The original "Model Hatch Amendment Leer," crafted by Senator Orrin Hatch (R. Utah). The Hatch Amendment is a tool to uphold parental rights. This letter has the ability to ensure that the school contacts you prior to any activity that calls into question your family values. Parents have the right to be assured that the schools do not unknowingly or knowingly impair or weaken the student's beliefs, moral values and belief systems within his or her family unit. By filing this simple letter you retain power and protect your child within the public education system.
