district incident background

Albermarle County

Informed parents have reported concerns regarding an office request for personal information that is inconsistent with the law. HEAV connected with Albemarle to share the law does not require parents to provide information that goes beyond what the statute requires. (Reference: Sosebee v. Franklin County School Board) We are pleased to report that our correspondence was very well received by the Albemarle district: “I…love to refer parents to the HEAV team and website, so we really appreciate your support! We’ll continue to ensure this is an optional field…” HEAV thanks Albemarle for honoring the home educators in their district and for their diligence in ensuring their processes remain consistent with the homeschool law.

We’d love to hear from you! If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at 804-278-9200 or via our contact form.
