by the parent or guardian to support the student in the home each day. SIDES teachers interact regularly with the Home Facilitator to support learning in the home. Click here for more information about our K - 9 Program.
