Restore the Fremont Homeschool Participation Policy
Watch a quick seven-minute video by clicking THIS LINK. It explains how the Fremont homeschool participation policy affects our family, our school, and our community.
The original Fremont homeschool participation policy (enacted in 2013) only required one class on campus every day. Since Fremont is on a block schedule, this is still twice as much as is required by the IHSAA.
The new policy (enacted by Fremont in 2017) requires two classes on campus every day, which is now four times as much as is required by the IHSAA.
All of the local schools that allow homeschool participation (Central Noble, Churubusco, Dekalb, Hamilton, Lakeland, Prairie Heights...) follow the IHSAA guidelines and require only one class on campus, so Fremont's policy is also four times as much as any local school.
Every homeschooled student that participated under the 2013 policy 1) excelled in their Fremont coursework, 2) was a positive presence in the classroom, 3) represented Fremont with honor and distinction both on the athletic field and in the community, and 4) helped make Fremont's sports teams more competitive. No homeschooled student has been able to participate at Fremont under the new policy. Their presence is missed by their teachers, by their classmates, by their teammates, and by the overall Fremont community.
We ask the school board of Fremont Community Schools to restore the homeschool participation policy to the 2013 form.
