HSLDA: District Form Not Required by Law

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Skyline R-II School District has sent out a letter and form to
homeschool families asking them to fill out the form and return it to
the district. The "declaration of intent to homeschool my children"
asks for the names and ages of all children being homeschooled, the
name, address, and phone number of the person teaching, and the name
and signature of the person making the declaration.

Homeschoolers are under no legal obligation to submit this to their
school district. Mo. Ann. Stat. sec. 167.042. states that parents "may
provide... a signed, written declaration of enrollment stating their
intent" to homeschool. But it is purely optional. It is perfectly fine
to homeschool in Missouri without ever declaring your intent to
homeschool to your school district, or volunteering any other
information about your children or your homeschool program.

Also keep in mind that if you file a declaration it may be treated as
a public record. The information could be shared with advertisers,
recruiters, news agencies, or any individual who simply requests to
see it.

If you receive any correspondence from your school district indicating
that completion of such a form is required, please don't hesitate to
contact us.

Sincerely yours,

Scott A. Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel
