Updates on Virgina’s General Assembly

HEAV works to promote and protect homeschool interests in the Virginia General Assembly. Each year the General Assembly introduces as many as 3,000 bills; HEAV monitors the progress of dozens of those bills. We introduce legislation to advance homeschool freedoms, and watch for and respond to legislation that could affect homeschooling families. HEAV’s full-time lobbyist garners support from legislators on both sides of the aisle.
HEAV’s Position: HEAV has always supported—and will continue to support—the rights of parents to make decisions concerning their children. HEAV does not take a position on vaccines. However, HEAV does believe it is parents, not the government, who should make vaccine decisions for their family.
