Iowa--Reminder - Filing Deadlines Fast Approaching


Dear HSLDA members:


This is just a short reminder, for those who file a Competent Private
Instruction (CPI) form, that Iowa law requires that it be filed by the
first day of school in your area.

Unless you happen to notice school buses suddenly appearing on the
roads one morning, however, you may not know when school begins in
your area. If you are uncertain of the date, you may want to contact
your area schools.

Iowa law requires public schools to start within a certain window of
time. They can begin as late as the first Monday in December, but
they cannot start before the week in which September 1 falls (unless
September 1 is a Sunday, in which case school can start the previous
week). The department of education, however, can give a school
system permission to start earlier. Recently, an HSLDA member
reported that her school system has started already.

Under current law and regulations, parents are required to file two
copies of the CPI form with the local school board secretary.
However, actual practice may vary in some areas.

Also, the same member family reported that a school official recently
asked for "updated" immunization information. Families are not
required, of course, to provide immunization "updates." Immunization
information is only required the first time you file a CPI form for a
child.

Homeschooling at the high school level can be tremendously rewarding.
However, if you're not sure you can do it, we'd like to help.
Homeschool veterans Becky Cook and Diane Kummer have joined the HSLDA
staff to provide encouragement, ideas, and a helping hand to parents
with questions about homeschooling at the high school level.

You can contact them by calling HSLDA at (540) 338 5600 or via email
at info@hslda.org.


Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Staff Attorney
