I know homeschool co-ops can, but can individual homeschools?

our accountability group here in sc takes them and uses the money toward helping out with field trip fees. i don't know what the limit is, but i'm pretty sure there is one .(like number of people/students in your group/homeschool)

They told me that individual homeschools are not able to participate. They also told me that homeschool groups can't participate, either, so maybe I got the wrong info...

Individuals can not earn at this time with them. Under their FAQ they have this
Is my school currently enrolled in Box Tops for Education?

Over 90,000 K-8 schools are enrolled in the Box Tops program. To find out if your school participates, click the Join Us link on the home page.

The Box Tops for Education program is available to any accredited public, private or parochial school, for grades K-8, in the United States that is organized and primarily operated for educational purposes; U.S. military schools, K-8, worldwide; and accredited home school associations, K-8, in the United Sates that are organized and operated primarily for educational purposes and have 15 or more students.

I also know HS families that collect them and then sell them on ebay or craigslist for close to what they would get if they could send them in.

Our co-op collects them and sends them to our state organization. They take % and then cut as a check for the remainder.
