Information obtained by Tallahassee Reports shows that over 33% of Leon County’s 2,346 students enrolled in home school have failed to comply with home school annual evaluation requirements.
Some of the students have been out of compliance for one or more years.
An audit just completed by Leon County Schools also found that these students should have been withdrawn due to failure to comply with the evaluation requirements.
TR was told via email late today that notices have been sent out to all families that they will be withdrawn in 30 days if they do not turn in an annual evaluation.
On March 7th, Tallahassee Reports published a story that showed Leon County Schools home school population was growing five times faster than the state average.
School officials believe that the growth rate is due to the non-compliance issue.
After the report was published, TR requested home school data from Leon County Schools.
TR will continue to investigate.
