Rhode Island--Cranston Drops "Family Registration Form" Demand

Dear HSLDA Members:

Many Cranston area homeschool families recently received a letter from
the assistant superintendent telling them that it is "necessary" to
fill out a "Family Registration Form."

The form asks for child custody arrangements, the child's place of
birth, the child's racial information, emergency contact information,
other children living in the residence, et cetera. It appears to be a
form designed for the use of families enrolled in Cranston public
schools.

This morning I spoke with a representative of the office of the
assistant superintendent and explained to her that this form could not
be required of homeschool families. After I explained that the form
was problematic, she quickly agreed that homeschool families are under
no obligation to return it, and also agreed to not send it out again
in subsequent years.

Families who have already filed an appropriate notice of intent for
this year should feel free to disregard the "family registration
form."
