I sent in a letter of withdrawal to the public school on Monday, which was confirmed as received and then filed the private affidavit Tuesday with a copy to the school, and on Wednesday a truant officer called me.

I called back and left a message stating I'd be happy to resend the affidavit since it appears he didn't see it. No response.

Friday I get a letter stating I was called to a SARB meeting 2/6 which I am not allowed to reschedule for any reason. I called the truant officer AGAIN and left a message as I feel it is a mistake since I have withdrawn my daughter from public school and enrolled her in a private school. No response.

Has anyone else actually gone to a SARB meeting? What are they trying to do? The note says it is to make a plan for my truant child. I already have a plan, which is what we are currently doing (homeschool, which BTW, we are absolutely loving, I wish we had done this long ago).

I checked her online school records and she is still showing enrolled with new absences showing all week. Why are they choosing to ignore the withdrawal? It makes no sense to me.

EDITED TO ADD: We are in CALIFORNIA and my student is in 12th grade.

What a nightmare!!!

If you had asked me first, I would have advised you to join HSLDA before filing your affidavit, because then you would call them and that would be the end of that.

The rule of thumb for a SARB is that you don't show up without an attorney. They will have all the suits in the world at this meeting, which is really stupid because YOUR CHILD IS A SENIOR!!!

You might try contacting HSLDA and see if they will do anything. You could also contact Homeschool Associates of California and see if someone there can help. Also, contact Family Protection Ministries; they aren't attorneys, but they might have some advice for you.

If you end up having to go alone, take your affidavit with you and the proof that you did inform the school that you were withdrawing her.

And please stay in touch here. I want to know how things go with you, k?

Hello!

Well much better now. I contacted the California Homeschool Network and they answered me this weekend! What a wonderful group. They wrote a very nice letter to the local SARB representative and got the whole thing dismissed. SARB was not recognizing my private school as they had apparently not seen the affidavit. Within 10 minutes of receiving the letter and link to my PSA the SARB rep called and took us off of the SARB meeting schedule.

I am very relieved and can't thank California Homeschool Network enough for taking the time to help me out.

My daughter is enjoying homeschool SO MUCH. I wish we had done this a few years ago!

Thanks,
Missi
