HSLDA Policy Statement

Social Services Investigation Cases

We desire to assist and advise our members in every contact with a social worker and/or police officer in investigations resulting from allegations of abuse or neglect. If home schooling is an issue, we will represent our member families until the issue is resolved.

On Fourth Amendment unreasonable search and seizure issues, HSLDA will assist and advise our members whenever the privacy of their home is violated by forced or coerced entry for the purpose of an unsubstantiated investigation.

HSLDA membership benefits do not extend to court actions resulting from non-home schooling matters. However, in circumstances where there is a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment, HSLDA may, as we have done in the past, choose to take the cases in an effort to establish legal precedent.
