Many people are fearful of the DNPE, but there is nothing to fear. DNPE’s motto is: We make true school choice possible by serving and supporting the non-public school community. Another way they serve and support is by answering questions about homeschool law and administrative policy. In fact, some days they answer 300 questions! You probably have some questions yourself. With her experience as the past director, Diane Allen will discuss the legal requirements and policy for homeschools and 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.
