Parents charged with violating attendance law

Filed: December 11, 2000, Houston.

Nature of Case: During Thanksgiving break, the B family pulled their six-year-old son out of public school and advised the school that they would be privately educating him. Two weeks later, the school district charged Mr. and Mrs. B with violating the compulsory attendance law and summoned them to court. In compliance with Texas law, the B family delivered a letter of assurance to the school district on December 26, 2000.

Status: Finally, prior to trial on February 5, 2001, the district agreed to dismiss the charges.
