The scoop on notice of intent

This fall, Home School Legal Defense Association received a number of questions from our members asking precisely what is required to comply with Nevada law regarding the home school notice of intent.

Nevada law requires home schoolers to submit a lot of information to the school board, including:

  • a statement about the person who will teach and where instruction will take place;
  • an educational plan including goals and a description of instructional materials;
  • a calendar indicating 180 days of instruction;
  • a copy of the child's birth certificate or other documentation sufficient to establish his identity; and
  • evidence that the instructor meets certain requirements.

Fulfilling the law is not made easier by school boards who require more than this. If your school board attempts to make you submit anything beside the above list, please contact HSLDA so that we can assist you.

In addition, by logging on to, members can download a notice of intent form that includes only the information required by law. (See A Plethora of Forms on page 13.)
