Senate Bill 32: Requires Homeschool Families to be Investigated Under Certain Circumstances
Sponsors:
Senators Dinniman, Ferlo, Washington, Stack, Teplitz, Rafferty, Erickson, Yudichak, Kasunic, Fontana, Tartaglione, Williams, Farnese, Waugh, Browne, Ward, Boscola, Hughes, Baker, and Costa
Summary:

According to the primary sponsor of this bill, it would require a school district to notify CPS when a child is enrolled in a home education program. The county agency would then be required to conduct a “safety and risk assessment” of the family. While the actual language of the bill appears to trigger the assessment if a child in the home has been the subject of a founded or indicated report and the parent has been the subject of a report within the last 18 months, this bill is still unacceptable. There is no connection between homeschooling and child abuse.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

Referred to committee. See "Bill History" link below.
