    What? No.

    Letter of intent is good enough. She's talking out of her ass. She has nothing to say about your removing them from school. As long as she's been informed with your letter of intent you are good to go.

    I'll find a link for ya.

    You just need the letter of intent. Stick to your guns mama and don't let her intimidate you.

    Nope. As long as you have informed her of your intent that is all you need to do. To avoid the hassle, I might agree to meet with her but I would go in armed with information on your rights.

    Yep fax a letter of intent to the school. She is just gonna try to keep your kids there, cause she gets money for the school based on registered kids.

    They sent me a bunch of forms but I never sent them in, because the other mom's here said I didn't have to.
    I sent a letter of intent to homeschool to the school and to the board; don't even know if i sent it to the right person, just addressed it to the board.
    Never had a problem.

    Can you call the board in the morning to ask them if she's allowed to do that? What kind of forms would you need to sign inorder to get your DD's belongings, etc.?

    When I was in highschool, I wanted to drop a course (which I did not need, so I could concentrate on my other OAC's inoder to get a higher average and scholarship) and the counselor gave me a hard time about it, and then only after my father called and told the school “yes, she's going to drop it“, they allowed it. They tried to make me feel like I was doing something wrong, like it was illegal or something. And the vice principal also went out of her way to tell me I was spoiled. ?????? Spoiled? For wanting what was best for my education? Ok. Any who, it was all about goverment money, if I wasn't in a full time or certain amount of course load, they would get less money. It was all administrative bull #$@$. I wonder if that's what it is for your DD's principal. She thinks she's going to try and talk you into keeping her there or guilt tripping you or something, so your DD will stay so she won't lose the money.

    Thanks dm, I was gonna post the OFTP site but you beat me to it.

    School board needs letter of intent, and to be nice you should fax the principal a copy. THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO DO. As dm said, don't let her intimidate you; you do NOT need to fill in any forms.
