Ft. Lee Families Welcome

TCHE has always been around for the military families stationed at Ft. Lee.  We are a stable, organized homeschool support group that has many military families involved.  We understand that your familiy may not be here very long, that's ok, we're here for you whether you're here for 6 mths or 2 years.  Please visit us at one of our meetings to get more information or join now at "Request Membership".   


Homeschool Filing Information for short term military stays:
Under VA homeschool law you are required to file a notice of intent (see forms) with the school district you are living in while you are here.   Unless you file under the religious exemption statute you will be required to submit proof of achievement to the superintendent by Aug. 1.  If you are leaving before the school year is complete you are not required to submit the proof of achievement because you would then be in another school district somewhere else.  But if you are leaving, for example, in July, you would still be required to submit proof of achievement.  Please read the laws on the "Forms" page for more detailed information on children who have not reached the age of 6 by Sept. 30 and information on standardized testing.  You may call Jan with any questions at 804-541-6307 about joining TCHE or call (HEAV) Home Educators Association of VA 804-278-9200. 
You may also email her at: leader@tcheofva.org
