August 08, 2005 - Alston Middle School sent their "volunteer" - resource officer (A FULLY DRESSED UNIFORMED POLICE OFFICER IN HIS OFFICIAL POLICE CRUISER) out to a "New Beginnings Home School Association" member door
today. This is the FIRST" day of school and not BEYOND the TENTH DAY of school, which means the compulsory attendance law time frame has not even passed yet.

Further, the "volunteer" - resource officer (A FULLY DRESSED UNIFORMED POLICE OFFICER IN HIS OFFICIAL POLICE CRUISER) falsely informed the LEGALLY HOME SCHOOLING FAMILY that they had to PROVIDE the PUBLIC SCHOOL with official paperwork from their association in order to be allowed to legally home school. THIS IS NOT TRUE!  NO HOME SCHOOL HAS TO PROVIDE ANY public school, ANY © association issued PAPERWORK, TO LEGALLY HOME SCHOOL UNDER
OPTION 3.

PRIVATE SCHOOLS DO NOT PROVIDE ANYTHING TO ANY SCHOOL DISTRICT or PUBLIC
SCHOOL ANYTIME, EVER, to LEGALLY PRIVATE SCHOOL.  They answer DIRECTLY to the
STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION!

3rd option (SC ST SEC 59-65-47) HOME SCHOOL ASSOCIATIONS REPORT THE NUMBER
OF STUDENTS IN EACH GRADE LEVEL to their respective PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICTS.
AT NO TIME ARE WE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE ANY PUBLIC SCHOOL OFFICIAL ANYTHING
ABOUT OUR MEMBERS FOR SAID MEMBERS TO LEGALLY HOME SCHOOL!  FURTHER, SAID
SCHOOL OR SCHOOL DISTRICT ARE TO LEGALLY REQUEST IN WRITING THEIR REQUEST To
said association.  ("Remember the long list of student names the districts used to mail out to associations demanding us to go down the list and let them know which student names were enrolled with us?!  I do!") We did not have to respond to that list at all. They couldn't do it then legally and they can not do it now!  For a list of the deadline dates that each county can perform their legal "

It was not the "attendance supervisor that is doing this.  The Dorchester District 2 Attendance office - in compliance with the below, DENIED sending ANYONE out on the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!

ARTICLE 3.

ATTENDANCE SUPERVISORS
SECTION 59-65-210. State appropriation for attendance supervisor program.

For each county which has indicated a desire for the service of an attendance supervisor or supervisors there shall be appropriated annually
for the ensuing fiscal year a sum sufficient to pay the salaries and expenses of an attendance supervisor or supervisors for each county, one
such supervisor for each ten thousand children, or fraction thereof, enrolled in each county as of the closing date of the school year immediately preceding the commencing of each such fiscal year. This sum shall be the State's portion of the attendance supervisor program. Nothing
in this article shall limit the number of attendance supervisors that a county or a school district may employ at its own expense.

SECTION 59-65-220. Election of attendance supervisors.

In each county desiring the services of an attendance supervisor, such supervisor shall, if his salary and expenses are to be paid by the State, be elected on or before July first of each year, or as soon thereafter as practicable, by the members of the county board of education whose terms of office run concurrently with or extend beyond the period of employment of
such supervisor.

SECTION 59-65-230. Certification of attendance supervisors by State Board of
Education.

Attendance supervisors shall be certified by the State Board of Education. Qualifications for the certification of attendance supervisors shall be
determined by the State Board of Education in the same manner as the Board now determines qualifications for all other teachers, provided, that such certification requirements shall not adversely affect attendance supervisors
who were employed prior to the passage of this article.

SECTION 59-65-240. Census of children not enrolled in public schools; list submitted to attendance supervisor.

Within thirty days after the opening date of each school year of each public school district in the State in which a public school is being operated, the trustees or other governing board thereof shall make or cause to be made a complete census of all children of school age therein, that is, between the years of seven and sixteen years, inclusive, who have not enrolled in such
school district or in some other district during the thirty-day enrollment period. The names, ages, places of residence and names of the parents or
guardians of such children of school age not enrolled shall be forthwith filed with the county superintendent of education, who shall thereupon consolidate all of such names of children in alphabetical order into one
list and certify the list to the attendance supervisor of the county.

SECTION 59-65-250. Cooperation between attendance supervisors and county and
district agencies and the like.

The county attendance supervisor whose salary shall be paid from State funds and such other attendance supervisors as may be employed by the county or school districts therein shall cooperate with the social and civic organizations and agencies of the county or district, as well as with the trustees of the several school districts in the county.

SECTION 59-65-260. Duties of attendance supervisor relating to nonattending children.

The attendance supervisor shall, upon receiving the list of nonattending children from the county superintendent of education, contact as rapidly as possible the parents or guardians of such nonattending children with the object in mind of interesting nonattending children in school work, and influencing them by means of persuasion to attend school regularly. All principals shall report to such attendance supervisor on continuous absences which appear to be unwarranted, and the attendance supervisor shall make an earnest effort to have enrolled and keep enrolled all children of school age in the county.

NBHSA SC and many other associations do not issue any paperwork, due to PUBLIC OFFICIALS violating and abusing the law.  This family "DID NOT" enroll said child in the public school system this year.  According to Alston Middle School, located in "Dorchester County", the school is going down a list, which displays the names of students that were enrolled in the school district "LAST YEAR" and did not enroll this year.

Although there is a law, which does allow school officials to make an attempt to "FIND" every child in their district, who are not enrolled in the
"PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM", the limitation is, "Within thirty days after the opening date of each school year of each public school district in the State in which a public school is being operated."  Please note: FIRST DAY OF ENROLLMENT of EACH SCHOOL.

I have no problem with this.  What I do have a problem with is A FULLY DRESSED UNIFORMED POLICE OFFICER IN HIS OFFICIAL POLICE CRUISER, going door to door on a "FISHING EXPEDITION,  which is not an official police
department dispatched call!  Nor is this officer a SCHOOL DISTRICT ATTENDANCE EMPLOYEE!  If he were, the School District Attendance office
would have known this person was sent out on an Attendance fishing expedition!  Please note the official statement from Dorchester District 2
office, "The District Attendance Office DID NOT send anyone out"!  A fishing expedition by the public school system, by a "volunteer" (EXACT WORDS FROM ALSTON MIDDLE SCHOOL) - resource officer, is not OFFICIAL POLICE DUTY,
according to our SOURCES.  If it is, I demand to see the official 911 office dispatch transcript or COURT ORDER, along with the POLICE REPORT, which makes this use of our TAX FUNDED DOLLARS,  a legal POLICE CALL.

Further, the DISTRICT ATTENDANCE OFFICE confirmed via the DORCHESTER DISTRICT 2 SCHOOL OFFICE, NO ONE WAS SENT OUT BY THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE (SCHOOL DISTRICT TRUANCY OFFICER) TODAY, the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!
Dorchester District 2's  compulsory attendance date does not allow anyone in this DISTRICT to possibly be in violation of SC compulsory attendance law prior to August 19, 2005.

My tax dollars are to be spent for official police duties, which fall under the law.  I have yet to learn of any "PRIVATE SCHOOL" being demanded by said officials, official documentation as to the proof of said enrollment with any private school.

WE ARE NOT AWARE OF ANY SC LAW THAT ALLOWS OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO USE OUR
OFFICIAL POLICE DUTY VEHICLES TO BE USED FOR SCHOOL FISHING EXPEDITIONS!  IF YOU KNOW OF A LAW THAT DOES< PLEASE SEND IT To NBHSA@SC.RR.COM ASAP!

IF ANY POLICE OFFICER OR SCHOOL OFFICIAL COMES TO YOUR DOOR< CALL THIS ASSOCIATION WHILE SAID OFFICIAL IS ON YOUR DOOR STEP.  (ESPECIALLY IF THEY SHOW UP IN POLICE UNIFORM AND OFFICIAL POLICE CAR, prior to any 10 day compulsory attendance has arrived, on behalf of any public school! ASK if SAID OFFICIAL IS AT YOUR DOOR AS AN ACTING ATTENDANCE SUPERVISOR PER THE ABOVE LISTED LAWS of SOUTH CAROLINA! We will once again call the District attendance office to confirm or deny that said party was indeed sent out by said Attendance office.

How about Hitler's mentality dream teams take the place of our service men and women in IRAQ and Afghanistan (US TROOPS SERVING UNDER THE UN AND NOT US as early as JANUARY 2006), with their children of 18 and above, both male and female, along with their own hides,  in the hot seat, (NOT SAFE ZONES or DESK JOBS) and let the FOREFATHER SACRIFICE APPRECIATING, US Constitution LOVING, US Patriot, and US SERVING SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN COME BACK TO PROTECT THE COUNTRY THEY ARE TO SERVE! THE USA! NOT THE UN!  We have no problem allowing the US FREEDOM GIVING AWAY POLITICIANS TRADING PLACES WITH OUR MEN AND WOMEN SERVING IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN!  Every official should have to do exactly what they mandate our US service members to do, every time they mandate it. (And we don't mean behind a desk either!)  Maybe then they will stop their hasty actions, only to find out it was all a lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can we pass this law through CONGRESS TODAY?   Any takers?  

For those claiming our service members knew this was is expected of them, once they joined the military:  They expected to serve the US, Not the UN, They expected to be told the TRUTH and to fight "LEGITIMATE CONFLICTS AND WARS, and they did not agree to help OVERTURN THE US CONSTITUTION.  They agreed to PROTECT< SERVE AND DEFEND THE UNITED STATES.  IRAQ Didn't DO ANYTHING TO THE US!  SAUDI NATIONALS DID!  So why aren't we fighting in SAUDI ARABIA?????????????????????????????????????

bulletMay 03, 2005 Dorchester County - St. George DMV

Alert: A NBHSA SC home school founding board member took her 15 year old son to get his first permit.  The St. George DMV office employee refused to allow the "15 year old" child, to obtain his first permit, due to the parents refusal to register him for the draft, prior to his "18th" birthday.  Instead of leaving the DMV office, said member called the Governors Office, Columbia DMV, and her attorneys.  The St. George DMV employee then allowed the "15 year old minor child" to take his first permit test, which he passed.  Upon leaving the DMV office, said member contacted the Governors Office again.  The Governors Office contacted the DMV office, and is working to clear up this "ongoing battle" with DMV offices state wide.  No DMV office have any right to deny a minor child a permit or license, based on a parents refusal to register their 13 - 17 year old minor child for the draft!  Since August of 2004, NBHSA has knowledge of over 250 public, private and home school cases, which DMV has mandated the parent to sign the "early draft registration form.  Seek your attorney ASAP, should this happen to you!  This is only an option, NOT A REQUIREMENT!  Should we go to war with IRAN, or any other Country, and the US Government invoke the draft,  legal clarification needs to be made in regard to the following subject: 1) If the draft is enforced, can the Government force minors, who's parent (s) have already registered with the SC DMV, to serve, prior to their 18th birthday, should the draft age be lowered to 17 years of age or younger? 

bulletApril 05, 2005 - Berkeley County DMV ALERT! 

NBHSA and CHASE SC once again assist another "non-member" home school family.  NBHSA SC was contacted on April 05, 2005 by a "non-member home school family, via CHASE SC home school association Director, whom was contacted by a home school family that belonged to another home school association.  Berkeley County DMV office refused to allow the home school family to use their current Income tax returns for their child's "Proof of Residency".   Three (3) Monks Corner, SC, DMV employees, demanded that the home school parent provide the DMV with their home school association membership information, in the form of association issued paperwork!  Said DMV made it very clear to the home school family, "Their  current Income tax returns for their child's "Proof of Residency", as provided by South Carolina DMV policy and regulations, was not going to be allowed as an accepted form of "proof of residency! "  Once NBHSA SC was contacted, we immediately called SC DMV office in Columbia, SC.  Ms. Wise of the SC DMV office in Columbia, SC, immediately contacted Berkeley County, Monks Corner, SC DMV office, and advised them of their own DMV requirements.  Further, Monks Corner DMV was informed they could not mandate this home school family to provide them with any of their home school association information, and they are required to accept said home school family "current Income tax returns for their child's "Proof of Residency", as provided by South Carolina DMV policy and regulations!"  Further, no home school can be required to fill out SC DMV form PDLA when applying for their first permit for a 15 year old.  If any SC DMV ever mandates any home school to provide them proof of their association  membership information, please follow the following information:  

1.) Print out a copy of SC DMV page http://www.scdmvonline.com/DLidentity.aspx and take with you to the DMV office; and

2.) Obtain the name (s) of every DMV official, whom is refusing to follow their own rules and regulations; and 

3.) Call 803-896-5000,  press 0 for live person, and let them know the situation, names of DMV and DMV official (S), whom refuse to follow SC DMV reg's / policy, ect.; and

4.) Call your attorney ASAP, if you can not get support from the Columbia, SC DMV office; and

5.) Call your association ASAP!

Due to the very high number of non-member issues, which NBHSA SC and CHASE SC are being contacted for help with, by home schools families, whom are members of other associations of lengthy existence, CHASE SC is seriously considering the option of opening up to new home schoolers.

February 08, 2005 - ALERT! Several school districts are calling associations for verification of home school members.  Even though the schools have obtained verification from the association, which the school contacted, they are demanding association issued paper work to main in their files, which they are not entitle to, and no association or home school  is required to have, to be considered a member of any association.  Associations and home schools do not receive any public school funds or tax dollars to operate.  SC ST SEC 59-65-47clearly states; By January thirtieth of each year, all associations shall report the number and grade level of children home schooled through the association to the children's respective school districts. The schools are not entitled to any student names, whom are members of any third option association! Further, SC ST SEC 59-65-47 clearly states; Bona fide membership and continuing compliance with the academic standards of the associations exempts the home school from the further requirements of Section 59-65-40 or Section 59-65-45.  All associations need to keep the school number, which is displayed on their caller id, for evidence of school contact.  Further, the association needs to keep a log of the officials name, date and time official called, and the member name that is being harassed.  This can be used in any bogus truancy charge, which any official brings against the home school, even though the school called said association and obtained verification over the phone. Also call your association attorneys immediately!  Seek your legal authority for legal response ASAP!

Contrary to some "OVER ZEALOUS" official statements, any HOME SCHOOL operating under South Carolina Code of Law §59-65-47 does not have to obtain permission from  their local school district to home school.  If "ANY" DSS or School official attempts to coerce or mandate this bogus request and/or demand any home school records, when you are not in the public school system and no court order has been issued, REFUSE To Do So and Call (843) 270-5180 - your association immediately.  NBHSA does record reviews for our members.  If you are a HSLDA member , PPL member or have a private attorney, call them immediately as well.  (Calabretta v. Floyd 189 F.3d (808 (9th Cir. 1999.) Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242 Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law (Acts under "color of any law" include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the bounds or limits of their lawful authority, but also acts done without and beyond the bounds of their lawful authority; provided that, in order for unlawful acts of any official to be done under "color of any law," the unlawful acts must be done while such official is purporting or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. This definition includes, in addition to law enforcement officials, individuals such as Mayors, Council persons, Judges, Nursing Home Proprietors, Security Guards, etc., persons who are bound by laws, statutes ordinances, or customs.

1.  Call (843) 270-5180 - your association immediately, and let us know that an official is at your door. If you are a HSLDA member , PPL member or have a private attorney, call them immediately and call your association immediately, letting us know that an official is at your door.

2.  Ask if the official has a search warrant.   If not, do not give
permission to allow anyone in! 
If a police officer states he/she is investigating an emergency situation, then they may enter without the search warrant.  Ask the police officer to state what the emergency situation is, which allows entry without the search
warrant.

PLACE A VIDEO CAMERA and/or TAPE RECORDER IN PLAIN VIEW - IN YOUR HOUSE.
RECORD ALL CONVERSATIONS AS EVIDENCE.  INFORM THE OFFICIAL YOU ARE
RECORDING.


3.  Be a good listener - it is better to listen than to volunteer
information.

4.  Ask questions - Why are you here?
     What is your name?
     What is your telephone number and extension?
     What is your badge number or  May I see your identification Id

5.   If an official with a police officer insist on coming into your house,
tell them nice and calmly - "I am closing the door, if it is not locked, you do not have my permission to come in.  If you open the door and come in, I have not allowed you.  You are doing so illegally; according to Calabretta v. Floyd, a Civil Rights Lawsuit, and I will seek legal action."
