We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know

national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.

2. Pennsylvania: Family Encounters "Multiple Occupancy Registration"

HSLDA helped a homeschool family when a local public school official
asked them to fill out "occupancy" forms to verify whether they
resided within the school district.

3. Scholarship Search

Scholarships take time and energy to find. Once your children are in
high school, it's time to start looking. A good place to begin is the
list on HSLDA's high school website. Also check sources on the
federal, state, and local levels including organizations through which
your teens participate. Don't forget to contact schools of interest
for information about their scholarships.

4. Economics and Government for Your High Schooler

This election season, everyone is talking about the economy and the
role of government. Is your high schooler ready to participate in the
discussion and make an impact on our nation's future? Grow your
student's knowledge this spring with an AP Macroeconomics or AP US
Government and Politics course.

8. "Home School Heartbeat": The Value of Volunteering

Serving others should be one of our main priorities. This week, HSLDA
President Mike Smith challenges homeschoolers to seek volunteer
opportunities in their communities and share their talents and skills
with others. Whether tutoring a struggling math student or raking a
neighbor's lawn, your child will learn to place the needs of others
ahead of his or her own.
