Homeschooling in District of Columbia


districtofcolumbiaHome school parents in the District of Columbia “must have a high school diploma or its equivalent.”  If the parent/teacher does not hold a high school diploma, they have the option of providing evidence of their ability to provide “a thorough, regular education” to the Office of the State Superintendent of Education.  The District of Columbia describes homeschooling as “an education program conducted,” in compliance with relevant education laws, “by the parent or legal guardian.”  The District requires that anyone wanting to create a home school must file a “Notification of Intent to Home School,” on an official form developed by the District of Columbia’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education.
