Home Education/Home Schooling

Home Education / Home Schooling


When parents choose to educate their children at home, they must be excused by the superintendent from attending the public schools in the district. The department is responsible for assuring that applicants are aware of existing laws that must be followed in order for a parent or guardian to be able to educate his or her child at home. In addition, the department is responsible for making certain that an annual assessment of the child's progress takes place before the child can be approved for home schooling in subsequent years.
