Letter to Lamesa ISD – September 13, 2011

As another school year got underway, THSC found it necessary to inform an elementary principal at Lamesa ISD that it is not necessary for a parent or guardian to make an appearance at the school or complete school forms to disenroll their child if they have given written notice of withdrawal; neither is it required by law.

Apparently, as part of their policy, Lamesa ISD requires parents, who are withdrawing their children from that district to homeschool, to review a 10-page “Home School Information Packet,” which includes several pages for parents to sign and return. Tim later followed up with a second letter to the assistant superintendent explaining that this packet was in direct violation of the laws regarding home schooling that have been determined by the courts.

Read the first letter.
