Many people fear the DNPE, but there is nothing to fear. Our motto is,“We make true school choice possible by serving and supporting the non-public school community.” We exist to make homeschooling possible! We answer questions about homeschool law and administrative policy. Some days we answer 300 hundred questions! You probably have some questions yourself. Rather than be caller number 301come listen and learn in person! Director Diane Allen and other staff will discuss the basic legal requirements and policy for homeschools, answer common (and not so common) questions, while demystifying the department and alleviating your concerns.

Diane Allen began her educator journey as a classroom science teacher. After transitioning to a stay-at-home mom, she homeschooled her 3 children to graduation over a span of 21 years while also serving the homeschool community through co-ops, being a testing provider and an online teacher. She was blessed with the opportunity to serve as the NC DNPE director from 2016-2018 and currently works with a University Model School as director of program support. She and her husband love small town living and building relationships with their 4 grandchildren.
