Summary

This report, based on a survey of State Directors of Special Education, describes current state policies on home schooling with particular attention to state requirements on home schooling for students with disabilities. Background information notes that home schooling is an exemption from compulsory school attendance and does not include home or hospital bound instruction necessitated by a physical or mental health-based inability to attend school and also that there are no federal requirements concerning home schooling. The report estimates that approximately 100,000 students with disabilities are home schooled. The implications of federal special education requirements under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act are addressed, as are the written provisions pertaining to home schooling of students with disabilities in five states: Nevada, California, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and North Dakota. Issues specifically identified include access to special education services, "dual enrollment" options, graduation and diploma requirements, distance learning in charter schools, and inclusion of home schooled students in accountability systems. A detailed chart summarizes requirements by state and includes any specific home schooling statute, notice to public authorities of intention to home school, teacher requirements, testing requirements, and specific policies on students with disabilities.
