The conference call strengthened the resolve the family had to homeschool their children. I explained Indiana homeschool law and walked them through the steps to withdraw their children from the public school. After a week of homeschooling, they received a visit from the DCS caseworker who wanted to know what the children were doing in their homeschool program.
I was able to speak with the caseworker and explain the right of the parents to homeschool their children. I pointed out that such a decision was understandable given the incompetence of the local school corporation in tracking their online students and the heavy-handed way in which they dealt with their own internal technical glitches.
