2017 was a milestone year for homeschooling in Arizona. HB2389 was one of 342 bills signed into law and gives diploma equivalency to homeschoolers with Arizona state agencies.
Producing a homeschool high school transcript is more important than ever. Not only is it an encouraging synopsis of your student’s high school years, and not only is it necessary to apply for college, but now it is extremely helpful for applying to work for all state governmental agencies. Because of the 2017 AFHE bill, Arizona HB 2389, all state governmental agencies will be accepting homeschool transcripts without needing an accompanying GED. Arizona really is one of the very best states in which to homeschool, thanks in great part to the work Arizona Families for Home Education has done since 1983.
Friday, May 26, 2017 was a very special evening as 162 Arizona homeschool senior high and 35 junior high graduates were honored. The auditorium of Dream City Church was filled with more than 2,600 family members, friends, and fellow homeschoolers who came to cheer on these young men and women who have been lovingly taught at home by their parents.
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.
