Student Services - Home Schooling
Home schooling is deregulated in the state of Colorado, therefore, parents take on all of the responsibility for your student's education including acquisition of books, supplies, tests, and maintaining permanent records.
A parent who intends to establish a nonpublic home-based education program is required to:
- Provide written notification of the program to a school district within the state when the child is six years of age;
- Establish the program when the child seven years of age; and
- Continue the program and provide the notification until the child is sixteen years of age.
How do I get started, what do I do first?
You must provide a 14-day written notification explaining your intent to home school to SVVSD Student Services office (for each child) and do so each year thereafter for each year the program is maintained. This notification is required in order to avoid truancy action. The notification must list the child's name, age, place of residence and number of hours of attendance of each child enrolled.
For more information or to notify the school district of your desire to home school your child, please contact Linda Lohmann, Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent of Schools (303-682-7205).
