Notice of intent to homeschool your child
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. This is simply a written statement that you are withdrawing your child from school for homeschooling. Please note that in NYS, the homeschooling school year begins July 1st and ends June 30th. Although the homeschool regulations give the date of July 1st for sending the notice of intent, a parent may withdraw their child for homeschooling at any time prior or during the school year.
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 and a form to complete the IHIP (Please note that this is not a state-required form. Each school has their own form that they have created for parent convenience. You can use any form you want for the IHIP as long as you include the required information.)
