House Bill 665: An Act Regarding Required Information for Home Study Programs

Authors:
Representatives Tom Rice, Brooks Coleman, and Howard Maxwell

Summary:
This is a driver’s license bill. Among other things, it would require that the declaration of intent to conduct a home study program state the child’s date of birth instead of the child’s age as is now required. This additional information raises privacy concerns. Having a child’s name and birth date would enable the state to obtain information about the child unrelated to homeschooling. There is no reason for all homeschoolers to be required to provide this information.

Status:

4/4/2008 Bill died when the Assembly adjourned Sine Die
