4. That parents who teach in the Co-op, or leads on the Steering Team sign a Statement of Faith.

6. There are several questions to answer at the end of the registration. Answering these is important as it helps us keep track of important information for our non-profit documentation, and helps us get to know you better so that we can better serve you. 

(Please understand the nature and scope of this Support Group: we are NOT specifically a Co-op and joining BCHE does not assure your entry into the annual Co-op classes. Enrollment is limited because of space considerations. Your willingness to teach a class will aid in your being a part of co-op. BCHE is a support group and offers numerous opportunities for social interaction and ways to make friends in the homeschooling community. The Co-op is just one part of what BCHE does. There are many ways to make friends and find support in your homeschooling journey.) We encourage you to explore the other homeschool support groups in our area. 

Make sure you save the user name and password you just entered because you will need them to log in.
