AFHE’s legislative team has been hard at work on behalf of Arizona homeschoolers this legislative session. We are pleased to report that HB2536 was signed into law on March 29, 2018 by Governor Doug Ducey.
One of the questions we are asked regularly is whether there is a tax credit for homeschoolers or if homeschool materials can be deducted from one’s income taxes. AFHE shares information to help answer this question.
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.
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.
There are a number of misconceptions about homeschooling in Arizona. Here are 10 myths you might have heard and the truth about each.
