We are a Christian based group for Home Educators/Homeschooling Parents. WCCHE maintains a clear delineation between Virtual Charter public schools, Private Schools, and Home-Based Private Education Programs (Homeschools). WCCHE accepts only HBPEPs (Homeschools) parents, meaning those filing the DPI-1206 form, for membership unless a conditional membership is applied for and approved by the WCCHE Board. Conditional memberships require board approval and are not automatically renewed each year. A Homeschool is a family that has filed the PI-1206 Form with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Please note that the State of Wisconsin defines Virtual Charter Schools as public schools, and all children enrolled in them are considered public school students even though they may receive instruction at home. Students enrolled in Virtual Charter Schools or in Private Schools are not included on PI-1206 forms and are not considered to be Homeschooled in Wisconsin. At this time, we are not accepting new memberships for families that utilize ONLY Virtual Charter public schools or Private Schools. Thank you for understanding.
Please note that the above delineation is in no way meant to be a “judgment” on families who utilize brick-and-mortar or virtual/charter public schools for some of their children. In fact, WCCHE respects the right of the parents in each family unit to choose whatever they deem to be an appropriate educational program for each child. Wisconsin Homeschooling Parents Association (WHPA) and the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), both strongly recommend that homeschool associations insure that public/taxpayer funds are not used within private homeschool groups. Our membership policy is simply meant to protect private homeschoolers from possible government intrusion that may occur when taxpayer funds are used for private homeschool activities.
