You get a solid C on your follow up letter @TCPS_MD. You failed to address your writing purpose. By not specifically id'ing your letter as providing corrected info, readers may be left wondering what are the impt points they should focus on. Remember to spell check in the future. https://t.co/xRgNkBL1Kg

Library Skills, Comp Science, Tech Ed, & Research Skills, while all worthy subjects, cannot be required of families by @CarolineCoPS. @MdPublicSchools is pretty clear about this. https://t.co/ffz291ki5n
I know Talbot Co has never even had 200 homeschool children a year, so maybe your county review process is a little rusty - but your letter to new Maryland #homeschool families is a gross overreach of authority. You need to issue an immediate apology and update your procedures.
In 2017 I filed a FERPA complaint with @usedgov. Today I received a phone call letting me know they are still reviewing the matter and should have a finding soon, even though they have not yet subpoenaed records.
