Homeschooling and Outside Classes

“Exactly what classes can homeschool students take outside the home and still meet the North Carolina legal definition of homeschool student?” This is a question that has been frequently asked for many years of NCHE board members and staff, North Carolina Department of Non-Public Education (DNPE) personnel and homeschool leaders.

Virtual Public Schools and Homeschooling Don’t Mix

On June 18, homeschool parents in Iredell County received an invitation from Iredell-Statesville Schools (ISS) superintendent, Brady Johnson, to attend a “community based meeting to discuss the idea of a partnership with the school system.” The primary purpose of the meeting was to discuss the possibility of “giving parents in Iredell County access to virtual charter school curriculum at no cost.”

Challenges and Adaptations

Our NCHE board of directors recently met for a three day planning meeting. The stated goals of NCHE are to provide, promote and protect. We strive to provide information and support for those of you who homeschool. We promote homeschooling as a great way to educate children. We work to protect your right to direct your children’s education and homeschool in this state.
