Buena Vista

HEAV contacted Buena Vista after receiving concerns regarding the accuracy of information provided to parents over the phone related to the homeschool law.

Concerns included:

Notice of Intent vs. “approval”, the immediate withdrawal process, home educating with a GED, the NOI filing options, and evidence of progress. HEAV learned that much of the inaccurate information was provided by an individual who had not been trained as a homeschool liaison under the superintendent.

HEAV had a positive and productive conversation with Buena Vista regarding these reports, and we are pleased to share that internal processes will be developed to ensure parents are receiving accurate information from a trained, homeschool liaison. The best course, however, is for parents to check HEAV’s website for guidance on the law and parent’s compliance responsibilities.

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.
