Nevada Homeschool Summary
If you are homeschooling in the state of Nevada, you will need to follow these steps:
- File a written notice of intent to homeschool to the superintendent of your school district. The Nevada Department of Education provides each district with a form for the parent to use.
- The notice of intent to homeschool must be filed before beginning to homeschool a child age 7 or older, or within 10 days after withdrawal from public school, or within 30 days of establishing state residency.
- There is no need to file your intent to homeschool on an annual basis, but if you or your child changes residency, then you must file another intent with the school district.
- Prepare an educational plan of instruction to be filed with the notice of intent.
- Included in this plan must be English; Mathematics; Science; and Social Studies, including History, Geography, Economics and Government. The level of each of these subjects may be appropriate for the age and level of skill of the child, as determined by the parent.
