The 2012 Florida legislative session begins today, Tuesday, January 10, 2012. As busy homeschool parents most of us don’t have the time or resources to stay on top of all of the action in Tallahassee, but don’t worry, FPEA’s Legislative Committee is prepared to keep you informed of any and all issues that could potentially impact homeschooling in Florida.
Our Committee members will be monitoring and reporting on activity within the Florida legislative session that pertains to homeschool families across the state. We will use the FPEA Blog, Facebook page and Twitter to make announcements, publish updates and, if necessary, alert you to any time sensitive actions that might be needed to help share our opinions with state representatives.
To help kick-off the legislative session the FPEA Board of Directors will be meeting with homeschool families this Thursday for FPEA Day at the Capitol. This annual event helps to demonstrate our homeschool community’s interest and involvement in the issues effecting Florida families. If your family would like to join the activities there is still time to RSVP (Call 1-877-ASK-FPEA or Email firstname.lastname@example.org). If you can’t make it to Tallahassee you can still feel like you are participating in this important day by following as we provide real-time updates via Facebook and Twitter.
