HEAV encourages parents NOT to provide a district–even a friendly district–with more information than the law requires. This includes requests for information on surveys, NOIs, and district online forms that are not included in the homeschool statute. Recently, parents in Stafford expressed concern regarding participating in a survey that asked homeschool parents to share information on their instructional tools and curriculum. Parents were also asked if they would be interested in virtual, public school and whether they planned to enroll their high school students in public school programs and sports. (Participation in Virginia High School League sports is actually not allowed.) Although this may seem like providing harmless information to help the district “plan,” it goes beyond what the law requires. If you do not respond, it will not impact your homeschool in any way.
