PSP fees are paid after your student is officially enrolled.

The Packet includes an Enrollment Acknowledgement of:

Immunizations are not required for homeschool students.

Under Senate Bill 277, as of January 1, 2016 personal belief exemptions are no longer permitted in California.

An amendment to that bill exempts students of home-based instruction and students enrolled in a private school satellite program such as our PSP who do not receive in-person classroom-based instruction.


This is simply a written statement by the parent and is used only for our annual statistical reporting to the state.


​We are required to annually track and report number of students and number of vaccinations to the Immunization Department of the California Department of Public Health. No personal identifiers are reported to the state.
