Home School & Part-Time Enrollment
Each parent whose child is receiving home-based instruction must file a Declaration of Intent to Home School by September 15 of the school year.
Home-based instruction students are permitted to enroll as a part-time student up to the following amounts of time:
- Kindergarten: Less than 10 hours per week
- Grades 1-3: Less than 20 hours per week
- Grades 4-5: Less than 25 hours per week

Part-time students are permitted to enroll and receive ancillary services, provided that such students are otherwise eligible for full-time enrollment in the school district and such courses or services are not available in the student’s private school or an approved extension. Part-time status also includes any student, not enrolled in a private school, who is receiving home-based instruction and taking courses at or receiving ancillary services from the district or both, or any student involved in an approved work training program.
Ancillary service is defined to include counseling, testing, remedial instruction, communication disorders services, physical and occupational therapy, health services, psychological services, tutorial services such as home instruction for the physically disabled and sports activities.
Parents must request the instruction or services by filling out the Request for Part-time Enrollment Form each school year.
