PACESC, LLC NOW SERVES HOMESCHOOLING FAMILIES ACROSS THE NATION!


Families can register for services from states that offer little to no accountability.





*******************

Fee Schedule:

(All SC Accountability Association Memberships... $40.00)

NOTE that all memberships EXPIRE on May 31st. By that time you will need to renew to continue to homeschool into the summer to complete attendance requirements and material if necessary.

  • Homeschool Membership Period
    (June 1st - May 31st)... $40.00

Membership fee is per family/ per membership period... is due at time of application... is not prorated... and is non-refundable.

IT IS POLICY!:   Effective Immediately!

SC Homeschool Law requires that a parent or legal guardian teaching their child must have at least a High School Diploma or GED. To protect PACESC's accountability association and every member that is depending on us... PACESC must be sure every member family has at least one parent/legal guardian in compliance with this part of the statute. Therefore, the newly revised Enrollment Application now has questions to that cover educational compliance of the parent/legal guardian. The Parent/Teacher Educational Compliance Form and the older Notary Form have been removed.

Are you using your computer to keep valuable records for your homeschool?  Are your children using the computer to do their lessons?  Can you afford to lose those records or your child's hard work?

Every year, 43% of computer users lose irreplaceable emails, photos, documents and files.

Now you can use the same same safe, secure system I use!  Have you system automatically backup without you even thinking about it and then restore it with just a few clicks of the mouse when you need to.

I have had families lose their lesson plans, grades, and children's school work and have no way to recover the information!  DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU.

OK... NOW IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME!! ...  AND CARBONITE WORKED JUST AS PROMISED TO TOTALLY RESTORE ALL OF MY VALUABLE FILES AND GET ME BACK UP AND RUNNING WITH JUST A FEW KEYBOARD STRIKES AND CLICKS OF THE MOUSE ON MY NEW COMPUTER.  THAT'S RIGHT!  I HAD MY COMPUTER COMPLETELY CRASH.  I HAD TO GET A NEW REPLACEMENT COMPUTER AND BE UP AND RUNNING QUICK SO AS NOT TO LET ANY OF MY MEMBERS DOWN.  CARBONITE RESTORED ALL OF MY FILES AND I DID NOT LOSE OR COMPROMISE ANY MEMBER INFORMATION OR FILES. 

I CAN NOT SAY HOW INVALUABLE THIS SERVICE IS TO ME AND I WILL NOT OWN ANOTHER COMPUTER THAT IS NOT BACKED UP AUTOMATICALLY WITH CARBONITE.  THE AUTOMATIC, ONLINE, BACKUP SYSTEM.  KEEP YOUR FILES, DOCUMENTS, EMAILS, AND PICTURES SECURE IN CASE OF A COMPUTER VIRUS OR CRASH. DON'T LET YOUR CHILD'S SCHOOL WORK AND RECORDS BE LOST!
