Homeschooling Vs. Public Education At Home

It is our position that members will be currently homeschooling at least one of their children.­ Homeschooling is considered by CHEER to be schooling a child at home using curricula chosen by parents rather than receiving public funding of homeschool curricula and supplies.­ Homeschooling may include using co-ops and non-public funded classroom settings taught by teachers other than the parent.

If other children are being schooled though the public school system, whether attending a local public school or utilizing a publically funded school program in the home setting (k-12, or EPIC), those children are not considered homeschooled.  Students of Public school programs cannot participate in our co-op classes.  When it comes to CHEER activities, any members children can participate in student activities, as long as the parent stays and supervises their children.
