UDWC Membership & Registration Info
Our co-op has reached our maximum enrollment for the 2023-2024 co-op year. If you would like to join the waitlist, please email [email protected]. Families are added to that list first come, first served. If you have not already attended, please plan to attend the next available visitor day or park day required to join.
If we have any openings before before the winter term begins, we will reach out to families in the order of the waitlist, to see if anyone would like to register at that time. We do not anticipate those openings; but if you are interested, be sure to get on the list!
If you have joined the Utah Christian Homeschool Association (UTCH), you have access to all the support group activities and opportunities available through the Davis/Weber Google Group. Many people post messages about field trips and gatherings through that group. It is also a great place to hear about the family activities offered through the various local churches that start up in the fall.
UDWC CoOp Philosophy
UDWC is a Parent Participation co-op.
Co-op leadership, in conjunction with course coordinators, determine the course schedule for the year. Parents of students enrolled in the co-op teach the courses.
Additionally, UDWC leadership, in conjunction with course coordinators, determine the total number of Helper Units needed throughout the entire schedule and divide them among all participants. Therefore, parents serve as helpers in courses in addition to/other than those in which their students are enrolled.
Our cooperative is "re-designed" every year as each participating family considers which courses their own children need and what they are willing to volunteer to coordinate. So...the cooperative course offerings change each year.
PAST COURSE EXAMPLES:
Preschool skills, movement and art; Science exploration and lab courses (several from Apologia curriculum) for all grades; Theater Arts; Writing/Composition; Art Studio/Drawing; Physical Education; and much more.
We ask families who choose to participate in this co-op to commit to participation for the full year and regular attendance, missing only due to illness or emergency. We ask families in UDWC to make co-op attendance a priority and schedule family vacations, activities, and appointments on different days. If you cannot commit to regular attendance and participation for the full year, UDWC is not the right co-op for your family.
UDWC is volunteer dependent and the short terms (10 weeks in the fall and 10 weeks in the winter) mean that every week’s materials are very important for students to master materials presented. In addition, withdrawals during the co-op year burden coordinators, teachers, and co-op families with the time-consuming responsibility of filling empty teaching and helping slots.
