    ANYONE KNOW FL HS LAW? This is confusing:

    A 15-year-old girl has missed 28 of 44 days of school at Pedro Menendez High School, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office said, resulting in her mother’s arrest…

    Berthiaume told The St. Augustine Record Monday night that her daughter is mentally disabled and is in special education classes.

    She typically refuses to go to school, Berthiaume said.

    About two weeks ago, Berthiaume said, she and her husband met with school district officials, where she was told that her daughter could not be home-schooled…

    Jim Welu, the district’s executive director of Student Services, said Berthiaume’s daughter had previously been home-schooled for nearly two years. “The rules are, you go on home-schooling, then you provide educational evaluations,” he told The Record. “That never happened with that family.”

    The option to home-school goes away if parents do not provide evaluations for their children, he said.

    Is this really the law in FL? I’m going to have to do some digging to see if I can figure this one out. I’ll update later.

    UPDATE: Steven Gallagher supplied a link and explanation of FL HSing law here.
