ESLN Webinar: Homeschoolers and the Public Library

February 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EST

According to the US Department of Education, the homeschool population has doubled from one to two million in the last decade. For most school districts in New York State, the number of households providing home instruction has more than doubled since the start of the pandemic (NYSED).

Is your library prepared to assist the growing homeschool community? Deanna McGregor, Homeschool Liaison Librarian at the Liverpool Public Library, will explain NYS’s laws and requirements for homeschool students and why families are choosing this route. Discover ways your library can support the multiple literacy needs of K-12 students following an individualized home instruction plan (IHIP) through your collections, programs, and services.

We invite you to submit a question for the presenter – there will be a place to do that during the registration process. The deadline to submit questions is Feb. 22nd.

This webinar will be recorded and disseminated to all registrants, regardless of attendance. However, to receive a certificate of attendance, registrants must attend live and participate.

This session is sponsored by the Empire State Library Network. If you have any questions, contact Jenn Northup at jnorthup@wnylrc.org.
