Connecting to other homeschoolers is likely the best resource you’ll have. Reach out to multiple sources with different experiences and then make the best decision for your family. The below resources will help you to explore multiple options and be better informed.
HEAV – Home Educators Association of Virginia. This non-profit group is a wealth of information and is constantly vigilant for any changes that effect homeschoolers. Make plans to attend their annual convention. www.heav.org
HSLDA - www.hslda.org - We recommend that homeschooling families join HSLDA. Even if you never experience legal trouble yourself, your HSLDA membership will help enable other homeschooling families to get the legal help they need and will help defend our right to homeschool here in Newport News. Membership in HSLDA also gives you personal access to the legal staff; HSLDA's experienced high school, special needs, and Toddlers to Tweens consultants; and discounts through HSLDA's PerX program. (For more information about HSLDA's many benefits, see www.hslda.org.) SEEDS members SAVE $15 on the HSLDA membership price when you enter our Discount Group code on the HSLDA membership form!
