A letter of intent must be submitted to the Superintendent by July 1 (or August 1 for the 2020-2021 school year), or within 14 days of commencing home instruction. New residents may submit at the time of residency in the district.

The District will notify families upon receipt of intent to provide home instruction. Families will then have four weeks to submit their Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP).

Quarterly reports and an annual evaluation must be submitted to the District as noted in the IHIP.
