Assembly Bill 41: Modifications to Provisions Governing Charter Schools and Homeschooled Children
Sponsors:
Assembly Committee on Education
Summary:

Revises provisions governing charter schools and homeschooled children. Contains language that would require a parent to notify the district if the family stops homeschooling and enrolls their children in another school (public or private) or moves out of state. Also requires charter schools to notify the board of trustees of the school district in which a homeschooled child resides if that child enrolls in the charter school.

HSLDA's Position:
Neutral.
HSLDA does not support the provision requiring parents to notify the school district that they have stopped homeschooling, but the Nevada Homeschool Network has obtained a promise from State Superintendent Keith Rheault that he will request an amendment to remove this requirement when the bill is heard by the education subcommittee.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

12/14/2010     (Assembly)     Prefiled. Referred to Committee on Education. To printer.
12/16/2010     (Assembly)     From printer.
02/07/2011     (Assembly)     Read first time. To Committee.
04/16/2011     (Assembly)     Pursuant to Joint Standing Rule No. 14.3.1, no further action allowed.

Background:

Since the bill draft request (BDR 438) was submitted, the Nevada Homeschool Network has been working with State Superintendent Keith Rheault to remove all language that would adversely affect homeschoolers. For a more extensive explanation of the bill history, see the Nevada Homeschool Network's website. Thanks to NHN's vigilance, Nevada homeschoolers will retain their hard-won freedoms.
