Home Education

Our commitment to providing diverse educational options extends to supporting families who choose to embark on the home education (previously called homeschooling) journey. Recognizing the importance of flexibility and personalized learning, we are pleased to offer resources and assistance for parents navigating the homeschooling landscape. In Ohio, homeschooling is a recognized and viable educational option, sanctioned by the Department of Education. 

To provide home education to a child, a parent must do the following: 

  • Provide instruction in English language arts, math, science, history, government, and social studies

  • Notify superintendent within 5 days after starting home education, then by August 30th of each year thereafter

  • The notice must include:

    • The parent’s name and address;

    • The child’s name; and

    • An assurance that the child will receive education in the subject areas stated above.

Families that would like to participate in homeschooling must provide their notice of intent (NOI) to the superintendent within five calendar days after commencing home education, moving into a new school district, or withdrawing from a public or nonpublic school, and by the thirtieth day of August each year thereafter.

If you are currently homeschooling your child and would like to participate in Ohio State Testing (grades 3-12), please contact the curriculum office at (440) 353-1111 to learn about testing dates and options.
