Oregon
The Times, They Are A-Changing
    Under Oregon law, home school families must submit standardized test scores to the superintendent by October 31 of each school year. However, one education service district in Oregon told a Home School Legal Defense Association family that it wanted the test scores submitted in May rather than October. Dewitt Black, the attorney who handles problems for HSLDA members in Oregon, wrote a letter to the superintendent, pointing out that local school districts and educational service districts are without any authority to establish policies or procedures which add to or contradict the requirements of state law. HSLDA encourages our members to contact us immediately if school districts try to establish or enforce any illegal policy.
