Legal Option: Provide private instruction not affiliated with an educational institution
Attendance: During the period that the public schools are in session
Subjects: Language Arts, Mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, health, and physical education
Qualifications: High school diploma or equivalent.  *A parent or guardian without a high school diploma or its equivalent may petition the OSSE for a waiver by providing evidence of the petitioner’s ability to provide thorough, regular education.
Notice: File a written notification on an official form provided by the OSSE.  The form must be filed annually by August 15. Upon discontinuation of a homeschool program parents or guardians are expected to notify the OSSE 15 days prior to the discontinuation of homeschooling.

Testing: Homeschooled students are eligible to participate in public school sponsored testing in their resident district without charge.
