A homeschool family in Prince William County took advantage of the notice of intent form on the member’s-only section of the HSLDA website and filed it with Prince William County Public Schools.

A school system representative responded and asked the family to fill out the school’s own notice of intent form and submit a “scope and sequence” of their academic program.

HSLDA Senior Counsel Scott A. Woodruff wrote a letter to the representative explaining that the family’s first notice of intent was completely adequate, and that a “scope and sequence” is not necessary since Virginia law now requires only a list of subjects to be taught.

The family heard nothing further from the school system.
