Senate Bill 922: Requires Homeschool Students to Enroll in Public School and Allows for Sports Participation
Sponsors:
Senators Tokuda, Chun Oakland, Gabbard, Ruderman, and Slom
Summary:

Senate Bill 922 would require all homeschool students to enroll in the local public school. Their enrollment would then be used to calculate the funds received by the public school. SB 922 would also allow homeschool students who meet certain eligibility requirements to participate in extracurricular activities at the local public school.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.

HSLDA opposes any additional regulations on homeschooling. Senate Bill 922 would require homeschool students to be enrolled in the local public school which would effectively decrease the freedoms of homeschooling families.
