Filed: October 6, 1997, Dallas.
Nature of Case: Dorcas Hill began home educating her 14-year-old daughter at the beginning of the 1997-98 school year, but the Dallas Independent School District (ISD) was not satisfied with Mrs. Hill's verbal and written notices of intent to home school and charged her with thwarting the compulsory attendance law.
HSLDA obtained dismissal of the charge, but, the school district again initiated criminal complaints against Mrs. Hill and her daughter. On June 22, 1998, HSLDA appeared for trial on their behalf. The case was dismissed on September 14, 1998.
