New York--Deadline Approaching

Dear HSLDA Members,

As many of you know, the Individualized Home Instruction Plan or
"IHIP" is due to be submitted within four weeks from when you received
the forms from your local school district or by August 15, whichever
is later.

Thus, if you received the IHIP form from your school district before
July 15, you have until August 15 to submit your completed forms. If
you didn't receive your packet of materials from your school district
until after July 15, you have four weeks from the date you did receive
the forms to return your IHIP.

If you still have not received your packet of materials but have
submitted your notice of intent, you are not legally required to
submit an IHIP. However, we strongly recommend that you keep records
of what you intend on doing and even write out an IHIP for your own
records. It is also a good idea to keep quarterly reports. This way
you will be prepared for when (or if) your school district sends you
the required IHIP packet. If you have any questions, please don't
hesitate to contact us for further information.

Under Section 100.10(d) each child's IHIP shall contain:

1. The child's name, age and grade level;

2. A list of the syllabi, curriculum materials, textbooks or plan of
instruction to be used in each of the required subject listed in
subdivision (e) of this section;

3. The dates for submission to the school district of the parents'
quarterly reports as required in subdivision (g) of this section.
These reports shall be spaced in even and logical periods;

4. The names of the individuals providing instruction.

If your child is still compulsory school attendance age and has not
graduated from high school, but will be attending college full-time
(at least 12 semester hours a semester), you will need to indicate
this on your IHIP.

This information is provided to better assist our members. If you have
any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
