An important way that APHEA promotes home education is through political involvement. We seek to foster and protect a climate of non-interference for home education in Alaska by direct involvement in the political process. This is accomplished by providing information on issues and candidates and by acting as a liaison between home education and the Alaska legislature. We keep our members informed through alerts concerning relevant legislation and Department of Education activities.
It is important to understand the homeschooling law that we have in Alaska. Please see our Alaska Homeschool Law page for the specific details and a downloadable PDF.
We also have Legislative Alerts with information on legislation that would affect homeschoolers. We provide updates as new developments take place or new legislation is introduced.
As both a citizen and a homeschooler, it’s important to know your senator and representative. You can visit our Contact Information page for more details and the list of legislators on the House and Senate Education committees.
