*Do you have patrons wanting to know more about homeschooling? *

The Oregon Home Education Network is the state's first and largest, 
inclusive, nonprofit, volunteer-run organization, dedicated to the 
support of all of Oregon's homeschooling families. OHEN offers the 
following homeschool support services:

** Homeschooling in Oregon: *

A free presentation by a panel of 2-3 experienced homeschoolers. This 
1.5 hour presentation consists of a general overview of homeschooling in 
Oregon and an extensive question & answer period. A handout of 
homeschooling resources will be given to all participants. We are 
currently scheduling Homeschooling in Oregon sessions for winter and 
spring 2012.

* *OHEN Homeschool Resource Guide for $10 (includes shipping) that 
features: *

1. General Information on Homeschooling (4 pages)
2. Legal Information on Homeschooling in Oregon (6 pages)
3. Homeschool Resources (includes websites, books and magazines) (5 pages)
4. Statewide Homeschool Groups (2 pages)

The OHEN Homeschool Resource Guide comes in a 3-ring binder so that it 
is easy to update. If you purchase a binder or binders, you can 
subscribe for free updates.

** E-mail and phone helplines to answer all of the homeschooling 
questions you or your patrons may have:

We are in the process of adding libraries to our lists of local 
homeschool resources: http://www.ohen.org/oregon/links.
If your library has special resources or ongoing programs for 
homeschoolers, we would like to include that information as well.

* *OHEN Homeschool Convention: *

OHEN's 12th Homeschool Convention will be on Saturday, June 30 at Valley 
Catholic High School in Beaverton. If you would like to post flyers, 
please let me know and I will send them to you by mail or e-mail them to 
you to print.


Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to help you 
better serve the homeschoolers in your community.
