AFHE helps Arizona homeschool families understand SB 1184 (2019 bill) and the impact to homeschool graduation requirements.
The 2019 Legislative Session is underway at the Arizona State Capitol. AFHE’s Legislative Team is reading bills and watching for issues that may impact homeschool freedom.
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.
AFHE supports HB2536, which will ensure that homeschool students who take classes at Joint Technical Education Districts (JTEDs) or similar schools that offer dual enrollment opportunities receive college credit in the same manner as their non-homeschooled peers.
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.
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.
