Gaining an excuse for home schooling

  • Ohio Law requires a home-educating parent to submit an annual notification to home educate their child(ren) to the superintendent of the district in which they reside. Once the annual notification is submitted to the District, the superintendent or his/her designee are required to review the notification and respond to the parent in writing within 14 calendar days.

  • The written response from the district will take one of two forms:

    1. An excusal letter signed by the superintendent that excuses the student(s) to home education.

    2. A letter requesting information that was not provided with the original notification letter.
