In California, there are several ways that parents educate their children at home: through an existing private school, through a public charter or independent study program, and in many instances by opening their own private home-based school and filing the Private School Affidavit (PSA) with the California Department of Education (CDE).  This form can be filled out after the 15th.

Establishing an inclusive organization starts with establishing a diverse and inclusive board. Our current board of directors is composed of individuals with a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources . We value differing voices that play important roles in accomplishing the organization’s mission and increasing understanding of our membership and community needs.  If you feel your voice is missing from the conversation please apply today
