Additional Questions:






Gulf Coast Christian Home Educators Association (GCCHEA) functions because of the cooperative efforts of all its members. We must all work together to make things happen for our group.  I understand that those in leadership and other positions are also busy home educating their children.


As a member of GCCHEA, I am expected to:


ØMeet the requirements of the Florida State Law for my homeschool.


Ø Pay membership dues in the amount of $20 per family for the year (June - May). I understand that, of this amount, $10 is given as a donation to the Home Education Foundation (flhef.org), a homeschool rights organization at the Florida capitol. 

Ø       Be responsible for the safety and conduct of my children as well as any other children in my care at all GCCHEA functions.

Ø       Be aware that wherever we are, my family is always representing other home schooling families and GCCHEA..

Ø       Be diligent to protect the privacy of all our members.

Ø       Be careful when speaking on behalf of GCCHEA in the event of doing informal public interviews. The Steering Committee will be given advance notice when doing a formal interview.

Ø       Be an active participant in GCCHEA.
