The Story Behind
Building Toward the Future

Homeschool Iowa President Joe Bailey shares Building Toward the Future.

Let's hear from HI President, Joe Bailey:

On the final day in October this year, what my wife and I had been dreaming about, praying about, and planning for the past decade finally happened. The contractors broke ground, and the house of our dreams started to take shape.

A parallel event happened with Homeschool Iowa just one month earlier. In mid-September, what Homeschool Iowa Board Members had been dreaming about, praying about, and planning for over a decade finally happened.

A Key in Building Toward the Future

Just as my wife, Elizabeth, and I have employed experienced contractors to help us build our house, Homeschool Iowa has secured a skillful Executive Director, Aaron Neely.

Your dedicated giving
allowed us to lay the financial foundation,
and God supplied a talented homeschool father to fill the role.

Other state homeschool organization leaders have told us that hiring an Executive Director was the top factor in improving their operations.

Aaron is already demonstrating his ability to provide targeted focus and direction for our amazing volunteer team.

He also supplies a unifying and efficient management approach to our Homeschool Iowa efforts. We're thrilled with the results!

Vital in Building Toward the Future

Bill and our Homeschool Iowa Advocacy Team have gained key wins for Iowa homeschooling families.

Here are just a few of their many positive efforts:

  • protection for Independent Private Instruction (IPI),
  • expansion of parent-taught driver education,
  • clean-up of the Private Instruction section of the Iowa Code,
  • response to the updated, but error-filled CPI Form A, and
  • access for homeschoolers to tuition and textbook tax credits.

How You Can Help Now

You can partner with us in building toward the future in the coming year,

• our Lobbyist,
• our Executive Director, and 
• the new initiatives that he is helping us plan.

Aaron is already working on improving Homeschool Iowa’s messaging and increasing our reach to homeschoolers across the state.

He is also initiating our partnership with a new program to gather and publish homeschool student test score research designed to demonstrate the continued success of home education to our legislators and the public.

In addition, Aaron is seeking to improve our support for and connection with support groups and co-ops and to provide simple ways for them to participate in our legislative efforts.

With additional salaried staff and all these new initiatives,
our expenses are on track
