Dealing with Public Schools

Dealing with Requests from Public School Districts
A number of school districts in Wisconsin are contacting homeschoolers to request information. Often the officials  do not understand the laws they point to as a basis for their requests. WPA has suggestions and a sample reply.

Problems with Public School Programs for Homeschoolers
Some public school districts have offered to reimburse homeschoolers for some of their approved educational expenses if the families enroll their children in the district, have their homeschools supervised and monitored by public school personnel, and have their children tested.

What To Do When School Officials Contact You
As homeschoolers we may be contacted by local school officials for a variety of reasons. It is up to us to see that our responses are appropriate and do not cause problems for us or other homeschoolers.
