CHECK’s 2016 Day Under the Dome

capitol dome

Thursday February 25, 2016 – C.H.E.C.K. is inviting all homeschooling families to the 2016 Day Under the Dome at the capitol building in Topeka.  The purpose of the event is to celebrate our homeschooling freedom in Kansas and educate legislators on what homeschooling is in our wonderful state.

For 25 years, C.H.E.C.K. has annually hosted a Day Under the Dome (DUTD) event in Topeka. We are asking you to join us at the capitol on February 25th to provide our state legislators with a positive face from the homeschooling community.

This is a great opportunity to bring your families to meet your district representatives and senators, take a tour of the newly remodeled capitol, hear government officials speak and participate in a few really great programs.

Below is the day’s agenda and offerings to assist you in your plans to attend our DUTD 2016 with your family and friends.
