UTCH Davis-Weber Homeschool Co-Operative

A cooperative learning community for homeschool families in the Davis and Weber counties of Utah.

About the Davis/Weber Co-Op

UDWC stands for UTCH Davis/Weber Co-Operative and is an official co-op of the Utah Christian Home School Association. We are a homeschool co-op that meets weekly for 10 week fall and winter terms to provide group instruction in a variety of subjects.  We are a parent participation co-op and not a drop off program. Our host campus is Mountain View Baptist Church in Layton city in Davis county.  The church does not operate our co-op, it has offered the space as a ministry/out-reach.  Our co-op is made up of families who attend a wide variety of area churches.

Co-op 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 those courses teach material if it is a teaching rotation course.  Additionally, UDWC leadership, in conjunction with course coordinators, determine the total number of helping slots needing coverage throughout the entire schedule and divide them among the participants.  Therefore, some parents may serve as helpers in courses in addition to/other than those in which their students are enrolled.

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) 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.

Registration

UDWC fall term registration is now closed.  UTCH Davis-Weber Co-op will host a Visitor Day on November 3, 2016.
 The purpose is to allow parents/guardians/families who are considering future enrollment to learn about the
 cooperative and see it "in action".  The visitor day will include a building tour, discussion
 of policy (including expectations and code of conduct), question and answer
 time and an opportunity to visit classes (for some grade levels.)  Watch for more information posted here beginning October 13, 2016.

All visitor day and registration information is posted on this website.  For more registration information, please select the "Registration" Menu Option.

Please note, we are currently very close to our maximum enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year.  We welcome visitors to attend our fall visitor day; however, we do not anticipate a large number of openings during the winter term-we will have a list of open classes at the November Visitor Day.
