  • What? If CPS is called on you, they are going to come to your house to investigate. Period.

  • One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. If CPS has reason to investigate they will investigate.

  • I've heard that they can, but never used them. I don't know what state you're in, but if you're following your state's laws for homeschooling, they shouldn't bother you. I homeschooled here in California, and in Wyoming and never had any problems. HSLDA has a website online, you can probably e-mail them your questions.

  • No. HSLDA (along with other agencies/organizations) step in when the school district, CPS, universities, trade schools, employers, etc break the law or give misinformation in regards to homeschooling.

    If CPS launches an investigation on your family SOLELY because you are homeschooling, that is against the law & the would step in.

  • As stated the last time you asked this question, even if CPS were going to come to the house, why are you worried? If all is well, then there shouldn't be a problem.

  • If you were a member of HSLDA, and CPS came to your house because of a homeschooling issue, yes they would help you.

    If CPS came to your house for any reason outside of a homeschooling issue, no, HSLDA could not help you.
