Warnings Would Be Nice!
Admittedly, the two headlines arent related, but we found the juxtaposition of the title and subtitle humorous...

New Form Asks for Zoning Information
The Westerville School District recently sent out a newly revised form to local home schoolers. The
form seemed normal, and was prominently labeled optional. However, on the bottom of the second page, home schooled families were told If [your] address is within the City of Westerville, you must have approval by the Zoning Commission.
Needless to say, zoning laws do not affect home schooling families differently than anyone else. Parents have the constitutional right to teach their children in their own homes no matter where they live, and they do not need to receive approval from zoning boards in order to do so.
On behalf of our member families, HSLDA wrote the Westerville School District, pointing these facts out and requesting that they revise their form to conform to state law regarding home schooling. Darren A. Jones
