Home Schools Notice of Intent
The Home School Office was established in October 1999 to promote collaboration between home school parents, public schools and the Arkansas Department of Education.
The primary responsibility of the Home School Office is to provide information and technical assistance on laws and regulations governing home schools to all interested persons.
Additionally, it is the responsibility of the Home School Office to modify, update and disseminate the Notice of Intent to Home School and Waiver Forms to all school districts before the current school year begins. Parents/guardians are required to file current year pre-printed forms or electronic submission with their local school district superintendent’s office on an annual basis according to state law.
The Home School Office receives home school student data from all 236 school districts. This information may be used only for statistical purposes and test administration. The office compiles and publishes a Home School Report in September of each year that provides enrollment statistics for the previous year.
It is our hope that the information contained herein will assist parents/guardians in meeting the requirements of the home school law and regulations.
The Home School Office considers it a privilege to be of assistance to home school parents, school districts and the general public.
