Home Schooling

Notification

Parents wishing to home school their child(ren) must notify the local superintendent, in writing, that they have established a home school. Parents must report the names, ages, and place of residence of each child receiving instruction in the home school.

Requirements:

The school term in Kentucky is no fewer than 170 six-hour instructional days a year.  Students in a home school must receive the equivalent hours of instruction.

Records:

By law, all home schools are to keep attendance records and a portfolio containing samples of each student's best work. This record may be used to document the existence of the home school or if the child transfers to a different educational setting. A record of courses taken and grades received is also required.

For details on Kentucky laws regarding homeschools please refer to the Kentucky Homeschool Information Packet​. or contact the Kentucky Department of Education at (502) 564-3791.
