Wyoming--Clarification: Curriculum, Yes, Approval, No

Dear HSLDA Members:

The following sentence in our last email may have caused some
confusion: "A number of Wyoming members have contacted the Home School
Legal Defense Association after receiving a letter from their local
superintendent indicating that they must submit their homeschool
curriculum for approval."

Homeschoolers in Wyoming are required by law to submit their
curriculum to the local board of trustees showing that a basic
academic educational program is provided (for more information, see
http://www.hslda.org/laws/analysis/Wyoming.pdf). However, the law
does not give the board of trustees the authority to "approve" or
"disapprove" that curriculum. Rather, the board's task is to ensure
that a homeschooling parent has complied with the provisions of the
law. If the home education program is in compliance with the law, the
board must exempt the children in that program from attendance at the
public school.

We hope this clears up any confusion that may have arisen as a result
of our last email. Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
