Subject:         homeschooling and band in FL, please help
Date: September 14, 2010 at 7:13 pm PST

Hello there, I am a new homeschooling son is a
senior this year and has been a music major at his high
school until now. The district is saying that about two
weeks ago, they decided that no homeschoolers can
participate in band and this decision is made on the
district level. I brought up the Craig Dickinson Act statute
and was told that sometimes the district decisions can trump
the state laws. (??!!??) This seems ridiculous to me, and
actually I thought this was illegal. We are in Collier
County, FL. Does anyone have experience with this kind of
situation? Also, can anyone recommend an attorney in Florida
who might be familiar with this kind of thing? Any input is
so appreciated. I know I am new here. It has been a
nightmare trying to get straight answers from this district,
I have felt almost as if they are punishing my son for
withdrawing from school. I have gotten mucho attitude from
everyone I have dealt with at the school level. I don't care
about this, but I do feel my son has the right to be
supported in his future career (music) by this district.

Sorry for the probably unusually long post. Thanks for
reading and any input. Peace!
