Senate File 44: Parental Responsibilities
Sponsors:
Senator Case and Representative McOmie
Summary:

Senate File 44 would raise the pentalty for failing to comply to Wyoming's compuslory attendance law.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.

Senate File 44 is excessive in imposing high fines of up to $1,000 and possible jail time of 10 days for parents who fail, neglect, or refuse to comply with Wyoming's compulsory school attendance laws for their children. This bill is harmful to homeschooling families who may find themselves targeted, and it is unnecessary as Wyoming's current law regarding compulsory attendance is satisfactory.

Action Requested:
None at this time

Your help is needed today! Contact your senators asking them to vote no on SF 44 when it is introduced in the Senate.

Your message could read: “Senate File 0044 may target homeschooling families by imposing excessive fines on parents who don’t comply with compulsory attendance law. Vote no on sending SF 44 to committee.”
