My name is Lee. I’m a homeschooling mother of six. I would love to meet all of you through email and Facebook, but I don’t have time! You can read about the curriculum on the About or How To pages. If you still have questions, please be considerate and read through the following questions before writing me or asking the community on Facebook. (Click “Join Group.”)
I’ve found a problem with a link.
- If you are using a copy of the course, a PDF, or Evernote for example, please check on the main page to see if there is a new link already in place.
- If the link requires a paid subscription or it opens up to the wrong website, please email me at the address at the bottom of this page.
- If the page opens but the PDF, game or video isn’t loading, check our Troubleshooting Guide. You can also wait and try again later or try on a different browser. We suggest using Firefox to access many activities.
- If the page says that it’s under construction, we’ll probably just wait until it’s back and not switch it.
- Please ask on Facebook to see if it’s just you or if others are having the same problem.
How do we set up lessons?
Here is our quick start guide.
What is the password?
For Easy Peasy password-protected answer pages, the password is parentsonly (all one word, all lower case).
The game/video won’t load on my iPad, tablet, phone…
IPad doesn’t support Flash Player, which a lot of things use. Here is an article about different browsers that allow Flash on iPad. I’m sure you can google up what you need to make it work.
Where are the tests?
Every EP high school course has grading systems built into it which include testing. If you are using other online courses outside of EP, there are no tests to use with them. If a test is not accessible on the site you are using, then there is no test available. EP can’t provide tests for courses outside the curriculum.
Where are the answers?
I am hoping to have as many answers as possible on every course. If there is no answer posted, then I don’t have it. You can submit answers if you think they would be helpful to others.
Do you have a scope and sequence?
You can read the course descriptions on each individual course page. If you would like to make a scope and sequence, I will post it for others.
Does this meet my state’s requirements? Will these courses count for high school credit?
Every state has its own requirements. Learn your state’s requirements at the HSLDA. Google that with your state name. The site is geared to meet Pennsylvania’s requirements. It has 180 days of assignments for 1 credit courses. In some states your child could play video games for four years and you could call him a high school graduate. My state, Pennsylvania, is not one such state. Here are their guidelines for what “counts.” To count as a completed high school course, a student can do ANY of the following: complete two-thirds of a textbook, have 120 daily logged entries, have 120 hours of logged study, complete a ten-page research paper, complete a college course, or pass an AP exam. If you follow Easy Peasy, you’ll have 180 “daily logged entries.” You’ll be way ahead of the game.
While some colleges will not require a diploma, others will want an “official” document proving your child has graduated. It’s a good idea to find out how to get an official diploma for your child, so they are prepared for wherever they head after high school.
NOTE! Your local high school does not have to accept your homeschool credits. Putting a child back in school can be difficult. Each school has the authority to accept or reject your credits if they are not accredited (which they aren’t from EP). It’s easier to get your credits accepted by colleges.
Is EP accepted by the NCAA?
The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) doesn’t pre-approve curriculum, so I can’t say that your EP courses will definitely be accepted. I have talked with them and written them and filled out forms, so they should have on file that we are a curriculum. Someone had run into trouble before because they labeled us a virtual program. They do have a hard time understanding what EP is. You are in charge of grading your child’s EP courses. The online graded quizzes are really like an answer key in the back of the book. You are the one writing the grade down and giving your child each grade. It’s important that you describe your use of EP as if it were similar to a textbook. There’s something to read and questions to answer and answers provided, but you are the teacher (even if your child works independently) and you are in charge of grading and transcripts, etc. If you say you aren’t the teacher, you can’t get the credit awarded. You are the teacher. There is no other teacher interacting with your child. They will ask for books used. You can list the site. Don’t list something like Georgia Virtual. That will just confuse them. I would say something like “more than 350 links were used,” than trying to list anything specific other than our website.
Will this site stay free? I don’t understand how this can be free.
Read this please.
I would not be able to homeschool if it weren’t for this site.
I would love to hear your story. Send me a note. My address is at the bottom of the page.
How can I help?
Let me know about websites disappearing on us. You can even suggest replacements. Answer questions posted by others on our Facebook group. Maybe you have expertise in an area and can help with answer keys. Let me know.
How can I thank you enough? Where can I send a donation?
Still have questions? Ask the community at the Facebook Group. There is also a Facebook group for the high school site and groups for different states and countries. There is a group that shares extra resources they use with their children. I do not supplement the curriculum, and I don’t believe there is a need to. The main group page is for EP only and not to share about other resources. I want to keep it Easy Peasy and don’t want anyone (including myself) overwhelmed with the endless influx of “great” resources, even if they are free.
