Letter of Intent

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I enroll (or re-enroll) my child in homeschooling for this school year?

To homeschool your child, you must annually submit a Letter of Intent for each child. For the 2023 - 2024 school year, this letter is due on or about July 1, 2023:

  • For new and returning homeschooled students: complete the 2023-2024 Letter of Intent Form. New siblings of currently homeschooled students may also be added using this form.
  • A Letter of Intent form to register students new (and returning) to homeschooling is available on this page (Please be sure to click on the document to download/view/print). Please complete this document and email it to:

After the Letter of Intent is sent, what are the next steps?

After a Letter of Intent to homeschool is submitted, you will receive and auto-response email that confirms receipt.  You may begin to homeschool your child(ren) immediately.  While not required, we recommend you notify in writing the district your child(ren) attend of the Letter Intent submission.

In order to ensure that your child receives and educational experience aligned with the New York State Education Department (NYSED) Commissioner's Regulation Part 100.10, there are several forms that you are required to submit over the course of the school year.  

State regulations allow 28 days to submit the Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP); you do not need to wait for submission or approval of the IHIP to begin homeschooling. An Individualized Home Instruction Plan (IHIP) is required each year a student is homeschooled. 

Note: If there are any questions or issues in your Letter of Intent of IHIP submission, we will reach out to you at the telephone or email address provided for more information.
