House Bill 2369: Homeschool Equality in Guaranteed Admission

Sponsor:
Not applicable.

Summary:
This bill requires the Arizona Board of Regents to write guaranteed admissions policies that treat homeschoolers equally. The applicable wording is short but powerful: "The board shall establish policies for GUARANTEED admission that assure fair and equitable access to students in this state from public, private, charter and home schools." The bill is now codified in Arizona Revised Statutes § 15-1626.

Status:
This bill did not originally have anything to do with homeschooling. However, with the addition of the Waring Floor Amendment, quoted above, it became a bill that impactsed Arizona homeschool families directly.

This bill passed both the House and Senate on May 26, 2004 and was signed into law on June 3, 2004.

Action Requested:
No action requested, the bill has passed. Thank you for contacting your Senator and Representatives.

HSLDA's Position:
Support. This bill would ensure that homeschoolers have the same opportunity as any other student to obtain guaranteed access to Arizona's state colleges.
