North Star Independent Homeschoolers Membership Request
The qualifications for membership in this organization are: independently homeschool at least one child and reside within the state of Alaska. Membership to the organization is not fee-based. We are just a group of independent families supporting each other and reaching out to other independent families.
NSIH is supporting Independent Homeschoolers in Fairbanks and surrounding communities who choose to homeschool in accordance with Alaska homeschooling law instead of enrolling their children in public correspondence schools. The goal of this group is to address and support the unique needs of those families choosing to educate their children in a parent-led and family funded fashion as indicated by Alaska’s homeschooling law.
