Gasconade Apologizes for Notice Gaffe

The Gasconade County R-1 School District sent a letter to homeschool families saying in bold, underlined text: “Written notice from a parent is required by the State of Missouri for reporting purposes.” The letter asked parents to fill out an “Intent to Home School” form that was enclosed.

After an alert member brought this to our attention, HSLDA Senior Counsel Scott A. Woodruff wrote to the school and explained the error in the letter. Written notice of homeschooling is not required in Missouri.

The author of the school letter promptly replied, apologized for the confusion, and acknowledged that the district understands that parents are not required to report that they are homeschooling.
