North Dakota--Calls Needed - House Bill 1265 in Senate


Dear HSLDA members and friends:


Good news! On Tuesday of this week, the Senate Education Committee
recommended a "do pass" for House Bill 1265 by a 4 - 2 vote. This bill
would change North Dakota law to permit all children with
developmental disabilities to be homeschooled. The supporters of the
bill had to overcome an attempt by the Department of Public
Instruction to amend the bill in committee to require that all service
plans for the disabled children be designed by the school district.
The bill is now in the Senate where a vote is expected as soon as
tomorrow.

Your calls are needed right away to members of the Senate, urging them
to vote for this legislation without any amendments.


ACTION REQUESTED:

1. Please contact your state senator and urge him to vote for this
legislation with the following message:

"Please vote for House Bill 1265 without any amendments. This bill
would allow parents to homeschool their developmentally disabled
children as every other state permits."

2. Please forward this email to every homeschooling family you know
who is not a member of HSLDA and urge them to contact their state
senator with the same message.

You can find the name and telephone number of your state
representative by using HSLDA's Legislative Toolbox at

HSLDA Senior Counsel
