We’re a Public Charter School

Dallas Community School is a tuition-free, public charter school for students who are learning in a home/community-based environment. Students cannot be dual-enrolled at DCS and another public school. We emphasize and empower individualized learning that includes access to financial support (allotment funds) for curriculum, support from licensed teachers, enrichment classes, field trips, and social activities.

Resources for Home/Community-Based Learning

Dallas Community School engages and supports  students in western Oregon through several programs and services. Each student receives access to a $700 allotment that can be used toward standards-based curriculum, lessons and school supplies. All students are paired with an Education Guide who supports students and their Learning Coaches (parents or other assigned guardian). Guides, Coaches and students work together to develop a Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) that describes learning goals for the coming year.  Once the Personalized Learning Plan is developed, parents work with their Guide to obtain curriculum and materials that best meet the needs of their individual student. Attendance at our site in Dallas is not required. However, students can participate in optional morning and afternoon enrichment classes at our site and at other sites in the area. You can see our current afternoon enrichment class offerings and field trips on our website.
