This post is part of a series titled, “Homeschool Q&A.” The series features questions we’ve received from parents on a variety of topics–and the answers!
Q. Are you planning to have Homeschool Day at the Capitol again next year? If so, what are the dates?
A. Yes, we are making plans for two Homeschool Day at the Capitol events in 2012. The tentative dates are Wednesday, February 22, and Thursday, April 26.
At the Legislative Day at the Capitol on February 22, you will be able to personally visit your legislators at their capitol offices, listen to bills being debated in committees, and watch from the gallery above the House or Senate Chamber as legislators cast their votes for or against proposed legislation.
The Capitol Classroom Day at the Capitol (tentatively scheduled for April 26) will be held after the General Assembly session has adjourned. Parents and students will be able to participate in the “Capitol Classroom” and sit at the desk of a senator or delegate, debate a mock homeschool bill, and vote!
Both Homeschool Day at the Capitol events will include presentations on “How a Bill Becomes a Law” and guided tours of our historic Capitol and the Governor’s Mansion. Watch for more information about the schedule, other events during the afternoon, and registration information!
I hope you can join us!
P.S. HEAV members will have an early-bird registration opportunity — watch for upcoming details!
