A Vernon County family withdrew their son from public school in December and gave an appropriate letter of withdrawal to the principal.

Nonetheless, the family soon received a letter from a juvenile officer asking them to attend a meeting to discuss their son’s truancy. The family contacted HSLDA for help.

Senior Counsel Scott A. Woodruff called and spoke to the juvenile officer. Woodruff explained that the family was in compliance with Missouri homeschool law and that no meeting was needed since there was no truancy. He followed up by sending the officer a copy of the family’s letter of withdrawal.

The juvenile officer agreed that no meeting was necessary, and he closed his file.
