Salem withdraws test demand

In June of 2004, the Howard family in the City of Salem filed to teach their children under Virginia's certified tutor statute.* Mrs. Howard has a Virginia teaching license.

At the end of the school year, the Director of Student Services told Mrs. Howard that she would need to send her children's standardized test scores to the school district.

Mrs. Howard called Home School Legal Defense Association for assistance. We immediately wrote to the Director of Student Services and explained that families under the certified tutor option are not required to submit standardized test scores.

Acknowledging that we were correct, the director assured us he would not ask the Howards for test scores again.
