Cobb County wants info sheet
In addition to a declaration of intent to utilize a home study program, public school officials in Cobb County are asking parents to complete an Information Sheet that seeks information beyond what is required by state law. According to Georgia's home study statute, the declaration of intent must include a list of the names and ages of the students enrolled in the program, the address where the home study program is located, and a statement of the 12-month period that is to be considered the school year for the program. However, Cobb County's Information Sheet also asks for the home and business telephone numbers of the parents, the date of birth and grade level of each child, and the name of the school last attended.
