New Hampshire--Technical Difficulties

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Many of you who received our email yesterday and tried to review the
links on the regulations webpage had some difficulties with being
directed to the wrong documents. We apologize about the technical
difficulties and have fixed the link to the Department of Education's
final proposed rules. As a reminder, yesterday we asked you to send a
polite message to state board members asking them to make some minor
but important changes to this final proposal by the DOE.

You can see the DOE's proposed final proposal at .


Please contact your district's member of the State Board of Education
and at least one of the members representing the public at large
before April 14. Give them the following message in your own words:

"Thank you for serving on the State Board of Education and for your
work on the rule making process for Home Education Rule 315. I have
reviewed the final proposed 'minimalist' approach recommended by the
Department of Education. Please remove the requirement in
315.04(a)(3) of the proposed rules that would require homeschoolers to
include a list of subjects in their notification. This requirement
was explicitly removed from the home education law by HB 406 in 2006.
Furthermore, the legislature has chosen not to reinsert on two
occasions since then in SB 337 and HB 367/368. I support the proposed
changes made to the board by homeschool leaders recommending placing
the five-day requirement in the first section of the rule and removing
the requirement for the list of subjects. Thank you again for your
support of home education in the Granite State."

There are five board members who represent each executive council
district and two members who represent the public at large. To find
