All homeschools are classified as Non-Accredited Private Schools in Kansas and must follow the regulations set forth by law. Kansas does not specifically authorize “home instruction” or “homeschooling” by state statute. However, Kansas does recognize Non-Accredited Private Schools. There is no fee charged to register a non-accredited private school. A non-accredited elementary or secondary private school is one that satisfies the state’s compulsory school attendance laws, but which is not accredited by the State Board of Education.
Compulsory school attendance laws apply to children who have reached the age of 7 and those who are under 18 years of age (may be under 7 for children identified as handicapped). Every parent or guardian of children in that age group must require such children to attend a public, private, denominational, or parochial school for the duration of the school term.
