On Monday, April 17, 2017, HB2389 passed the House 41-17 and is on its way to the Governor for signing. This is a huge win in the recognition battle for Arizona homeschoolers.
AFHE recently shared information about an administrative win that would give homeschool students equal access to jobs through Arizona state agencies using their homeschool graduation credentials (parent-issued diploma and high school transcript) without being required to take the GED. HB2389 creates a statutory solution solidifying the administrative agreements to accept the graduation credentials of homeschooled students.
AFHE has been hard at work defending homeschool graduation credentials with Arizona state agencies. Law-abiding, hard-working Arizona homeschool graduates deserve to have their homeschool diplomas and transcripts honored.
2017 graduating Arizona homeschool seniors are invited to apply for a scholarship to assist with college or trade school tuition and books. Several designated scholarships are also available, including one for the child of a single parent and another for a graduating senior who is starting his/her own business.
AFHE is planning an extra special conference geared specifically toward encouraging and equipping parents who are homeschooling their children who have special needs and/or who are gifted learners October 6-7, 2017 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Each year AFHE hosts a graduation ceremony to celebrate with Arizona homeschool families and to honor the very special milestones of graduation from junior high and senior high.
