|During the COVID-19 Crisis, there have been increased questions regarding the home school process in Arkansas. Even though we are working from alternate locations, we are dedicated to serving parents. The DESE Home School Office is excited to announce Home School Helpdesk – an interactive, digital opportunity for prospective and current home school parents. Starting Monday, March 30 we will host Digital Office Hours at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. A program advisor from our office will be available over a video chat session to discuss the homeschooling process in Arkansas and answer questions. Click here to join us!|
