Notice of Intent to homeschool your child
Notice of Intention to Instruct at Home
Parents must annually provide written notice to the superintendent of schools, of their school district of residence, of their intent to educate their child at home. Contact your school district to find out if there is a required form. If the district does not require a specific form, you can simply put in writing that you are withdrawing your child from school for homeschooling.
Parents who withdraw their child from school during the school year are required to provide written notice of their intention to educate their child at home within 14 days following the commencement of home instruction within the school district. The school district has 10 days, from receipt of the notice of intention, to send parents a copy of section 100.10 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, along with a IHIP (Individualized Home Instruction Plan) form for each child to be homeschooled.
Note:Some school districts require parents to receive approval of their IHIP before pulling their child out of public school. It is wise to talk to the school district about this ahead of time in order to avoid miscommunications or complaints of educational neglect.
