How to enroll in Polyhistoria classes using charter funds
Polyhistoria is an approved vendor for multiple charter schools. If your learner is enrolled at a charter school home-study program, the school may make funds available for you to spend on learning materials and service providers such as online classes with Polyhistoria.
Enrolling in classes
If your charter school has approved Polyhistoria as a vendor, then it’s easy to apply your school funds to our classes. Here’s how the process works:
- You should reach out to your Education Specialist (ES) or other person who handles charter fund purchases at your school. Provide them with the full name of the class you would like to sign up for, along with your learner’s name and age.
- Your ES will decide whether or not to approve the purchase and will complete any other necessary steps on their end.
- Your school will send along a purchase order or voucher to Polyhistoria. Please note that the time between steps 2 and 3 varies from school to school and can take as long as a few weeks.
- Polyhistoria will process the purchase order or voucher within one business day of receiving it from your school. We will enroll you in the requested class and send over an email confirmation once we have done so.
After step 1, there’s no need for additional action on your part to enroll in courses, but if you’d like to reserve a spot in a class without waiting for your school, follow the steps below.
Reserving a place in a class
If you want to reserve a place in a class, either because it may sell out or because it is starting very soon, you can simply enroll via credit card. We consider this a deposit to hold your place, and will refund the deposit as soon as we receive the purchase order from your charter school. However, if the school does not approve a purchase order for that class and enrollment, the cardholder will be responsible for this payment.
Approved vendor programs
Polyhistoria is a pre-approved vendor for multiple charter schools in California, Alaska, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Canada. If you’d like to register for Polyhistoria classes, ask your charter school to partner with us. Please have them reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will start the process to become an approved vendor with your school.
