9270 - EQUIVALENT EDUCATION OUTSIDE THE SCHOOLS(HOME SCHOOLING)
The Board of Education encourages the enrollment of all school age children resident in this District in public schools or in approved parochial or private schools so that they may enjoy the benefits of a well-planned educational program and the socialization possible in a group environment.
The Board recognizes its responsibility for assuring that every resident school-age child is enrolled in an approved school or is offered an equivalent education elsewhere and designates the Superintendent to act in its behalf.
A parent electing to home educate a child shall provide the Superintendent with annual written notification. The notification must include certain specific information and assurances concerning the home education program as set forth in State law, the State Department of Education Regulations, and AG 9270.
The Superintendent will excuse the child from attendance for home education purposes upon satisfactory showing that the child is being home educated by a person qualified to teach the branches in which instruction is required as referenced in AG 9270, and such additional branches, as the advancement and needs of the child may, in the opinion of the Superintendent, require.
The ESC Superintendent shall provide administrative guidelines that ensure that, prior to a child being excused from attendance for home education purposes, all requirements specified in the State Department of Education regulations and the conditions established in Policy 5463 - Credits from State-Chartered, Special, and Nonchartered Schools have been met.
The Superintendent may allow a student who is being educated at home or at a nondistrict school to participate in one or more of the District's co-curricular or extra-curricular activities providing s/he meets the eligibility criteria established for an activity.
