Nevada--Notice of Intent to Homeschool Reminder

Dear HSLDA Members,

This is a reminder that if you are homeschooling your child for the
first time this year, you must submit a notification form to the
superintendent of the public school district in which your child
lives.

This notice of intent must be filed: a) before you begin to homeschool
the child, b) no later than 10 days after the child has been formally
withdrawn from public school, OR c) no later than 30 days after
establishing residency in Nevada.

The purpose of the notice of intent is to inform the school district
that your child is exempt from the compulsory public school attendance
requirement.

The notice of intent must include:

1) Full name, age and gender of the child;
2) Name and address of each parent filing the notice of intent to
homeschool;
3) A statement signed and dated by each such parent declaring that the
parent has control or charge of the child and the legal right to
direct the education of the child, and assumes full responsibility for
the education of the child while the child is being homeschooled;
4) An educational plan for the child;
5) If applicable, the name of the Nevada public school which the child
most recently attended; and
6)An optional privacy statement that the parent may sign.

If the name or address of the parent or child changes, the parent must
file a new notice of intent no later than 30 days after the change.
If all information remains the same, only one notice is required.

HSLDA provides a notice of intent form for members, which you can
access here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5556 .

Or you can obtain a notice of intent form from your local school
district or the Nevada Department of Education website at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5557 .

To have the form mailed to you, call Dr. Orval Nutting (at the NV
Department of Education) at (775) 687-9238.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka, Esq.
HSLDA Senior Counsel

When a social service worker arrives at your door, tension can run

providing you with immediate step-by-step guidance?
