I wrote this article to offer good advice based on my successful experience, but I’m not a lawyer, so contact one if need be, but don’t worry, sending in this letter is no big deal.

In some states your are required to submit a letter of intent to home school. Above you will find a sample letter you can use as a starting point for your letter.

Just be sure to change the names and address.

Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states.
As parents you have the legal right to home school, you don’t need permission.
When dealing with the government just be polite, yet firm.
When you home school, the parent(s) are the principle. So your diploma will say, “Smith Family Homeschool”, for example.

A few notes on the letter:
I keep it short and sweet. When dealing with the government less is more.

If you have any questions please contact us anytime.

Happy Homeschooling!
