Welcome to the Home Education Program Office’s website. The site contains information and resources to assist you as you home educate your child(ren). The purpose of the Home Education Program is to permit parents to comply with the compulsory school attendance law while teaching their child(ren) at home. For the purpose of this document, “parent” refers to the parent or guardian.
To establish a Home Education Program, a parent must provide written notice to the district school superintendent of his/her intent to establish and maintain a home education program. The home education program applies only to students ages six (6) through sixteen (16).
Requirements of the home education program are outlined in Florida Statute 1002.41.
The parent who assumes responsibility for educating a child at home also assumes the responsibility for providing curriculum, educational materials, and evaluations necessary to determine student progress. Collier County Public Schools does not supply textbooks, curriculum guides, or educational standards for the home-educated student.
Please contact the Home Education office directly by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at the numbers listed on this page for further assistance.
