Arizona Homeschool Summary
If you are homeschooling in the state of Arizona, you will need to follow these steps:
- File a notarized affidavit. The parent or guardian must file a notarized affidavit of intent to operate a homeschool program with the county school superintendent within 30 days after homeschooling begins. It must include the child’s name; date of birth; current address; and the names, telephone numbers, and addresses of the persons who currently have custody of the child.
- Give proof of child’s identity. The parent or guardian must also provide the county school superintendent either a “certified copy of the child’s birth certificate” or “other reliable proof of the child’s identity and age with an affidavit explaining the inability to provide a copy of the birth certificate.”
