HSLDA social services contact policy

We desire to assist and advise our members in every contact with a social worker and/or police officer in investigations resulting from allegations of abuse or neglect. If homeschooling is an issue, we will represent our member families until the issue is resolved. On Fourth Amendment unreasonable search and seizure issues, HSLDA will assist and advise our members whenever the privacy of their home is violated by forced or coerced entry for the purpose of an unsubstantiated investigation. HSLDA membership benefits do not extend to court actions resulting from non-homeschooling matters. However, in circumstances where there is a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment, HSLDA may, as we have done in the past, choose to take the case in an effort to establish legal precedent.


A plethora of forms

As an added benefit to our members, HSLDA has posted a number of sample forms on our website, including letters for withdrawing from public school, forms for submitting required notices of intent to homeschool, and memos describing the legal issues involved in homeschooling. To see the forms for your state, go to the homeschooling page on our website at http://members.hslda.org/state and select your state. By the creation of these forms, HSLDA did not intend to burden its members with more paperwork. Rather, the forms are designed for our members' convenience and to protect them from inadvertently giving more information than their state's law requires. Members are free to prepare their own documents to comply with the law.
