Ohio--No More Calls Needed to Akron City Council

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Thank you for your calls and emails to the Akron City Council
regarding the "Sewers for scholarships" proposal.

I was contacted today by a member of the Akron City Council,
homeschooling father Mike Freeman, who told me that he, the mayor and
others on the council had agreed that the eligibility requirements for
the Akron scholarship should not discriminate against homeschoolers.
Councilman Freeman has assured HSLDA that changes will be made to the
legislation to allow homeschooled students to be eligible for the
scholarship without attending an Akron public school.

It appears that students who are homeschooled in Akron from grades
1-12 and meet the requirements set by the State of Ohio will be
eligible for a full scholarship as long as they meet certain
reasonable college or university homeschool admission requirements.
We appreciate your care and concern. If you have any questions please
feel free to contact our staff at (540) 338-5600

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
Staff Attorney
