OH How to get started

1. Is homeschooling legal? 

Yes. In July 1989, the Ohio State Board of Education adopted Rules for Excuses from Compulsory Attendance for Home Education. These rules are contained in Chapter 3301-34 of the Administrative Code and were distributed to all school superintendents.

2. Who may homeschool? 

The parent/guardian is primarily responsible for homeschooling the child, but may delegate teaching, or some portion the teaching, to a grandparent, tutor, friend, etc. The parent is fully responsible for the education of the child. To teach your children you  have to have a high school diploma or its equivalency. If you do not have this, there is a provision that allows you to home educate under someone else’s directio

3. Should I provide more information than is requested?

It is not recommended to provide the school with any more information other than required by law. Remember, you are notifying the district; not asking for permission.
