9270 - EQUIVALENT EDUCATION OUTSIDE THE SCHOOLS (HOME SCHOOLING)

The Board of Education encourages the enrollment of all school-age children resident in this District in public schools or in State-approved, nonpublic schools so they may enjoy the benefits of a well-planned educational program and the socialization possible in a group environment. The Board acknowledges, however, the right of parents to home school within the District, as established by State law.

The Board shall not allow a student who is being educated at home or at a nondistrict school that has not met the reporting requirements of the State to participate in any of the District's curricular, co-curricular, or extra-curricular activities. However, if the school has met the reporting requirements and the student is enrolled in the District on a part-time basis in noncore classes, s/he may also participate in noncore co-curricular or extra-curricular activities that are directly related to those noncore classes. It is not the purpose of this policy, however, to provide services to nondistrict students beyond the requirements of the law.

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines for implementing this policy.
