FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q:

What area (towns) does your group cover?

A:

Our group area is quite large, with members in Loxley, Daphne, Foley, Lillian and Perdido Key, FL.  We welcome any families within that lower Baldwin County area that might be able to participate in our activities.  We try to keep things centrally located with most of our events occurring in the Foley general area. 

Q:

I'm new to homeschooling in AL....what is the law here?

A:

We are simply a support group for homeschool families.....we are not a "covering" organization.    B.E.A.C.H. expects you to homeschool in compliance with Alabama law.  Legal requirements can be located at www.hslda.org, www.southeastlawinstitute.org, and www.chefofalabama.org.  

Q:

Why Homeschool-Life.com?

A:

We chose homeschool-life.com because it was an affordable way for our homeschooling group to have a web site. A web site, we felt, was an excellent way to share our group information and stay organized.  Most of our families access the internet and had email so it was a logical fit.  For the families that did not have the internet or email, they use the Public Library FREE internet access and signed up for a FREE Yahoo email address.  Our web site allows us to easily schedule all our group activities.  Before, planning large group events and keeping everyone informed to recent changes was difficult and chaotic.  Now, with Homeschool-Life.com, scheduling and information sharing is a breeze.
We would encourage all our families to take advantage of the family web pages.  The kids have a great time learning how to design web pages!
