Home School Legal Defense Association
Virginia--Partial Victory in Hanover County

----------------------------------------------------------------------
From the HSLDA E-lert Service...
----------------------------------------------------------------------

July 1, 2003

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Due in no small part to your phone calls to members of the Hanover
County School Board, the Board is now willing to reconsider its
policy toward religious exemptions. This is a tremendous step
forward! When I initially spoke to a Hanover representative on June
20 before your phone calls, there was no willingness to re-examine
the regulations. After that initial "no," homeschoolers across
Hanover County, including members of Home School Legal Defense
Association, Home Educators Association of Virginia, and Virginia
Home Educators Association, went to work and turned this "no" into a
"yes!"

In view of Hanover's change of heart, I recommend that our phone
calls to Board members stop for the time being. You will be getting
one, or possibly two letters from the Hanover County Public School
System that address the situation. We will look at those carefully
for evidence that the Board is sincerely willing to listen to
homeschoolers and re-evaluate the regulations.

Please continue to pray about the situation. We are grateful for
this a partial victory, but we will press on for a full victory in
which new, homeschool friendly policies are enacted.

Sincerely yours,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
