Box Tops for Education Homeschool Eligibility

Box Tops for Education Homeschool Eligibility

What does Box Tops for Education mean by "accredited home school associations"? When I called and asked about our group signing up ans was told about the association that was the response. When I ask what they meant by that, they lady repeated the answer and asked if our group was part of a accredited home school association. So if my answer is I don't know or know can you tell me What associations there are or how to find one. She just repeated the accredited.....statement and I realized I was not going to get anywhere with this. Can anyone who has helped their group join give me any tips?

Here is the wording from Box Tops for Education's official rules under their Eligibility requirement:

"The Box Tops for Education® program is open to any accredited public, private or parochial school, containing any class with students from Kindergarten to 8th grade, in the United States and Puerto Rico..."

"It is also available to home school associations, containing any class with students from Kindergarten to 8th grade, in the United States organized and operated primarily for educational purposes and have 15 or more students."

The word accredited is used for public, private and parochial schools not for homeschool associations. I believe General Mills/Box Tops realizes that most homeschool groups are not accredited.

Other groups have had the same response. Call back again. You will probably get another customer service rep. If you have a legally organized group, then you should be all set.

Your group will need to have a bank account - Box Tops will make the check payable to your group.
