Hello I am a mother of special needs in Fl. There are loopholes here in the
Law that if you are registered in an umbrella school (and they vary with
involvement) basically you are accountable to them re: attendance sheets and
submitting your child's grades. It is considered a private school so the School
districts are not involved with curriculum.

I have a dear friend here with a special needs child unschooling now
registered in an umbrella school.

Her husband was offered a transfer to the Boston area and she is freaking out
about Ma. Law She was finding the HSLDA site confusing, when her computer
went on the blink. The library is a difficult place w/ her child's behavior. For

has never done the right thing for her child.

Thanks in advance
