Homeschool Support and Advocacy
We support homeschooling families
- Monthly Introduction to Homeschooling workshops for new and prospective homeschoolers.
- Answers to your questions about letters of intent, attendance requirements, progress reports, mid-year withdrawals, and working with your school district.
- A thriving forum to discuss learning at home, curriculum questions, unschooling and life as a homeschooling family.
The ENRICHri Advocacy Team
- Gathers and disseminates information about homeschooling in Rhode Island.
- Works to promote and protect homeschool interests in Rhode Island.
- Reviews all district school committee agendas and minutes and will alert district homeschoolers if we have any policy concerns.
- Attends school committee meetings when necessary to support homeschool freedoms.
- Watches for legislation that could affect homeschoolers in our state and shares that information with homeschoolers as needed. Each year as the General Assembly introduces bills the Advocacy Team monitors the progress of dozens of those bills. We watch for and respond to legislation that could affect homeschooling families on a state and district level.
- Are current or former homeschoolers themselves with many years of experience.
Note: The ENRICHri Advocacy Team does not currently include a lawyer. Our advice is based on historical evidence and our long-term experience working with homeschoolers, school committees and law makers. Nothing on this website is intended as legal advice. For legal matters, contact a competent attorney.
We offer multiple cooperative programs, at campuses around the state. These programs are led and taught by parent volunteers and kids learn while making new friends.
Bi-weekly, child-led and multi-aged learning in the “wild.”
Learn on Location Experiences
We go into the world to explore: museums, historic sites, parks, civic locations, theatre and musical performances, playground meetups, nature sanctuaries and much more. We offer a variety of outings and field trips, including free or low cost outings every month.
We gather together for beach days, ice cream socials, dances, art shows, a science fair, tween and teen outings and parents’ nights out.
We hope you join us.
