Tidbits & Trivia

Indiana has never adopted Daylight Savings Time.


Threatened for Failure to Register

A public school official recently threatened to prosecute an Indiana Home School Legal Defense Association family for the misdemeanor of “failure to register.” HSLDA attorney Scott Woodruff explained to the school official that Indiana law does not require home schoolers to register. (However, under some circumstances, a home schooler may be obligated to provide certain information to certain officials. See the May/June 1999 Court Report, p. 24, for a detailed summary of Indiana’s home school requirements.)

Part of the public school official’s misunderstanding may have come from a website operated by the Indiana Department of Education, which states that home schoolers must register. A representative of this department has indicated a willingness to consider deleting the reference to “registration” so that the website will line up more closely with existing law.
