Home School

Home School

From time to time, for a variety of academic and non-academic reasons, parents believe that their children would achieve at a higher level if they were taught by the parents at home, or home-schooled. While professional educators believe that home-schooling a child is an overwhelming undertaking and urge caution in deciding about their children's education, people who proceed with home schooling need information and assistance to become knowledgeable about what requirements, legal and otherwise, pertain to the establishment and daily operation of a home school.

***STUDENTS WHO ARE IDENTIFIED AS "HOME SCHOOL" MUST PROVIDE DOCUMENTATION TO THE DISTRICT DPP WITHIN THE 1ST 2 WEEKS OF SCHOOL.
