F.P.E.A.

The fee is $30 for those who join through an FPEA-recognized group, and $40 for individual memberships.

Membership Form: https://fpea.com/forms/fpea-membership-form

The FPEA unites and connects more homeschoolers in Florida than any other organization, equipping you on your homeschooling journey and serving as your voice in protecting your legal right to home-educate in the Sunshine State. Consider these FPEA member benefits:

Connection to Experts —The FPEA delivers personal access to District Directors. Just a call or a click away, these experienced homeschoolers answer questions, offer encouragement, communicate timely information and identify trends. Your FPEA District Directors also work with you in dealing with local school officials, making sure homeschool laws are understood and followed. The FPEA Guide to Homeschooling in Florida (free access for members) keeps 100-plus pages of expert advice at your fingertips. Also, the members-only Connect magazine (about to replace the Almanac newsletter) is packed with helpful articles.

Protection of Your Rights —We help safeguard your legal right to homeschool by keeping its finger on the pulse of what’s happening in Tallahassee and Washington. The FPEA partners with the Home Education Foundation (a full-time lobbyist) and the Home School Legal Defense Association. The annual FPEA Day at the Capitol shows legislators that homeschoolers have a united voice. The FPEA also organizes and promotes a statewide network of local homeschool support groups, with the FPEA website being a one-stop shop for information on groups in your area and how to connect with them. In addition, the annual FPEA Florida Homeschool Convention unites thousands of homeschoolers statewide.

Discounts and Opportunities —FPEA members receive a deep discount on Convention registration (and a free advance copy of the Convention program), discounts on educational merchandise from participating vendors, and savings on HSLDA membership. The FPEA enables high school seniors to experience the joy of wearing a cap and gown at the FPEA Statewide Graduation Ceremony. Also, the FPEA Homeschool Foundation provides opportunities for college scholarships.

The benefits of FPEA membership far exceed the still-low annual fee.


Sincerely,
FPEA Board of Directors

Who is the FPEA

The FPEA serves thousands of homeschooling families in Florida, delivering a wealth of support, guidance and information to both new and longtime home educators. The "FPEA Experience" involves a banding together of homeschoolers to accomplish the task of developing academic and personal excellence by sharing resources, creating connections, enhancing relationships and breaking down barriers. Acknowledging there is no one "right" way to educate, the FPEA acts as an ambassador and champion, serving and protecting the rights and choices of all homeschoolers.

MISSION STATEMENT:


The Florida Parent-Educators Association exists solely to serve homeschooling families in Florida. It executes that mission through support for the legal right to homeschool, local school board education and interaction, support group networking, a state convention, local conferences and events, informative communications, and individual encouragement, all in accordance with Judeo-Christian principles.

FPEA eNewsletter March 2016

Note from Chairman, Convention Scholarship, and more!

Spring has Sprung!!!

The newness of Spring always makes me feel refreshed! I so enjoy seeing the new blooms and new life all around us, not to mention the vibrant colors and the hint of summer just around the corner. We are so blessed to enjoy a magnificent world around us that reminds us that new is good and refreshment is needed!

New and refreshing are the perfect terms to describe FPEA right now! We are working on all of the plans for the 2016 FPEA Homeschool Convention, and I must say that we are excited about new opportunities for our families to renew and refresh this year. You will want to keep an eye out for your convention program that will have all the details about new activities and, of course, information on all of the familiar offerings that you have come to love and appreciate at our state convention.

Speaking of renewal….FPEA is excited to be able to offer a brand new opportunity for Certified teachers and evaluators to earn Continuing Education Units toward renewing your teacher certification! FPEA is the first homeschool convention in the nation to partner with ACTS and offer the opportunity for you to receive valuable credit for the valuable knowledge you earn at an FPEA workshop. We are so excited to have made this connection and hope that you will take advantage of it this year!

We hope to see you in May! But first, you have to be sure to register for convention and secure your place at the beautiful Gaylord Palms! There is no better place in the nation to renew and refresh as your prepare for the upcoming school year!

If you have already registered, make sure to share the excitement with every other homeschool family that you know! We can’t wait to see you :)

Embracing it all!

FPEA Town Hall --NEW THIS YEAR!!

Calling all PATRIOTS! This is a defining year in our nation and in our association. We feel it is an exciting time—a time for celebration and action.

The Thursday night Town Hall is a new addition to the FPEA Convention schedule. This will be a ceremony of patriotism and liberty.

Thursday, 8PM

Special Guest Speaker: Rick Green, Wallbuilders          

Is the American Experiment of Liberty Coming to an End?

America has for two centuries been the city on a hill, a beacon of liberty for the world. But in just a few short years, She has lost her moral authority and her economic dominance, while the liberties that made Her great have been eroded by unconstitutional overreaches of government power.

Can America be restored or is She too far gone? Rather than a doomsday approach, Rick Green answers this question with historical perspective



Annie Moses Band in Concert

Friday, May 27

The Annie Moses Band’s new album and show,

American Rhapsody, is a panoramic exploration of America and her music. Featuring favorites from Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Stephen Foster, and other American originals, the show is a melting pot of

Americana, folk, and classical. It’s a beautiful and transporting concert experience, giving

audiences a taste of the American musical kaleidoscope.
