AFHE helps Arizona homeschool families understand SB 1184 (2019 bill) and the impact to homeschool graduation requirements.
Arizona homeschoolers ask regularly if the civics test requirement for high school graduation applies to them. AFHE answers this frequently asked question.
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.
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.
