Iliff Options Students

Our Philosophy:

It is our intent to assist parents as they Homeschool their children with the resources of Aurora Public Schools by providing certain classes to homeschoolers on Mondays.

About Our Program:

Iliff Options is an enrichment program only for children in grades K-12 and should be considered only 20% of a total Homeschool program. 

Mindy Prichard is the coordinator of the Iliff Options program. Joe Burton is our site principal who is an Aurora Public School principal.

Mindy Prichard Coordinator
APS Options Program and IEP / 504 Plans
The Options Program exists to supplement and support home school instruction and is limited in personnel, programs, and curricular offerings. The program makes every effort to meet each student’s educational needs but cannot duplicate the comprehensive Special Education programs found elsewhere.

The Options program can, however, provide some accommodations within the classroom. Our staff will work closely with parents to develop an appropriate 504 Plan for those students who need it. Students with more acute/severe educational needs requiring modifications will find the Options Program not a good fit for them. We do not have the staff or resources to write IEPs so we do not. In rare instances students that had former IEPs may be allowed into the program but no modifications will be made for that student, with the exception of 504 accommodations. Our Options counselor, Michele Cole, should be contacted to discuss the possibilities. She can be reached at michelle.cole@
