The Home School Office exists to promote collaboration between home school families, public schools, and the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The primary responsibility of the Home School Office is to provide information and technical assistance on laws and regulations governing home schools to all interested persons. Additionally, it is the responsibility of the Home School Office to modify, update and disseminate the Notice of Intent to Home School to all school districts before the current school year begins. Parents/guardians are required to file current-year forms with their local school district superintendent’s office on an annual basis according to state law.
The Home School Office receives home school student data from all public school districts in the state. This information may be used only for statistical purposes and test administration. The office compiles and publishes a Home School Report annually that provides enrollment statistics for the previous school year.
The Home School Office considers it a privilege to be of assistance to home school parents, school districts, and the general public. For additional information, please reference the resources and documents on the side of this page or contact the Home School Office. The office is open during normal business hours Monday through Friday.
