Parents are making difficult choices about how their children will learn this year. Among these choices, many parents are considering homeschooling for the first time. If this is one of the options you are weighing, it can helpful to get an inside look from an expert.

The Library District is offering a program that will help you imagine your first semester of homeschooling. This virtual information session includes a panel of experienced homeschool participants who provide their insights for parents considering homeschooling.

You will hear from Washington Homeschool Organization Advocate and longtime homeschool parent, Jen Garrison Stuber. Jen shares information about the legal requirements for homeschoolers, discuss different approaches to homeschooling, and help you brainstorm what homeschooling might look like in your household.

You will also hear from homeschool graduate, Alaetheia Garrison Stuber, about her experience as a homeschool student. And a librarian presents information about the library resources and services specially designed for homeschool families.

Parents have until September 15, 2020, to file their Declaration of Intent to Homeschool (link to PDF form) with the superintendent of the public school district within which the parent and student resides.

Sign up for this online session to get your questions answered as you make your decision. We look forward to seeing you there!
