Home instruction of children.
Purpose of legislation
Eliminates (i) the requirement that correspondence courses must be approved by the Superintendent of Public Instruction in order to qualify as a suitable program for home instruction and (ii) the provision allowing parents to provide programs that are judged by the division superintendent to include the standards of learning objectives for language arts and mathematics. In addition, the bill allows for the provision of home instruction if the parent provides a program through distance learning or if the parent provides evidence that he is able to provide an adequate education for the child.
