College Admissions for Kansas Homeschoolers

Re: House Bill 2197

News for homeschoolers who are residents of the state of Kansas.

The Kansas regents schools had announced a year or so ago that they were going to automatically take as many homeschoolers as they could who had at least a 21 on the ACT. They were doing this under their 10% exceptions window. This bill, if passed, would guarantee admission to those homeschoolers with a 21 on the ACT and would still leave the 10% exceptions window available for admission of others (homeschoolers or not) who don't meet any of the criteria for automatic admission.

This bill passed on 2/20/2009.

Thanks, Shelley, for the clarification on the intent of this bill.
