HSLDA Phone Survey--Member Help Needed

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

April 25, 2002

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

We need your assistance. Through the years, HSLDA has enjoyed many
productive partnerships with statewide home schooling organizations
around the country. In order to help these organizations in their
quest to be of service, HSLDA will soon be conducting a survey to
assess what services its members believe are the most helpful. The
purpose of this survey is to take these statistical findings and
share them with the state leaders, not as a way of criticism, but as
a tool which will help equip them with the knowledge they need to do
their best.

We will be calling a very small percentage of our members in the
coming weeks for the purpose of conducting this survey. The survey
should take around five minutes to complete. The questions are
generic, not personal, and the answers will be kept confidential,
only being reported as part of the overall body of responses.

Please help us by taking the time to answer the questions. We will be
calling in the late afternoon local time, as that seems to be the
least intrusive time in regard to home schooling and family
activities. Of course if you do not want to participate, a simple "no
thank you" is all you will need to say, and our callers will
understand perfectly.

With members in every state, HSLDA is uniquely able to assess current
trends in home education. This survey represents a statistically
relevant sampling of members in all 50 states. We hope that this
information will be useful to those who have served so well, for so
long. It is anticipated that the results of the survey will be
available to the state leaders at the HSLDA National Christian Home
Educators Leadership Conference in October.

Thank you in advance for helping us help our tremendous state
organizations serve you.
