*Important 2019-2020 GFT Info*

We’ve been busy prepping this summer for an excellent opening to the 2019-2020 academic year and hope everyone is having a safe, fun, and cool summer!  It’s been an exciting and busy time for us, and we look forward to welcoming all our new families in September!  Please read this message in its entirety to make sure you don’t miss out on important upcoming information!

FYI

We’re often asked what is a requirement for families and what the tutorial/umbrella “handles” for the families.  Now that July 1 has come and gone, families with a child new to homeschooling who have not yet informed their respective counties need to do so.  You can find the “Maryland Homeschool Letter of Intent” herePlease complete all pertinent information and mail/email it to your county’s homeschool liaison.  While confirmation is not necessary if you keep a record, as a mom, I like to know it’s been received and will check to make sure they have received ours.  This document needs to be sent to the county no later than 15 days prior to the start of the school year and only needs to be completed once per child (not once per school year).

Umbrella members: you recently received an email outlining the umbrella registration process.  If you were not on that email and would like to join us or missed it the first time around, here is a summary of the important pieces of the email:

“Until August 1, 2019, families pay a flat fee of $75.00 for the year.  After August 1, 2019, families will be charged $100.  Payment can be submitted through the following link.  Please put your name and your child(ren)’s full name(s) in the “notes” section: paypal.me/GFTTowson

Once payment has been sent, please complete the information in this webform to complete registration:  http://bit.ly/GFTUmbrellaInfo

    Your application will be reviewed and, once payment is confirmed, you will receive all pertinent information regarding the umbrella in your email… including the review sheet and Letter of Verification for Student Enrollment.
   The GFT Umbrella will do an in-person, peer-review in mid-May of 2020.  Should this be an issue for your family, please contact us prior to registering.”
Tutorial Members:  While the cost of the umbrella is included in your tuition, you will receive the umbrella review sheet and Verification of student enrollment once you complete online registration information here: http://bit.ly/GFTStudents

Anyone new to homeschooling: You complete the “Letter of Intent to Homeschool” and send to your county
