Home Based Schooling
Families may, for a variety of reasons, elect to educate their children at home, on a home based program. Students who are in a home based program must be registered at the division office.
There are several annual requirements to be enrolled in a home school program for each student. Required documents and guides are provided in the documents section below.
If a student wishes to return to the public school system after being home- schooled parents are required to provide the school with a copy of the student's summative record for each school year or part of a school year that the student was a home-based learner.
Home-based education students who are nearing high school age should pay close attention to regulations concerning early level credits, available below.
Parents who are contemplating a home based program are encouraged to contact the Home Schooling Liaison, Carmen Ostrander. Once a decision is made to home school, in addition to registering their child as a home-based education student, parents must inform the school they are leaving so the school can plan accordingly.
