• Home Education  

    Home Education is a parent-directed education alternative.  This option allows the student freedom to explore and learn at his/her individual pace.  Parents who provide instruction to their children at home are requested to read carefully and comply with all of the state statutes and regulations governing the operation of a Home Education Program.
    Home Education is defined by Florida Statutes as "sequentially progressive instruction of a student directed by his or her parent in order to satisfy the attendance requirements of SS.  1002.41, 1003.01 (4), and 1003.21 (1)."  The law requires the custodial parent(s)/guardian(s) of home education students to:
    • Submit Notice of Intent to Establish a Home Education Program Form within 30 days of the start date.
    • Maintain Parent Report of Home School Grades 
    • Adhere to the Annual Evaluation Checklist 
    • Submit Notice of Intent to Terminate a Home Education Program when returning to public school.


    Once your child has been accepted into the Home Education program, you are free to choose the curriculum of your child.
