Mississippi--Certificate of Enrollment Reminder

Dear Mississippi Members:

For those of you planning to comply with Mississippi's home
instruction law for the 2010-2011 school year, we are providing the
following information by way of reminder.

A parent, guardian, or custodian of a child desiring to provide a home
instruction program must file a certificate of enrollment which
includes the names, address, and telephone number of parents and
children, dates of birth of children, and a "simple description of the
type of education" the children are receiving. The form of the
certificate of enrollment is prepared by the Office of Compulsory
School Attendance of the State Department of Education. It may be
obtained from the school attendance officer of the school district in
which you reside. The certificate must be returned to the school
attendance officer by September 15 of each school year.

Some school districts may attempt to require that a curricular
description be included with the certificate of enrollment. A "simple
description of the type of education" the children are receiving does
not include a description of your child's curriculum. Rather, you may
simply indicate that you intend to provide a home instruction program.


Please note that HSLDA will defend any member family whose right to
teach their children at home is challenged by the state--even if their
religious convictions prohibit them from complying with the state home
school law. The information in this email is provided to those who
intend to comply with state law and to assist you in meeting the
statutory deadline.

Please contact us if you have any questions about getting started this
school year.


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:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.

HSLDA members since 1993, our membership is just as important to
us as our children's curriculum. Thank you HSLDA for all you do on
our behalf! - West Valley, NY
