Washington--Declaration of Intent Deadline Fast Approaching


Dear HSLDA members:

For those of you planning to comply with Washington's homeschool law
for the 2005-2006 school year, we are providing the following
information by way of reminder.

Parents or guardians who seek to teach their children at home under
Washington's homeschool statute must submit a declaration of intent to
the superintendent of their local school district for any child
between the ages of 8 and 18. This declaration of intent must be
submitted by September 15, 2005.

In recent years, many school districts have provided homeschool
families with declaration of intent forms that request more
information than required under the law. According to the Revised Code
of Washington 28A.200.010 the declaration of intent need only include
the name and age (not the date of birth) of the child, and specify
whether a certified person will be supervising the instruction. HSLDA
has provided a declaration of intent form for our members to use, see
Forms and Resources
http://members.hslda.org/state/WA/WA-DeclarationofIntent.pdf .

Please note that HSLDA will defend any member family whose right to
teach their children at home is challenged by the state. The
information in this email is provided to those who intend to comply
with state law and to assist you in meeting the statutory deadline.

Please contact us if you have any questions about getting started this
school year.


Sincerely,

Thomas J. Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all at
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
