Homeschooling in Louisiana


louisiana-300x199Louisiana home school parents have the option of either creating a “home study” program approved by the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (SBESE), or operating as a home-based private school.  Louisiana’s approach to homeschooling is explained in Section 17:4025 of the Revised Statutes as being “solely for the purposes of compulsory attendance in a nonpublic school, a child who participates in a home study program approved by the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education shall be considered in attendance at a day school; a home study program shall be approved if it offers a sustained curriculum of a quality at least equal to that offered by public schools at the same grade level.”
