House Bill 2996: Teaching License Required for any Paid Instructor

Author:
Representative Paul Holvey

Summary:
House Bill 2996, regulates private schools. Under this bill private schools would be required to register with the state and generally face much more regulation than they previously have.

The main impact to homeschool families is that the bill would require any person who is paid to provide instruction to a child in kindergarten to 12th grade would have to have a teaching license. Therefore, a homeschool parent teaching a history class to their child and several other homeschool students once a week would be required to get a teaching license if they were paid any amount of money.
