This is open to all homeschoolers in the state of Nevada and is meant to be an effective means of communication between all diverse groups. Legislatively, we need to work together as a common group, towards united goals. This is a safe forum to gather, meet, and communicate.

AB19 out of committee

AB19 was PASSED and voted out of committee yesterday.  It will be heard this morning and voted on by all the assembly members.

Please contact YOUR assembly members ASAP and ask them to vote NO on AB19. You can find your assembly rep HERE.

You can say something simple like, “AB19 was passed out of the Assembly Committee on Education on April 8, 2021, in spite of overwhelming opposition to the inclusion of homeschoolers in this bill.  Please correct this by voting NO on AB19. Homeschoolers across the state are relying on you to legislate for them.”

AB19 workshop scheduled TODAY 4/8

AB19 is being voted on today at 1pm. You may remember, this is the bill the Dept of Ed brought forth and used as a stance that they are over homeschoolers. The assembly committee bought in! Meanwhile, this same thing was tried over on the senate side, and THEY listened and struck out the homeschool section.

Action Alert- call the assembly ed committee, email them TODAY and tell them to strike out section one in AB19 before they vote on it.

Example Email:

I am a homeschooling parent and am opposed to any changes to the homeschooling laws. AB19 seeks to change both homeschool and public school laws, with no understanding or accommodation of the differences between the two. Further, no homeschoolers were consulted prior to this proposed change. The Nevada homeschool community does NOT want the verbiage changed and would like to be removed from this bill all together. Please leave our laws alone.

Urgent Action Needed on SB194

March 17, 2021

 

NV Homeschoolers- There is now a second bill threatening the constitutional rights of parents choosing to homeschool their children separate from public school law.   For the most current information see NHN’s SB194 information page.  

 

SB194 Section 6 needs to be struck!  SB194, as with AB19, proposes to add content to the core academic subjects, INCLUDING TO HOMESCHOOLERS!  This is, again, with no input from homeschoolers and usurps our parental rights. They are really trying hard to conform homeschoolers to public school standards.

 

Please do the following NOW! The bill will be heard on FRIDAY!
Use the opinion poll https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/81st2021/

Against SB194 – Section 6 seeks to  “homogenized” homeschoolers  to public school statutes. No thanks

Homeschooling in NV Under Legal Attack – AGAIN!

The Nevada legislature kicked off the 2021 session with a fresh attack on your right to teach your children as you see fit.

Please act now – it only takes just a few minutes to do your part to protect your rights.
