Send your letter within 2 weeks of your local school beginning. It is best to send it certified mail. In my opinion, it is also a good option to meet with your local Pupil Personnel so they can see your face and you can see their face. Get to know this person….they are not the enemy. They have good intentions of protecting the children of the community. I have established a relationship with our pupil personnel and she is a fine woman who does her job well. Now, I’m not going to say that I would invite her to come and look at my curriculum/watch my schooling/check up on me every 5 seconds without a warrant 🙂 I would, however, invite her in for a coke and a chat. These people are not the boogie men. They are doing their job, albeit, sometimes zealously in some cases. Every state is different. I encourage you to get familiar with your states laws and requirements.
