HSLDA: Iowa HSAP Families Now Welcome in HSLDA

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

With state financial support for HSAPs (home school assistance
programs) now reduced to 30% of per-pupil funding, and the recent
addition of the requirement that HSAP families file a CPI form
annually, we have decided to open up membership in HSLDA to HSAP

We welcome the opportunity to serve Iowa HSAP families!

While disputes about your HSAP program itself (e.g., benefits, books,
teachers, structure, operation, etc.) or with HSAP public school staff
fall outside the area in which HSLDA provides assistance, we can help
HSAP families by:

1. Assisting you during social services investigations.
2. Helping your child get into college or a job, if the diploma is
3. Helping your child enter the military, if any educational issue
4. Offering guidance through our special needs coordinators, high
school coordinators, and struggling learner coordinators.
5. Assisting you if you are accused of violating Iowa's compulsory
attendance law.
6. Assisting you in protecting your constitutional parental rights in
the realm of education.
7. Protecting constitutional parental rights when threatened in the
state or United States legislatures.
8. Explaining what Iowa law requires--and helping you respond to
unlawful demands of school officials.
9. Assisting you in transferring out of your HSAP, if you desire.
10. And in many other ways.

HSLDA does not endorse or recommend HSAP programs. A HSAP blends
features of independent homeschooling with features of public
education. This leaves HSAP families in the end with fewer rights
than independent homeschool families.

Because of this, we will continue to encourage HSAP families to
migrate toward the greater freedom available through independent
homeschooling. Less government control means more parental control.
And we believe that's good for families!

HSLDA staff will be available at the NICHE conference this weekend to
answer any questions you may have. And to welcome HSAP families to
apply for membership!

-> 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

I cannot imagine our homeschool journey without HSLDA's strong
leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
