Ohio--08 Schools Continue to File Notice
to Parents with Department of Education

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

As many of you know, the Home School Legal Defense Association has
been working with the Ohio Department of Education to resolve a
situation with non-chartered, non-tax supported schools, otherwise
known as "08 Schools." This year the Ohio Department of Education
demanded additional information from 08 School administrators
regarding special education and IDEIA funding for 08 Schools. We
continuing to seek a resolution of this matter, but are having to wait
for certain vacationing Ohio Department of Education employees to
return.

Members who have sent the HSLDA Notice to Parents form to the Ohio
Department of Education have had their form rejected, and received
along with their rejected Notice to Parents a letter and form that
they are told they are "required" to use.

After speaking with Mike Hubble at the Ohio Department of Education,
we agreed that the law does require the Notice to Parents to be filed
with the Ohio Department of Education. (The disagreement is whether
anything more is required). Thus, at this point, those who have sent
their Notice and have had it returned, should resend it to the Ohio
Department of Education. Also, members should send a copy of the
Notice to HSLDA so that we can compile a list of who we will need to
contact when the issue is fully resolved.

The copy of your Notice, along with your phone number and email
address, can be mailed to:

Scott Somerville--08 Schools
Home School Legal Defense Association
P.O. Box 3000
Purcellville, VA 20134

Sincerely,

Scott W. Somerville, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
