Hawaii
Progress report deadline

Each year home schooling families in Hawaii are notified by public school officials that they must submit their annual progress reports by the last school day of May. Home School Legal Defense Association anticipates that such will be the case during the 2001-2002 school year.

While the Hawaii Administrative Rules governing home schools require that parents submit to the principal an annual report of a child's progress, there is no date specified in the rules for the submission of the annual report. Parents are free to establish the commencement date and ending date of each school year independent of the school year established for public schools.

In the past, HSLDA has simply advised public school officials that state law does not require the submission of the annual report on the date designated by the public school officials. School officials receiving correspondence from HSLDA on this issue have made no further attempts to enforce the unauthorized deadline. — Dewitt T. Black
