Wisconsin--Annual Notice to Department of Public Instruction Reminder

Dear HSLDA members:

This is just a reminder for those operating under Wisconsin's
homeschool law that your annual notice of intent to homeschool is due
October 15.

Wisconsin's "home-based private educational program" statute requires
every homeschool family to submit a statement of enrollment to the
Department of Public Instruction (DPI), indicating whether their
homeschool program meets all the requirements under the law.

You will be asked the following questions, and to meet all the
requirements of a "home-based private educational program" under
Wisconsin statutes, you must be able to answer "True" to the following
statements:

a. "primary purpose of the program is to provide private or
religious-based education,"

b. "the program is privately controlled,"

c. the program provides at least 875 hours of instruction each school
year,

d. "the program provides a sequentially progressive curriculum of
fundamental instruction" in the Required Subjects: (which "does not
require the program to include in its curriculum any concept, topic or
practice in conflict with the program's religious doctrines," or
exclude any such topic), and

e. the program is not operated to circumvent the compulsory attendance
law.

If your school system or DPI asks you to provide information in
addition to the above requirements, please let us know.

The form is available by calling 608-266-5761 or toll free
1-888-245-2732, ext. 1. The DPI mails the forms out every Friday. It
should be completed and submitted to the DPI at the following address:


Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
School Management Services/Home-Based
125 South Webster Street
P.O. Box 7841
Madison, WI 53707-7841

According to the law, your notice should be received by the DPI by
October 15.

Wisconsin, visit our web page at www.hslda.org and go to Wisconsin on

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.
