Virginia--Key School Board Meeting Tomorrow Evening

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends in Warren County:

Tomorrow night at 7 p.m. there will be a key meeting of the Warren
County School Board. Although the unlawful March 11 religious
exemption policy has been suspended, it has not been outright
repealed. The school board meeting tomorrow night presents us with an
important opportunity to move toward a permanent solution.

Leaders and representatives of a number of homeschool organizations
have worked together to draft a short but complete religious exemption
policy. This policy fully complies with state law, protects individual
liberties, and has the strong consensus support of the leaders and
representatives involved. Tomorrow night we will ask the school board
to repeal the March 11 policy and adopt the consensus policy.

ACTION REQUESTED

If your schedule permits, please come to the meeting tomorrow evening
at the Government Center at 220 North Commerce Avenue, Front Royal. A
large turnout from homeschool families will send a strong message.
Many leaders and representatives of homeschool organizations will be
speaking during the public comments section of the board meeting. If
you would like to speak, as well, I would very much appreciate it if
you would talk to me beforehand.

BACKGROUND

HSLDA's initial email on this subject suggested that the school board
may be hostile toward the religious exemption since they voted to
adopt a policy that was clearly hostile. However, subsequent events
lead me to believe that rather than being hostile, the board simply
was not accurately informed about the policy's impact. In light of
this, and the consensus policy homeschool leaders and representatives
have developed, HSLDA is no longer seeking the creation of a task
force.

Sincerely Yours,

Scott Woodruff
HSDLA Senior Counsel

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
