Enroll / Register with Home Education

Parent-Directed Education Alternative

Home Education allows the freedom to explore and learn at the pace of the individual student. Parents who provide instruction to their children at home are requested to read carefully and comply with all of the state statutes and regulations governing the operations of a Home Education Program. Home Education, as defined by Florida’s law, is “sequentially progressive instruction of a student directed by his or her parent in order to satisfy the attendance requirements of 1002.41, 1003.01(13), and 1003.21(1).”

Enrollment Procedure

  1. Complete and return the NOTICE OF INTENT via one of the following methods:
  1. CALL the current school of enrollment and formally withdraw your student. You will need to ask the school how to complete that school's withdrawal paperwork AND return all public or private school property (ie Chromebook, textbooks, library books, JROTC uniform, etc).

  2. Within 30 days of establishing your program, finalize your curriculum provider, and actively direct your student's education.

  3. Maintain your parent-created portfolio.

  4. If your student has a history of truancy, plan to participate in a Portfolio Review with the Home Education Department approximately 30 days following the establishment of your program. This meeting will be held in an online format. Invitations will be sent via email.
