We are forming an ad-hoc committee following discussion at the spring board meeting and attendance at the Nebraska Christian Home Educators Association conference. Home School groups have expressed tons of interest in our support and we have learned there is a huge home school student body not being served by our association.
This committee will look at this issue and bring a recommendation to the board, by the summer board meeting. If you have an interest in serving on this committee, please contact Jennifer Bockerman. The committee plans to spend 1/2 day in person and/or via device by June to decide upon a recommendation. Jennifer and Lynette Fast will organize a day/time for meeting when they have received enough interested members.

We are looking for a part time art teacher for our upcoming launch of a Christian Classical school that complements homeschool parents in the Fall of 2016. Veritas Classical School would meet once a week for electives and right now our grades are Kindergarten through 7th/8th grade combo class.
In His providence God brings individuals into our lives who make an indelible imprint on us, and we are most grateful when that occurs. We are pleased to announce Veritas classical schools is looking to hire teachers such as this for the 2016-2017 school year.
Our prayer is for a dynamic educator to come alongside parents to raise their children to be all that God desires. The teacher will be responsible as a godly role model to instruct them in all areas according to our classical methodology and through the clear lens of a biblical worldview. Our teachers will enjoy children while inspiring them to high standards and the pursuit of genuine Christian faith.
If this sounds like you or anyone you might know contact us at email@example.com. We trust that God will bring this type of individual to our campus.
Thanks, Kristi Downing, Veritas Director
