Homeschooling Information

RCW 28A.200.011(1) states that each person whose child is receiving home-based instruction under RCW 28A.225.010(4) must file annually a signed Declaration of Intent to Homeschool form. The declaration is to be filed by September 15 of the school year or within two weeks of the beginning of any public school quarter, trimester, or semester with the school the student is currently enrolled at. 


If your child will be using district services such as assessment administration, participating in Running Start, enrolling part-time in a course/courses offered by our schools, or receiving services for identified disabilities, a Request for Courses, RS, or Ancillary Services form will also need to be submitted (along with your homeschool form) to the district office or the school you are receiving services from. 


Each school year, school district administrators are asked to complete the Home-Based Student Annual Report to identify the number of students whose parent or guardian has filed declarations of intent to provide home-based instruction for the current school year. This data is used to maintain student enrollment statistics and project enrollment statistics and trends.
