Legislative Action Alert – Support HB2389

Legislative Action Alert – Support HB2389

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.
