Kentucky Letter Of Intent

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 your school district superintendent notifying them of your decision. This letter must be sent preferably 10 days before school begins and no later than two (2) weeks after the beginning of the public school year. It is acceptable to send the letter later in the school year if you start to homeschool mid-year, or if you move into the area midterm; in either case, you must be prompt.

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

  1. Copy and paste the sample Kentucky Letter of Intent below into a new document.
  2. Fill in the brackets with your personal information.
  3. Print 2 copies (one for the superintendent and one for your records).
  4. Mail a signed copy of your letter to the superintendent by certified mail.
