ROE 12-Clay, Crawford, Jasper and Lawrence Counties

ROE 12 (Clay County, Crawford County, Jasper County, Lawrence County, Richland County) calls in homeschoolers on a regular basis to the Truancy Review Board..

I don’t see anything on their website about homeschooling, but might have missed it.

One homeschooler stood up to them and refused to conform. Hopefully there have been more. Apparently some homeschoolers are called in as often as 4 times a year to the Truancy Review Board.

Please remember, homeschoolers, that registration is not mandated or necessary.  Your written assurance to the Regional Office of Education is sufficient in that you are legally exempt from the compulsory attendance statute because your child(ren) are taught the branches of education taught to children of corresponding age and grade in the public schools, and where the instruction of the child in the branches of education is in the English language.
