In regards XXXXX XXXXX 13A.10.01.01 I am required to notify them initially when I decide to homeschool.
( (1) A parent or guardian who chooses to teach his or her child at home shall initially sign a statement on a form prescribed by the State Department of Education)
I did this. The other section says if there is a change in status durning the school year then I should notify them. It says nothing about if a change occurs durning the summer.
(3) Change in Status. A parent or guardian shall notify the local school superintendent or the supervising nonpublic school or institution described in Regulation .05 of this chapter if a change occurs in the home school status of a child during the school year.
I completed the reviews durning the school year and my program was found to be complent.
The next year I did not notify them that I planned to conthiune homeschooling her because I did not. I sent the child out of the country to live with her father where she attended school. I am not required to notify them if I am not going to homeschool the next year.
(2) Annual Verification. Annually thereafter, before the beginning of the school year, a parent or guardian shall verify the continuation of home schooling for his or her child with the local school superintendent or with the supervising nonpublic school or institution described in Regulation .05 of this chapter.
There is no offical "withdrawal" procedure for homeschool students. No form to complete or procedure to follow. My other children who were in public school I followed the withdrawal procedure when I took them out of school and sent them to live in another country. The school system has this on file and I have copies of everything.
When I returned to the USA with my daughter and planeed to homeschool my daughter I did notify the school and was told that I had lost my right to homeschool her and I must promotly enroll her in school.
Therefore I feel that since I followed the law excatly and there is no law or procedure for withdrawing my child from homeschool then they are violating my rights to homeschool my child.
I hope I explained it in a way that you can understand it. It is a very complicated situation.

Yes...Can you provide me with the step by step instructions on how to file and also an attorney (you or someone else) who would be willing to review the petition or complaint onse I have typed it make sure that it is correct before I file it. I am willing to pay a fee to have them reviewed. Also I don't think they will backdown being that they have filed criminal charges against me for complusary attendence durning the time that she was out of the country.
