Coventry Drops "Agreement" Requirement

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

Dear Coventry Area Member or Friend:

I am very happy to report that Coventry Public Schools will no longer
be requiring homeschool families to sign an agreement.

I had a conversation with Coventry assistant superintendent Dr.
Vincent J. Hawkins today (August 27). After I explained to him my
concerns about the agreement, he said families would not be required
to sign it. This is what he said the school system needs from
homeschool families:

1. Notification that the family is going to homeschool their
children;
2. Maintenance of an attendance record to be turned in at the end of
the year;
3. Submission of work samples at the end of the year.

I have asked Dr. Hawkins for written confirmation of this, but the
situation appears to be headed for resolution.

Sincerely,

Scott A Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
