An ID card for homeschool students

When we think about issuing IDs to students, rarely do we consider those students who don't report to campus at all. Homeschool students require access to the same academic resources that their on-campus peers enjoy, but verifying their academic standing can be a challenge without the proper credential.

Now, a new initiative from and IDCreator is hoping to put free ID Cards into the hands of homeschool students in time for the 2015-2016 school year, enabling them to gain access to valuable academic resources.

The idea behind the initiative is that the average homeschool student has less access to school-related resources that would otherwise be found in a typical on-campus library or classroom., an online community for homeschooling parents and students, and have partnered to provide free ID cards -- which carry an estimated value of $10 -- to homeschool students to help them access local school resources.

The initiative will enable students to detail their homeschooling education, name, age and educational level in order to identify themselves to institutions like high schools and public libraries, as well as gain access to their academic resources. The partnership allows anyone to obtain the ID card by first visiting the Homeschool website offer page.

According to a spokesperson for, designing cards is only half the story, with the more important half being what the cards will be used for. The company says the key is providing homeschool students the ability to make ID cards that they can then use to access local school resources, borrow books and further their learning.
