Mississippi--Change in Certificate of Enrollment

Dear Mississippi Members:

This is a follow-up to my email to you of August 5, 2009, regarding
the September 15 deadline for filing the certificate of enrollment for
your home instruction program.

The certificate of enrollment form developed by the Office of
Compulsory School Attendance Enforcement has a change in it this year.
It contains the following inquiry at the bottom of the form to which
the parent, guardian, or custodian is to answer "yes" or "no": "The
Mississippi Department of Education has permission to provide a copy
of this certificate to the local school district upon request."

HSLDA joins with the Mississippi Home Educators Association in
recommending that homeschoolers check the "no" block in response to
this inquiry. We do not know for what purpose such information might
be used by local public school officials. Our position has always
been that homeschoolers should provide no more information about their
family to state officials than is required by state law.

Please contact us if you have any questions about completing your
certificate of enrollment.


Sincerely,

Dewitt T. Black, III
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
