Notify the School District of Your Decision To Homeschool

If you have decided to homeschool your child then you must send a letter of intent to the school district notifying them of your decision. This letter must be sent 14 days prior to beginning homeschool and every year that you choose to homeschool.

Follow these steps to fill out and send a letter of intent.
