How to Renew Your Planet Homeschool Membership

Join Planet Homeschool

Welcome back!

Before renewing, please review our co-op’s Community Expectations and the policies linked to therein and our co-op’s Course Schedule.

Community Expectations Course Schedule.

Renewing your membership is and registering for next semester’s classes is a four-step process:

Step 1: Update Your Family Profile.

Step 1a: Review our co-op’s Community Expectations and the policies linked to therein with your students.

All students must sign a Student Agreement before the first day of class.

Step 1b: COVID-19 and In-Person Classes:

A Vaccination Affidavit is required for those who wish to attend in-person classes & events. This policy reflects the preferences of our co-op’s members and instructors as well as guidance from public health officials. Members who have previously completed a Vaccination Affidavit do not need to fill out a new one unless a household member’s status has changed. Those who are signing up only for online classes & events do not need to complete this form.

Step 2: Pay Your Membership Fee.

Statement of Account

Step 3: Wait for Your Membership to Be Updated

One of our co-op’s volunteers will update your account from Membership Pending to Current Member. Most updates happen within a day but other demands on our volunteers’ time may occasionally result in longer delays.

Step 4: Register for Classes

You will then be ready to register for classes …as soon as registration opens for current members.

Membership Renewal Troubleshooting

If you have updated your Family Profile and paid your membership fee, but your family’s entry in our co-op’s Member Directory is still marked as Membership Pending or as Membership In-Process:

  1. Double-check to make sure you updated your Family Profile and paid your membership fee.

    If your family’s entry in our co-op’s Member Directory is marked as “Membership In-Process” then at least one step was missing the last time your account was reviewed.

  2. Has it been at least 3 days since you updated your Family Profile and paid your membership fee?

    Most of the time, your account will be updated within a day, but sometimes our co-op’s volunteers need to prioritize other parts of their lives, so please allow them at least 3 days to review your account.

  3. If you have updated your Family Profile and paid your membership fee and allowed enough time for a volunteer to update your account, please contact our co-op’s Lead Volunteers at [email protected].

    It is helpful but not necessary to include a list of which steps you’ve completed and when (if known).

Membership Renewal Timeline

An invoice is emailed to all current members prompting them to pay their membership fee for the next semester shortly before registration opens (exact dates are posted to our co-op’s calendar).

  • If you have not renewed your membership before the start of the next semester, your account will be “parked.”
    • Parked members have access only to their family profile and their accounting page (including their Membership Renewal invoice), as well as to all public pages.
  • To re-active your account, you’ll need to renew your co-op membership.
  • If you are taking a short break from or know you will not be returning to PHS, please let our co-op’s Lead Volunteers know via an email to [email protected].
