Enrollment

If you are choosing to withdraw your child from a Broward County Public School and enroll into Home Education, please read carefully the information below.  You may click on any of the blue highlighted links, forms or statutes for further directions and procedures to comply with Home Education Enrollment.

 

Upon deciding to establish and maintain a home education program for your child, you will be governed by Florida statutes regarding compulsory school age attendance laws as they relate to home education. 

  • A student must be of school age to be enrolled in Home Education, as specified in section 1003.21, Florida Statutes.

  • The law requires the custodial parent(s)/guardian(s) of home education students to:

    • Submit a letter of intent within 30 days of establishing a home education program

    • Maintain a portfolio containing work samples and a log of educational activities

    • Provide an Annual Evaluation as specified in section 1002.41, Florida Statutes

    • Annually report the evaluation results by sending them to the Home Education Office

    • Preserve each student's portfolio for two years and make it available for inspection by the Superintendent's designee, with a 15-day written notice

    • Submit a Notice of Termination within 30 days of concluding a home education program

Information about establishing a program, annual evaluations, dual enrollment opportunities, termination, helpful websites, etc. may be found in Frequently Asked Questions.

 

If your child is currently attending a Broward school, withdraw your child and submit a letter of intent to establish a home education program to the Superintendent of Schools via US mail, CERTIFIED/RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED.  The certified receipt will be your confirmation that your child is enrolled.  Due to high mailing costs, the district DOES NOT MAIL a letter of confirmation. Include in your letter your child’s legal name, address, date of birth, phone number and your signature.

 

Letters of intent should be addressed to:

Broward County Public Schools, 1400 NW 14 Ct. Bldg. 17 • Ft. Lauderdale, FL. 33311

 Attn:  Home Education
