Hard as a Rock—Granite

Every year, Home School Legal Defense Association has the pleasure of interacting with Ms. Frosty Perkins, the home school education coordinator of the Granite School District over either a request for a birth date, an exemption letter, or some other extraneous issue. However, Ms. Perkins is not alone in creating headaches for some homeschooling families. HSLDA sends a number of letters to school districts across Utah where new or untrained personnel continue to incorrectly apply Utah’s homeschool law. It is understandable that in some cases school officials may not clearly understand the law. HSLDA is glad to be able to explain the law for these officials and to help resolve issues for Utah homeschoolers. HSLDA’s legal staff is glad to serve homeschoolers in both large and small matters. Allow us to serve you by answering your general homeschool questions or addressing specific issues you may have with your local school district. Utah’s regulatory homeschool environment is moderate, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some hard rocks out there.
