Those interested in home schooling need to file by Aug. 15

Parents interested in educating their children at home independently of Gloucester County Public Schools have a number of curricula and programs to choose from, but they need to file a notice of their intent to home school with the school system by Aug. 15.

In order to provide home instruction, you must qualify in one of four ways. You must possess a high school diploma or higher degree, possess a current Virginia teacher’s license, provide a curriculum or program of study as part of your home instruction program, or give evidence that you are able to provide your child with an adequate education.

Your notice of intent to provide home instruction to your child must include your home instructor qualification. You must also include a curriculum description for each child, which could just be a list of subjects.

Each year by Aug. 1, you must provide the school system with an evaluation showing that your child has achieved an adequate level of education growth and progress.
