Michigan School District Harasses Family Over Survey

One of our Michigan member families called us recently due to visits they have received two years in a row from the local school district staff asking the family to take a survey. The family told public school officials last year that they did not want to participate, and even had HSLDA contact them about it at that time. Unfortunately, the family received yet another visit on the same issue, so they called HSLDA again.

HSLDA Attorney Chris Klicka sent a letter to the school district telling them that the family was under no obligation to answer survey questions, and that the inappropriate visit should never be made again.

Soon after, the school district’s superintendent called back, apologizing for the miscommunication with the staff, saying he was unaware that they had gone to the family’s home. The superintendent then promised that no future visits would be made.
