Homeschool Coordination in Ghana: What do Our Homeschool Coordinators do?
An increasing number of parents have chosen in recent years to actively oversee their children’s education. You are most likely one of them if you are reading this. When you are dissatisfied with the outcomes you receive from traditional school, it just seems to be the ideal thing to do, especially for stay-at-home parents. However, a lot of parents give up homeschooling simply because it requires a lot to put everything together perfectly. I’ll describe how Homeschool Coordinators help many parents who homeschool their children in this article.
Why are people opting for Homeschooling?
As a parent, you might wonder whether the conventional educational system can meet your child’s unique requirements, abilities, hobbies, or talents. Also, some parents have mentioned the necessity of extracurricular activity flexibility. You can also worry about the moral and spiritual basis your child is developing. You might need to handle any unique health issues your child may be experiencing. These are only a few of the many reasons why parents decide to homeschool their children, and in an ideal world, every parent should be able to select the most suitable approach.

What do Homeschool coordinators do?
Homeschool Coordinators assist and oversee these four main areas of hoeschooling
- Homeschool Curriculum with Weekly Schedule
- Homeschool Classroom Setup and Resources.
- Homeschool Focus Monitoring
- Homeschool Examination and Cumulative Record Keeping.
Homeschool Curriculum with Weekly Schedule
Under this category, Homeschool Coordinators will assist you to choose a curriculum that best suits your child’s needs. We start this process with an interview that gets us introduced to your child and helps us to understand what will work best for them. We also take into consideration the goal you have in mind or the purpose for which you want to homeschool. If, for instance, you want your child to have a Christ-centered education, we have different curricula we can introduce to you. We also design customized curricula for parents with peculiar goals or special needs children. We just help you get what is best suited to the needs of your child. The most important part of this is where we develop an academic calendar or weekly schedule for you or your child’s teacher.
Homeschool Classroom Setup and Resources.
After your curriculum and scheme of work are set, the next step is to select the right teaching and learning materials for your child and their teacher. Procuring textbooks and other teaching and learning materials for the child is another thing we do under this category. Most of the time, parents don’t know what to buy and where to get them. We provide you with a list according to the child’s level and the curriculum chosen. If need be, we actually do the shopping and deliver to you.
There are online and offline resources that will help enrich your child’s homeschooling experience and we have a whole bank full of them. Contact us and let’s create an interactive learning environment for your child.
Homeschool Focus Monitoring
We also have a monitoring system for tracking your child’s progress each month. The Homeschool Coordinator may visit the child once a month to ensure they are on track and making progress. Visits are substituted with virtual meetings online when distance is a factor. These meetings can be arranged outside the home to break the monotony and are sometimes done with other homeschoolers for the purpose of socialization.

Homeschool Examination and Cumulative Record Keeping.
The most important part of education is evaluation because that’s what actually tells you if your child is learning or not. Under this category of Homeschool help, we conduct examinations for your child each term and ensure that their cumulative record is updated after each exam. We also plan interventions to help your child improve in areas of challenge. This aspect of homeschooling is one of the most challenging and it helps to have someone else (an external examiner) set the questions instead of having their teacher set the exam questions. One advantage of letting your children write external exams is the fact that their curriculum or their teacher could have missed a topic in a subject. Even if the student is not able to answer that question, the teacher can browse the topic with them before the school year actually ends. That way, they are exposed to most, if not everything they are to know for their level.
