    Please email Sally.Javier@ideafamilies.org with your best contact info by Tuesday at 4:00 PM.  (She needs your email address as well as your phone number so she can send you an email or text invite).  Sally will confirm the best method of contact at the time of this listing. 

    You are welcome to visit via conference!  IDEA Tips & A Tour is a special time dedicated just to you with a presentation from our Field Rep who can help you get started homeschooling (in general).

    We’ll have 3 -5 minutes of introductions followed by a 20 minute presentation where you’ll learn a few ways that you will be supported as homeschoolers in the IDEA program.  You’ll be sent a link to materials to download on Tuesday evening.

    We’ll have a Q & A session to address your specific questions. We are working on a virtual tour of the Anchorage office.
