Ohio--Home Education Rules Up for
Review by Ohio Department of Education

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

HSLDA recently learned that the Ohio Department of Education (ODE)
intends to review the home education rules in the Ohio Administrative
Code Section 3301-34. It appears that these rules are up for the
regular five-year legislative review process.

The ODE plans to send an email notice to stakeholders and post a
notice on the home education webpage. The ODE is indicating that it
will post an invitation to comment by the second week in July,
requesting that comments, feedback, and suggestions be submitted by
the end of July.

HSLDA's position is that there is no need for any changes at this
time. We are asking Ohio homeschoolers to be prepared to send
comments to the ODE expressing their opinions regarding the rules and
the need for changes.

As we have learned this year in a number of states where there have
been legislative battles over homeschool regulations, homeschoolers
can be very successful when they work together to influence
policymakers. We appreciate your membership and your work to preserve
homeschool freedoms. We will continue to monitor this process and
keep you informed.

We hope you have a pleasant summer, and as you prepare to submit your
notification paperwork to your superintendents, we stand ready to
assist our members with any issues that may arise.

Thank you for your support and all you do to preserve homeschooling
freedom in the Buckeye State.


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

Research can be grueling-digging through archives, wading through
articles, conducting interviews. But if it's related to
homeschooling, you can relax a little. There's a good chance that
you'll find what you're looking for in HSLDA's bimonthly
Home School Court Report. Providing in-depth, insightful articles
on much of what affects the world of homeschoolers, the
Court Report is a must-read for the serious homeschooler. This
publication is provided free to each HSLDA member.
