Legislative Bill 1213: Allowing Single Parents to Homeschool

Sponsors:
Senator Adrian Smith.

Summary:
This bill would have eliminated the "s" from the requirement that "parents" notify the Department of Education. This change would have allowed just one parent to sign the notice of intent without being hassled or prevented from homeschooling by the Department of Education.

Status:

01/18/2006Read first time
01/20/2006Referred to Education Committee
02/14/2006Hearing Scheduled (1:30 p.m., Room 1525)
02/22/2006Indefinitely Postponed

Action Requested:
None at this time.

HSLDA's Position:
Support. This bill would have eliminated the difficulty HSLDA has had with the Department of Education when it comes to single parents exercising their right to homeschool. It would also have reduced the reporting burden for every family by allowing just one parent to sign the notarized form.
