Upstream Learning – Copper River School District
Upstream Learning – formerly Copper River Correspondence Studies – has been serving families for several decades, originally providing support to students in remote areas of the Copper River Valley. In the 1990’s the program began enrolling students statewide. We continue to serve home-educated students locally and throughout Alaska by offering friendly, individualized educational support to families. Our name helps locate us geographically, as the Copper Valley is filled with many rivers and streams, including the mighty Copper River. Upstream Learning also reflects that home-educated students follow a unique learning path, often “swimming against the flow” while moving through their K-12 years.
Our program offices are located in Copper River’s District Office building in Glennallen. Our suite of rooms includes a family room, classroom/library with many educational resources for family check-out, and staff offices. We serve students in grades K-12, including those with special needs. We offer flexibility in curriculum choices and personalized support for our families.
Ramona Henspeter is the certified support teacher for families. Ramona taught her three children at home from kindergarten through high school, and is a ‘home school Mom’ with many years of varied experience. Lanette Phillips is the program assistant, and Michael Johnson is our Principal and also Superintendent of CRSD. Our Parent Advisory Board consists of four Upstream Learning parents and meets bi-monthly.
