School official attempts to impose testing

At the conclusion of the 2002-2003 school year, an elementary school principal in the Bridgeport School District attempted to require state testing of a student receiving home instruction. According to the principal, this student was required to take the Connecticut Mastery Exam even though she was not enrolled as a public school student.

Home School Legal Defense Association responded on behalf of our member family and explained to the principal that the family was conducting their home instruction program in compliance with the procedures adopted by the state board of education. These procedures do not require any state testing of students receiving home instruction. After receiving this information, the school official ceased further attempts to require the state testing.
