Home Schooling


Parents wishing to home school their child(ren) must notify the local superintendent, in writing, that they have established a home school. Parents must report the names, ages, and place of residence of each child receiving instruction in the home school.


The school term in Kentucky is no fewer than 170 six-hour instructional days a year.  Students in a home school must receive the equivalent hours of instruction.


By law, all home schools are to keep attendance records and a portfolio containing samples of each student's best work. This record may be used to document the existence of the home school or if the child transfers to a different educational setting. A record of courses taken and grades received is also required.

For details on Kentucky laws regarding homeschools please refer to the Kentucky Homeschool Information Packet​. or contact the Kentucky Department of Education at (502) 564-3791.
