Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Your attendance is needed this Wednesday evening at the DC State Board
of Education (SBOE) Regular Meeting to persuade the SBOE that the
newest draft of homeschool regulations must be rewritten. If you
would like to speak during the public comment period before the
meeting begins, you must email Beverley Wheeler at
Beverley.Wheeler@dc.gov TODAY. There is no need to sign up if you
plan to only attend the meeting.

HSLDA attorneys will also be attending and publicly commenting at the
meeting.

ACTION REQUESTED

Attend the SBOE regular meeting this Wednesday, May 2, at 5:30 p.m.
and publicly comment on the proposed regulations. If you plan to
speak, you must contact Beverley Wheeler at Beverley.Wheeler@dc.gov no
later than TODAY. You will have two minutes to speak.

The meeting will be at:
441 4th Street, NW
Judiciary Square
Washington, DC 20001

For sample comments, see DCHEA President Ethan Reedy's letter to the
OSSE and SBOE at http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5134 .

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.

HSLDA members since 1993, our membership is just as important to
us as our children's curriculum. Thank you HSLDA for all you do on
our behalf! - West Valley, NY
