Rhode Island: Don't File Notice of Intent Yet

Dear HSLDA Member:

We are advising HSLDA member families in the Exeter-West Greenwich
school district to postpone filing their letter of intent for the
coming year.

For over a year now, HSLDA, Amy Brock of Rhode Island Guild of Home
Teachers, Kristine Greene, and other local homeschoolers have been
hammering away at Exeter-West Greenwich to get an acceptable
homeschool policy. The written 1994 policy is obsolete and abusive.

A few weeks ago the school system sent out a policy revision to area
homeschool families and implied that local homeschoolers approved it.

That is not accurate.

The version sent out was under discussion, but never approved or
consented to on behalf of homeschoolers. While the revision is an
improvement over the old, obsolete policy, it still falls short.

Until you hear further, we advise you to hold off filing for the
coming year. If you wish, you can file any year-end progress report
or attendance report you were planning on filing.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Sincerely,

Scott A. Woodruff
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.
