Home Oriented Unique Schooling Experience
Illinois HOUSE is a statewide network of support groups for people involved in homeschooling. We provide email and phone support about issues related to Illinois homeschooling. Common questions include how to withdraw a child from public school, what the school district needs from homeschooling families and how to deal with officials who ask for more than they're entitled to receive. We have member groups throughout the Chicago suburban area and more spread across the state.
HOUSE groups are nonsectarian (not religious based) and inclusive for
all. That means that you will find people of all different lifestyles,
educational styles, religious beliefs and unbeliefs. This mix of folks
can be stimulating for some, and might not be for others. If you like
learning about how all different kinds of people think, live and
homeschool, a HOUSE group could be for you. Membership in HOUSE offers a
certain amount of assurance to homeschoolers regarding legal issues.
HOUSE holds a position on the board of the Ad Hoc Committee for
Illinois Homeschool Legal and Legislative Matters, a group that very
carefully monitors legal and legislative activity that can potentially
have an effect on homeschools. Consulting and working together with
other organizations on Ad Hoc, HOUSE is able to supply reliable and
timely information to its members regarding legal issues.
