Home Instruction (Home Schooling)


Parents may choose to educate their children at home rather than enrolling in a traditional public or private school. Parents must notify the local public school system of their decision to homeschool each student. Evidence of instruction in all of the following areas is required: English, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, health and physical education. Home instruction must be supervised either by the local public school system or by a private organization registered with the Maryland State Department of Education.
