Scott Woodruff of the HSLDA reports that homeschooling families in Androscoggin County, Maine, have been receiving letters from the Department of Education expecting them to use recently created forms. However, these forms are not required by law and probably should not be used.
Anyone who uses the Department’s forms is giving the government information to which it is not entitled. This could cause unexpected adverse consequences.
For all or most families, the best path is to continue sending in their paperwork as they always have, and avoid the Department’s forms.
