Homeschooling, also known as home education or home instruction, is the education of children inside the home. Homeschooling is usually conducted by a parent/guardian, tutor(s), and/or education management organizations.

If you are interested in homeschooling your child(ren), please review the information and resources on this page or contact the Office Of Pupil Personnel Services. 

In order to begin the Homeschooling process, you must notify the District with a detailed written statement, also known as, the Letter of Intent or Notice of Intention to Homeschool for each child you intend to homeschool. 

Letter of Intent/Notice of Intention to Homeschool

- This is a letter from the parent/guardian stating that their child(ren) will be homeschooled. In this letter please include the following information in order for the District to respond and send appropriate paperwork:

  • Child(ren)'s full name.
  • Child(ren)'s date of birth.
  • Child(ren)'s grade level.
  • School District in which the child(ren) resides in.
  • Intended start and end dates for the homeschooling year.
  • Parent's full names and contact information (address and phone number).
  • Child(ren)'s address if different than parent/guardian.
  • Name of person providing the home instruction and their contact information (address and phone number).
  • Signature and date of parent/guardian.

Following the notification to the District that you plan to homeschool your child(ren), an Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP) must be submitted within 4 weeks.

 Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP)

This is a detailed document that parents/guardians must submit for each child who will be homeschooled. The IHIP will indicate what curriculum, by subject, the child(ren) will be taught. 

Quarterly Reports

- Parents/guardians are required to submit quarterly reports based on the dates they provide in their Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP). The grade-specific quarterly reports must include the total number of hours of instruction provided, a description of the material covered in each subject, and an evaluation in each subject or a written narrative evaluating the child's progress.
