District of Columbia--HSLDA Receives Word That Homeschool
Regulations Were Removed from June 18 Meeting Agenda

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Good news! Last night, the executive director of the D.C. State Board
of Education informed HSLDA that the vote on the homeschooling
regulations has been removed from the June 18 meeting agenda.
According to the director, substantial changes have been made to the
regulations, so the comment period must be extended. This is a
breakthrough, and we are thankful to have more time to influence the
outcome of these regulations!

These changes have been made because you -- homeschoolers in D.C. and
throughout the country -- are involved in this process. The SBOE and
OSSE are paying attention to your calls, emails, and presence at their
meetings -- and your comments have influenced them to revise the
regulations yet again.

Thank you for all of your hard work and persistence! Yesterday I
participated in the Kojo Nnamdi Show on WAMU with D.C. State
Superintendent of Education Deborah Gist, and D.C. SBOE District 2
Member Sekou Biddle. During the program, Mr. Biddle commented that he
has received over 1,000 emails about this issue. You can listen to
his comments, as well as the remainder of the interview online at
http://wamu.org/programs/kn/08/06/12.php#20841

At this point, HSLDA is still working to obtain a copy of the most
recent revisions to the regulation. We do not yet know when the
additional comment period will begin and end, but we will keep you
updated as we gather more information.

Thank you again!

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney
