Why should homeschooling parents join Kentucky Home Education Association? Local homeschool support groups are important, and we encourage you to be a part of your local support group. KHEA, as a statewide organization, fosters communication between various segments of the homeschooling community and provides a vehicle for homeschooling families to have their voices heard by the legislature, the professional educational establishment and any other interested parties. Join KHEA because:
KHEA has two kinds of memberships. Choose the one that works best for you and download the appropriate application from the Related Documents section to mail in with your check.
1. Individual membership
Membership is $15 per year per family. You will receive the KHEA Newsletter and access to members of the KHEA Board. As always, you receive the satisfaction of knowing that your support will build a better “legal climate” for home schooling in your state and your hometown. You will receive a KHEA membership card, and can use our HSLDA discount number for a $20.00 discount on HSLDA membership.
If you are an individual and do not belong to a local support group, you should consider finding 3 other home school families and start meeting as a support group. Your total fee for the 4 families would be $40 under option 2 (see below) as an affiliated support group member. This is $15 less than the four families would owe in dues if they all joined individually.
2. Support group membership
Affiliated support groups pay $25 per year plus $5 per member family. Not everyone in the support group has to be included in the KHEA membership. It's up to each indivdual support group. Each support group will receive an email copy of the KHEA Newsletter which they will be responsible to distribute to their KHEA member families. We will list your support group on our website. If we are contacted by someone who lives in your area, we will refer them to your support group. Because you are a KHEA member support group, we will be glad to send a KHEA Board Member to your group for advice or as a speaker when you request this. Your members will receive a KHEA membership card and will be able to use our HSLDA discount number for a $20.00 discount on HSLDA membership. Of course, we will continue to lobby in Frankfort on your behalf. We also will provide a Winter Support Group Leaders Conference to train and encourage your leaders. Your support group leaders will be able to attend at little or no cost to them.
