Over the past two decades, homeschoolers around Arizona have gathered at the State Capitol many times shortly after a new legislative session has convened for Homeschool Day at the Capitol.  The purpose has been to allow the families an opportunity to meet their legislators, to get a tour of the facilities, and to be part of the larger homeschool movement in Arizona.

This year’s event has some wonderful new features and will be highlighted with an appearance by governor Jan Brewer as she issues a proclamation declaring this week to be Arizona Homeschool Week.
What: Homeschool Day at the Capitol!

When: Tuesday, March 2, 2010 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM

Where:
AZ State Capital
1700 W Washington St
Phoenix, AZ 85007

The big day is almost here! We have had an overwhelming response for Homeschool Day at the Capitol and we are expecting approximately 1,200 people to attend this event.

PARKING:
The parking map is available through the webpage above. One option is the parking garage behind the Health Services building on Washington Ave. It is easily visible from Washington St. and 17th Ave. Take a right at 18th Ave. and drive one very short block to Monroe St. The entrance is right there. It is a 4 story parking garage, in a brown/tan color. The walk back to the Senate Lawn from there would be at most 8 minutes or so. Another option is the parking lot on the west side of the Governor?s tower. The parking map shows all available parking in the area.

GALLERIES: There is room in the House or Senate galleries for up to 150 people if anyone wants to sit in and watch the floor action that day.

VIDEOGRAPHERS: We have a rare and special opportunity for homeschoolers to gather at the Capitol with the Governor addressing the crowd and issuing a Homeschool Week Proclamation. We are looking for several videography buffs who would be interested in taking video with a tripod during the event ? families enjoying the day, speakers, and performances, etc. If you are interested in this, please let us know.

CHECK IN: Check in will open at 9:30 AM. Look for the white canopy at the front corner of the east lawn in front of the Senate building. There will be multiple lines to speed up the check-in process.

SCHEDULE:
