Missouri--Branson Using Ploy to get "Declaration of Enrollment"

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Branson Public Schools recently sent a misleading letter to area
homeschool families referring to the homeschool statute and saying,
"In order to meet these requirements, we will need the attached form
[a Declaration of Enrollment] completed and returned to us."

Missouri law allows a family to file an optional "Declaration of
Enrollment." It is rarely, if ever, to a family's benefit to file it.
If filed, it may be treated as a public document and be made available
to any interested party, whether their intentions are honest or
otherwise.

When public schools use tactics like this, the motive can often be
traced back to money. Public schools may get a little extra money from
the state for every family that files the optional declaration.

If you think you might be one of those few families who might be
benefitted by filing, please call so we can talk. Otherwise, feel
free to disregard a school's invitation or demand to file.

Sincerely,

Scott Woodruff
HSLDA Senior Counsel
