As per the Funding Manual from Alberta Education:
Home Education and Shared Responsibility Grant - The Home Education Grant supports educational choice for students and parents. For each home education student, the school authority is provided 50 per cent of the funding to support the home education student, and 50 per cent of the funding is provided to the parent and/or guardian as reimbursement for instructional materials and services that support the instructional program at home. Furthermore, parents who submit receipts for at least 75% of eligible expenses will receive the entire $850.00.
Students in home schooling programs receive reimbursement for some of the programming and materials needed to educate their child at home. This is meant to be a guide as to how that money can be legally allocated.
Funding that is given to parents are based on several principles:
- The reimbursement asked for is directly related to the home schooling plan the parent has written and submitted
- There has been a detailed receipt or invoice submitted
- Reimbursement CANNOT be for any form of personal remuneration for the parent; or to pay for travel costs or other expenses usually required to be paid by a parent of a student who is enrolled in a school operated by a board or private school.
