REQUIREMENTS TO HOME SCHOOL
Parents should start by notifying the superintendent of the school district where they reside about their intent to home school their child/or children. Here are the responsibilities of the district superintendent when families home school their children.
Parents agree to:
- Provide 900 hours of instruction per year;
- Notify the superintendent every year; and
- Provide an assessment of the students work, this link will provide the O.R.C. requirement.
Many parents think that online schools fall into the category of home schooling, this is NOT true. In Ohio, some online schools are considered community/chartered public schools. If the online school is out of state and you have to pay tuition, or for the curriculum, you must register as being home schooled with your resident district superintendent, this is still considered home schooling.
