School PO Orders

Placing a PO Order with Gather 'Round:

PO orders are Purchase Orders sent from Gather 'Round to homeschool support schools that have a vendor agreement with us. They are for homeschoolers in Canada who are enrolled in a DL school or US support schools that pay for their families orders. These orders are paid for by your support school and fulfilled by Gather 'Round Homeschool.
