The Seneca Nation Council is offering a second 30-day written public comment period for interested members to review the SENECA NATION HOMESCHOOL POLICY, which has been proposed for adoption.
This Policy would establish a Nation Homeschool Program for Seneca parents seeking to homeschool their Seneca child or children. The Nation Homeschool Program will establish a Nation Homeschool Coordinator who will oversee implementation of the Policy and coordinate with Seneca parents. Parents are wholly responsible for ensuring all requirements of the Policy are met each semester, including filing with the Nation Homeschool Coordinator: a notice of intent to homeschool, a homeschool plan for instruction, quarterly reports, and annual assessments. All documents provided by parents must meet the minimum requirements of the Nation Homeschool Policy.
Printed copies of the Seneca Nation Homeschool Policy are available at either of the Seneca Nation Clerk’s Offices and on the Seneca Nation website at sni.org. For Allegany residents, please send written comments to Bethany Johnson at BJohnson@sni.org. For Cattaraugus residents, please send written comments to Geraldine Huff at Geraldine.Huff@sni.org. Comments must be received by 4:00pm, Friday, April 23, 2021.
