Washington--Declaration of Intent Deadline

Dear HSLDA Members:

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

Parents or guardians who seek to teach their children at home under
Washington's homeschool statute must submit a declaration of intent to
the superintendent of their local school district for any child
between the ages of 8 and 18. The declaration of intent must be
submitted by September 15, 2010, for any child of compulsory
attendance age.

In recent years, many school districts have provided homeschool
families with declaration of intent forms that request more
information that required under the law. According to the Revised Code
of Washington 28A.200.010 the declaration of intent need only include
the name and age (not the date of birth) of the child, and specify
whether a certified person will be supervising the instruction. HSLDA
has provided a declaration of intent form for our members to use; see
our Washington forms and resources page
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=9072 .

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
homeschool 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,

Thomas J. Schmidt
Staff Attorney
