Notice of Intent to Homeschool

Notice of Intent to Participate

HELPFUL TIPS regarding submission of the NOI:

  1.  School Districts are not allowed to ask for information that is not required by law, such as why you are choosing to homeschool, etc.
  2. We encourage families to MAIL IN the NOI via the US Postal Service to the SCHOOL DISTRICT in which the child lives (do not mail the NOI to NHN). Please mail your NOI to the school district using a return receipt request (USPS Form 3811).
  3. Your burden is to show that you have fulfilled your requirement to notify the school district that you are homeschooling your child. The USPS Return Receipt card, attached to a copy of the NOI and Educational Plan you mailed in, satisfies this burden.
  4. You do not NEED the school district’s letter of exemption to homeschool but the school district is required by law to send you one. All you NEED to be legally homeschooling is to show is proof that you followed the law by filing the NOI/Education Plan with the school district.

By filing via mail it reduces the misinformation/miscommunication that can and does happen when school district staff are not designated solely for homeschooling. The staff is not always knowledgeable about the homeschooling laws, and are certainly NOT in the position to guide you in your endeavor to direct the education of your children via homeschooling. Please look to your local support groups , or NHN, for guidance on homeschooling issues.

Educational Plan

REMEMBER, you DO need to attach an Educational Plan for the child, appropriate for the age and level of skill of the child as determined by the parent, in the subject areas of:

  • English: including reading, composition and writing
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies: including history, geography, economics, and government

The parent is not required to ensure that every subject is taught each year that the child is homeschooled. Your Education Plan may be a brief description of course work to be pursued the year you are first filing (“scope and sequence”) and/or a list of curriculum materials to be used to teach the subjects appropriate for the student, as determined by YOU, the parent.  An educational plan that meets these requirements must not be used in any manner as a basis for denial of a notice of intent to homeschool that is otherwise complete.
