Superintendent Refuses to Correct Form
It’s not the first time. Home School Legal Defense Association has warned the superintendent of the Logan County Public School District several times in the past that he was going beyond the law’s requirements by sending form letters to local homeschoolers, asking them to fill out the district’s form, and requesting unnecessary information, such as child’s grade and participation in public school activities. But, in fall 2008, he did it again.
As soon as HSLDA member families brought the superintendent’s latest form letter to the attention of our legal department, HSLDA Senior Counsel Christopher Klicka replied to it with another letter of his own. Klicka pointed out that Colorado state law simply requires homeschooling parents to submit a statement containing the name, age, place of residence, and number of attendance hours for each child enrolled in a homeschool program. Any other information would not be sent by HSLDA member families.
If you are a member of HSLDA, reside in Logan County, and have received this form letter, please discard it and only use HSLDA notification forms.*
