House Bill 3394: Homeschool Information to be Provided by Public Schools

Author:
Representatives Toole, Limehouse, Altman, Herbkersman, Ceips, Mahaffey, and Vaughn

Summary:
This bill would have required school districts to provide parents, upon request, information about homeschooling. Among other things, this would include the standards the homeschool program must meet to be approved by the school district. We were concerned that school districts would interpret this law in ways that would grant them additional authority to regulate homeschools. Also, we don’t believe parents currently have difficulty obtaining information about homeschooling.

Status:

01/26/2005Introduced and referred to Committee on Education and Public Works
6/15/2006 Bill died when the Legislature adjourned.

HSLDA's Position:
HSLDA opposed this bill.

Action Requested:
None at this time.
