Nevada--It's Not Over Til It's Over

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

The child welfare reform bill passed on June 6, 2005.

This new law will require all social workers to be trained in their
duty to protect your constitutional and statutory rights during an
investigation. Furthermore, this bill will require social workers to
inform you of the allegations against you during an investigation. Up
until this point, social workers in Nevada will often withhold the
nature of the allegations from the individual and simply demand entry
into the home. They also are not currently trained in your Fourth
Amendment rights.

In our last E-lert regarding this bill, we informed you that it had
passed the Senate and was awaiting the chairman of the committee to
schedule the bill for a vote in the Assembly. However, despite our
best efforts, the chairman of the committee would not schedule a
hearing for the bill and simply let it die.

This action removed what we thought was the last chance of the bill
passing. All hope seemed lost. The next session was not for another
two years. It looked as if child welfare reform would just not happen
this year.

However, Frank Schnorbus, one of Nevada's homeschool leaders, along
with Senator Washington, the sponsor for Senate Bill 402, did not lose
hope. They put their heads together and found a way to attach S.B. 402
to another bill. After Barbara Dragon, another homeschool leader in
Nevada testified in support of the amended bill, the bill passed the
committee and passed the entire legislature on June 6, 2005. We
learned once again that it's not over til it's over!

These new constitutional restrictions will provide strong protection
of homeschoolers and other citizens in Nevada.

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

I cannot imagine our homeschool journey without HSLDA's strong
leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
