Welcome Home School Parents

If you wish to instruct your child at home, this website will provide you with current information on homeschooling – including the required forms and other valuable parent resources.

We have created the forms/information below to help you through the Homeschooling process. As always, you are welcome to use these forms, but are not required to do so. Please reference the NYSED Regulations on Homeschooling for reporting requirements. It is our goal to be of service to our homeschool community. Please call our office if you would like to talk to us directly.

Letters and forms may be submitted by mail to
