Idaho Code, Section 33-202 refers to home schools as “nonpublic” schools and defines a “nonpublic” student as “any student who received educational instruction outside of a public school classroom and can include, but is not limited to, a private school or a homeschool.” Since 2009, Idaho has allowed home school parents the option of hiring tutors or private instructors to home school their children. Idaho home school regulations do not require registration, reporting or compulsory testing for homeschool students. Idaho statutes do not indicate how many hours each day or days per year a home school student must be in the classroom. Idaho parents are totally responsible for the design of their own children’s education program.
