Procedures in Initiating Homeschooling
Parents/ who wish to homeschool their child[ren ] should contact their school principal and subsequently reserve an appointment with him/her to conduct further discussion.
During the meeting parents/guardians should provide the principal and any other school authorities with the reason[s] for considering homeschooling as an option.
The final decision is to be made by the parent[s] /guardian[s] of the child[ren].
Parental figures who decide to homeschool their children should write a letter of intent to the principal of the school.Upon the arrival of the letter of intent , the principal will act accordingly by fowarding the notice directing the parental figures to the superintendent or designated figure of authority at the board of education .The figure of authority will consider the request and indicate the final decision to the parental figures which will be copied to the principal.In most scenarios the request is approved and upon arrival of acceptance the parental figures may begin to homeschool.[Requests may only be denied on the basis of reasonable grounds; student's poor attendance history, third party complaint with regards insufficent instruction, invalid reason provided for homeschooling and e.t.c] Similarly the principal of the school should remove the child from the school’s register.Parent[s]/guardians who wish to continue homeschooling their children in subsequent school years should construct and send a letter of intent to the appropriate designate by the beginning of the school year in which the child is to be homeschooled.
Students who have not been enrolled in the school system may begin homeschooling once a letter of intent for homeschooling is provided to the appropriate figure of authority and an approval is received in response to the letter.
Parental figures who do not receive a response to their letter of intent within one week’s time should consult the appropriate designate at the school board.
