PARENTS
Home school families should file one Notice of Intent and Waiver form per family. Also, families must file a legible form with the superintendent’s office of the school district in which the family resides, a Notice of Intent to Home School and Waiver. These forms must be filed on a yearly basis.

PARENTS/LEGAL GUARDIANS MUST COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ON THE NOTICE OF INTENT TO HOME SCHOOL FORM:

  • The name, date of birth, and grade level of each child and the name of the public, private, home school or parochial school last attended, if any, for each student
  • The location of the home school (parent’s address/mailing address)
  • A brief description of the basic core curriculum to be used and the subjects to be taught
  • Schedule of instruction to be followed (hours per day; days per week; number of weeks)
  • The education qualifications of the parent/legal guardian
  • Parent/legal guardian must sign and date the Notice of Intent to Home School form
  • Parent/legal guardian must complete and sign the Waiver form

Home school parents that file after the school year has started may not backdate the Notice of Intent to Home School form.

In the past, school districts have accepted incomplete home school forms from parents/legal guardians. Required information is frequently missing regarding curriculum and class schedule. School districts have an obligation to ensure that the required information is included on the forms. Incomplete forms submitted by parents/legal guardians do not meet the requirements of state law; districts shall not accept incomplete forms.
