Home schooling is an alternative option to public or traditional private school attendance.
A parent may choose to home school their child at any time during the school year. However, the parent should notify the School District in which the family resides as soon as they decide to home school or within 15 days. There are required steps that will be taken to register a home school with the School District.
SoWashCo Schools cannot provide curriculum, transcripts or diplomas for home school students. Please keep in mind that the information contained on this webpage may change throughout the school year as contingencies arise.
