The purpose of the Home Education Program is to permit parents to comply with the compulsory school attendance law while teaching their children at home. For the purpose of this document, "parent" refers to the parent or guardian.

Requirements of the Home Education Program are outlined in Florida Statutes and are provided in this packet. Please keep this information with your important papers as it will be a valuable reference for you in the coming months.

To establish a Home Education Program, a parent must provide written notice to the district school Superintendent of intent to establish and maintain a Home Education Program. The Home Education Program applies only to students ages six through sixteen. Information regarding Kindergarten is included in the packet.

The parent who assumes responsibility for educating a child at home also assumes the responsibility for providing curriculum, educational materials, and evaluations necessary to determine student progress. The school system does not supply textbooks, curriculum guides, or educational standards for the home-educated student.
