Virginia--Full Committee Hearing on Sports Access Bill Monday

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

HB 2395, which would give homeschoolers access to public school
sports, was passed by a strong majority of 6 to 2 in subcommittee
yesterday. It appears to have much more support than similar bills
proposed in past years.

This Monday, January 24, the full House Education Committee will hold
a hearing on the bill in House Room C in the General Assembly Building
in Richmond at 9 a.m. (Other bills will also be heard during the same
time slot.)

Many other states allow homeschoolers access to public school sports.
Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow of Florida is a high-profile example
of the result of a homeschooler participating in public school sports.

We have reviewed the Virginia bill and concluded that it will not
cause problems for those families who do not wish to participate in
public school sports. The bill would not give religiously exempt
students access to public school sports.

HSLDA neither opposes nor supports the bill. However, if you are
interested in supporting the bill, you may want to attend the hearing
on Monday and testify in support.

Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
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:

We're thankful for the support HSLDA membership provides us. We'd
never homeschool without them. We highly recommend HSLDA to all
homeschoolers. - North Tonawanda, NY

I cannot imagine our homeschool journey without HSLDA's strong
leadership, protection, and guidance. God bless HSLDA!
