Homeschooling in Iowa


iowaAs of 2013, Iowa Code includes two homeschooling options: Independent Private Instruction (IPI) and Competent Private Instruction (CPI).  IPI allows home school parents or teachers to instruct “up to four” unrelated students in addition to children in the family.  The IPI path does not require parents to notify education officials or school district of their intention to home school but if the school superintendent requests information about the home school or its students, the homeschool must provide a report.  The second path, referred to as Competent Private Instruction (CPI), includes the option to operate “by or under the supervision of a licensed practitioner” or with a “non-licensed person.”
