Home Schooling Procedures
Homeschool students between the age of seven and sixteen must be enrolled in a public, private, parochial, or home-school program. Listed below are the procedures for establishing a home-based educational program. For more detailed information, click on the link to Home Schooling procedures or go to the Colorado Department of Education website (www.cde.state.co.us)
- The parent/guardian must file a “Notice of Intent to Home School” with a school district in Colorado within 14 days before the program is established and each year thereafter. You may download a copy of the Intent to Home School form, request one through our district office or write out your own statement. This written notification must certify in writing the name, age, place of residence, and number of hours of attendance of each child enrolled in the program. Completed forms should be sent to: Kelley Havin, Woodland Park School District, PO Box 99, Woodland Park, CO 80866.
- Each student in a home-based program must be tested and/or evaluated in grades 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11. If the student’s composite score is above the 13th percentile, the student remains eligible for the home-based educational program.
