While there is no denying that considerable volunteer effort is offered to present the Christian Homeschool Conference of South Dakota (CHCSD), it is humbling and amazing to see the magnification and direction of our gracious Father through His Son in the pieces falling together and the work being completed. We, the CHCSD Committee, firmly believe that this blessing is granted in order to encourage, inspire, and invigorate the Christian homeschooling community. We pray that this will be the case for your family with this year's conference.

The Education Alliance of Christian Homeschoolers in South Dakota (TEACHSD), the organization formerly known as SECHE, was founded in 2002 by like-minded home educators who desired a group where their belief and acknowledgement of God was an integral part of the organization. Originally formed to support home educating families through educational and social activities, the organization is continually adapting to the needs of the members it serves.

TEACHSD is dedicated to the cultivation, protection and promotion of Christian homeschooling and the homeschool community in the state of South Dakota. These goals are pursued by:

  • Legislative and policy work of the Families for Alternative Instruction Rights in South Dakota (http://www.fairsd.org) Committee to advance, protect and secure homeschooling rights
  • Planning and execution efforts of the Christian Homeschool Conference of South Dakota (http://www.chcsd.org) Committee who provide the annual state conference to inspire and encourage homeschooling families
  • Coordinating communication between independent local homeschool support and activity groups and homeschool families
  • Working to educate the community and public of the importance of parent-directed education and the freedoms required to allow it to flourish
  • TEACHSD is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation with Board, Committee and membership representation from across the state and its members receive discounted HSLDA memberships.

    Special thanks is extended to the CHCSD Committee and TEACHSD Board. The time and work they contribute to both the conference and management of TEACHSD is appreciated.

    Conference Committee volunteer families: Brunick, Brunick-Spieker, Olmstead, Rusanowski and Smith.

    We also want to thank the Sioux Falls Convention Center for the use of their wonderful facility.
