Have you noticed the exciting new changes for home school groups on the THSC website this year?
We listened to you and went to work to better meet the needs of home school group leaders:
- In January, we updated our search tool so families and groups can enter a zip code to easily find groups on our list.
- In March, we updated our leader resources by placing them on one page, exclusively for affiliated home school groups, and issued passwords to groups that have submitted their annual updates. Now groups can access all of the group benefits, even on nights and weekends!
- In April, we officially launched the Affiliate Home School Group Program.
- In May, we added two appealing new benefits to our already bountiful list of advantages!
When the Affiliate Home School Group Program was launched in April, all groups already listed on the THSC website remained listed, but should update their information with our Application to register/update.
If your group has already updated your information with THSC in 2016, thank you!
THSC strives to keep your listing current and updated. If your group has not yet done this, please ensure your group update is completed by October 31, 2016, in order to remain affiliated with THSC. Updates can be submitted anytime you have changes; otherwise, THSC requires groups to update annually. Your Leader Resources password will be emailed once your update is processed.
That’s it! It’s easy to remain affiliated with THSC, and THSC is committed to supporting group leaders so that you can serve Texas home school families confidently!
