Officially Withdraw Your Child
If your child already attends a Maine public school and you would like to begin educating them at home then you must notify the school that you will be withdrawing your child.
Follow these 3 steps to withdraw your child and begin educating them at home:
- Copy and paste the sample Maine Withdrawal 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.
