Virgin Islands--Unauthorized "Checklist" Seeks Private Information

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The Virgin Islands Department of Education has sent many homeschool
families an unauthorized "Checklist for Home Education and Home
Schooling Programs" that seeks a shocking amount of private
information. It delves into why you homeschool, your educational
philosophy, your children's extracurricular activities, your "kitchen
and cafeteria resources," and so on.

You are not required to send any response to this checklist. You may
ignore it altogether, or write back and tell them that you are not
going to supply the requested information.

VI homeschool policy was formulated in 1998. It requires an annual
notice of intent to homeschool, and authorizes the Department of
Education to conduct semi-annual portfolio reviews. But it does not
authorize Department staff to demand the information in the
"Checklist."

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel

There's not much you can get for 33 cents a day. Why not put your
money toward peace of mind for yourself, your family, and their
future?
