Fall 2005

Harrison County A parent requested textbooks for her child, who was registered with the county as a first-grade homeschool student. She wanted only one book for each subject, but requested specific texts (e.g., the 2nd grade language arts text, 1st grade math and science, and 3rd grade social studies). The textbook warehouse refused her request, but after some discussion with the parent and further consideration, the attendance director decided to allow it.

Harrison County Homeschoolers in Harrison usually receive an acknowledgement from the school board when they file a notice of intent, which they use to obtain teacher discounts at various stores and events. When a parent called to ask when the acknowledgements would be sent out, she was informed that the county is reviewing the curriculum of every homeschooler. There is no word yet on when the county expects to complete its homeschool curriculum review.
