Families desiring to educate their children at home may do so by notifying their local school district superintendent and meeting the requirements outlined in Ohio law. Once requirements are met students are excused from compulsory attendance.
Families can join a co-op or support group to complement their home education, which allows them to connect socially with other homeschooling families and share teaching responsibilities and materials. No funding is available for homeschooling, but families have access to several types of state-funded resources.
Note: Students enrolled in online schools are not considered as being educated at home. Tuition-free, online schools are public community (charter) schools. Families that pay tuition to enroll their child in an out of state online school are not providing home education. Parents of students must register your child as enrolled in an out of state school.
