Homeschooling in South Carolina

southcarolinaSouth Carolina education laws require that a “District Board of Trustees shall approve home schooling programs” that meet a set of standards.  The standards state that a home school parent must hold at least a high school diploma or a GED or a basic college degree and must agree in writing to the school district that they will “hold the [district] harmless for any educational deficiencies of the student sustained as a result of home instruction.”    Parents can teach their children at home in a non-district-approved home school “if the instruction is conducted under the auspices of an association for home schools which has no fewer than 50 members” and meets requirements set out by the State Department of Education.
