Kentucky Withdrawal Letter

Officially Withdraw Your Child

If your child already attends a Kentucky public school and you would like to begin educating them at home then you must notify the school that you will be “transferring” your child. Remember homeschool is not officially recognized in the state of Kentucky.

Follow these simple steps to withdraw your child and begin educating them at home.

  1. Copy and paste the sample Kentucky Withdrawal Letter below in a new document to print.
  2. Enter your personal information in the brackets and print 2 copies (one for the school and one for your records).
  3. Mail a signed copy of your letter by certified mail to the school.
