Middlebury Form Not Required

Jim Conner, assistant superintendent for Middlebury Community Schools, sent a letter to a Home School Legal Defense Association member family, insisting that they sign and notarize an Intent to Provide Instruction at Home form for each of their children. The letter ended with a threat that failure to return the form “will place the school system in a position of notifying the legal authorities of your child’s absence.”

However, Indiana home school families are under no obligation to fill out any such form. HSLDA reminded Mr. Conner that Indiana law treats a private school located in the home of the student the same as any other private school. At the time of this writing, the family has had no further contact with the assistant superintendent.
