Officially Withdraw Your Child
If your child attends a Louisiana public school and you would like to begin educating them at home, operating as a private school, you must officially withdraw your child. An Enrollment Notification Letter notifies the school that you will be “transferring” your child to your new non-public school. This letter must be sent within 10 days of registering your school through the Department of Education.
NOTE: This Enrollment Notification letter is for non-public (private) schools only. If you are using a home study program then you must withdraw your child using this withdrawal letter.
Follow these simple steps to withdraw your child and begin educating them at home.
- Copy and paste the sample Louisiana Enrollment Notification Letter below in a new document to print.
- Enter your personal information in the brackets and print 2 copies (one for the school and one for your records).
- Mail a signed copy of your letter by certified mail to the school.
- Do this for each child that you will be withdrawing from public school; the school will need one for each child’s individual record.
