Virginia: Notice of Intent Deadline Approaching

Dear Virginia HSLDA Members,

If you intend to homeschool a child of compulsory attendance age this
upcoming school year under the homeschool statute, your notice of
intent is due to your local superintendent by August 15. Although it
is not necessary to use any form at all, we have posted a form on the
members-only section of our website (available at
http://members.hslda.org/state/VA/default.asp) for those who want to
be certain they are supplying all that is required, but no more than
is required. Forms created by local school systems almost always ask
for information to which they are not entitled. If a child will turn
18 before the first day of school in your district, a notice does not
need to be filed.

When filing a notice of intent, a description of curriculum must be
attached for each child. This is simply a list of the subjects you
intend to teach that child, and a list of the textbooks that you will
use for each subject.

Families under the religious exemption do not need to file a notice of
intent. Call HSLDA's Peter LaRock at (540) 338-5600 to receive a
packet of helpful information or answers to other questions if you
plan on contacting your school system about the religious exemption.

If a parent is a Virginia certified teacher, and their credentials
have been approved by the local superintendent for tutoring, no notice
needs to be filed with respect to children taught under that teacher.

Very truly yours,

Scott A. Woodruff, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> 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.
