Florida statutes require that children between the ages of six and sixteen must be enrolled in school and attend classes. To fulfill this requirement, students must attend one of the following: public school, parochial school, private school, a home education program, or a private tutoring program. Florida homeschooling options include attending a non-campus-based private school; starting a home school program; or setting up a private tutoring program. Parents who wish to start a home school program must file a Notice of Intent to home school with their local school superintendent. Florida also requires that all home education students are “subject to oversight by school district employees,” and home school parents must be willing to provide any and all records and student work samples requested by their local Superintendent of Schools.
