Homeschool is an option for parents who wish to educate their children at home.
Once a child is registered for homeschool, it is the parent's responsibility to obtain materials and curriculum appropriate for the age and level of skill of the child as determined by the parent. Please be advised that public online schools (North Star Academy, Nevada Virtual Academy, Nevada Connections, etc.) are not considered homeschool.
Please follow the steps below to register for homeschool:
- Complete a Notice of Intent to Homeschool for each child.
- Attach an educational plan as outlined in the Notice of Intent to Homeschool.
- Submit the Notice of Intent to Homeschool and attached educational plan to Extended Studies either by mail or in office (5450 Riggins Court Suite 5, Reno, NV 89502)
Upon successful completion of the Notice of Intent to Homeschool
, you will be given a packet containing a Receipt of Notice of Intent to Homeschool and valuable information.
