In Ohio, parents interested in educating their children at home may do so by notifying their local school District superintendents and meeting the requirements of Ohio law to home school. If requirements are met, the District Superintendent releases the student from required compulsory school attendance. This excuses the student and family from school attendacne requirements in state law.
Parents or guardians who decide to home school their students are completely responsible for choosing the curriculum and course of study. They select the curriculum and educational materials and take responsibility for educating their children. There is no state financial assistance for families who choose this option.
If a home school student returns to a public school, the District Superintendent determines the appropriate grade level for the student.
Parents agree to:
1. Provide 900 hours of instruction per year;
2. Notify the Superintendent every year; and
3. Provide an assessment of the students work, this link
