Regional Representatives

The mission of IAHE is to promote home education in the state of Indiana by influencing the legislature, providing support to home educators, and promoting home education. Our goal is to use guiding principles to support the strategic plan of the Board to accomplish our agenda.  We set forth the following guiding principles to promote value added decision making:

  • Christ Centered
  • Gospel Centered
  • Matthew 18
  • Service
  • Humility
  • Grace Based
  • Team led and driven
  • Measurable results-What are the results of our efforts?
  • Outward focus-reaching out to the community we serve.

IAHE is a ministry that relies heavily on volunteers with a servant’s heart to serve the mission of IAHE and further homeschooling in the state of Indiana.  In order to aid our volunteers, IAHE has created positions with definable and attainable objectives.   Each area of responsibility will be defined using Key Result Areas (KRA) and Key Performance Indicators (KPI). KRAs are certain responsibilities that will be his/her key result areas. Example – Convention coordinators would have KRAs associated with contracts, logistics and vendors.

Identifying KRAs helps individuals:

  • Clarify their roles
  • Align their roles to IAHE’s strategic plan
  • Focus on results rather than activities
  • Communicate their role’s purposes to others
  • Set goals and objectives
  • Prioritize their activities
  • Make value-added decisions

Key Performance Indicators are performance targets set by IAHE for various positions as a way of measuring KRAs to ensure the strategic plan is met. Example – KPI for the Convention Coordinator would include: gross revenue, caliber of speakers, market and outreach.  These are all quantitative results.
