    There is no requirement in NCLB that a kid whose family moves to another state (or begins homeschooling) must notify their old school.

    In an effort to keep better tabs on students, parents of children who will not be returning next school year are required to provide verification to the Forsyth County school system.

    This could include students whose families are moving to another district or out of state, or are opting for a private school or home schooling.

    The requirement is part of the No Child Left Behind Act and the newly updated state department of education withdrawal rule.

    Reminds me of last week’s call from the frantic Mom moving to FL from out-of-state.

    The Mom had a daughter in K. It was Wednesday. The family had to move out of their house on Friday and they were coming to live with relatives in FL.

    The school was telling Mom she needed to provide proof of enrollment from the daughter’s new school.

    I suggested the Mom call in sick for one day and move on Friday. I thought she had enough on her mind to worry about, what with being evicted and all.

    Now, the school authorities may not have known the whole story. Kindest thing I can think to say.
