Home schoolers say "no" to quarterly reports
On November 21, 2001, Dr. Kenneth J. Grew, superintendent of Foster-Gloucester Public Schools, sent letters to the home school families in his district asking them to forward attendance reports along with the grades for their students on a quarterly basis. Five Home School Legal Defense Association member families contacted us and requested assistance.
Attorney Scott Woodruff promptly informed Dr. Grew that the families would comply with the year-end assessment required under a previous ruling by the commissioner of education, but they would stand firm in the position that quarterly reports of attendance and/or progress are not mandated.
Dr. Grew replied to HSLDA in a letter dated December 19, 2001, stating that "the decision of the home school families not to process progress reports and attendance records on a quarterly basis is acceptable."
We thank God for this speedy and favorable response.
