New Mexico--Annual Notice to the State Superintendent Reminder

Dear HSLDA Members:

This is just a reminder for those operating under New Mexico's
homeschool law that your annual notice of intent to homeschool is due
by April 1.

New Mexico's homeschool statute requires parents to submit
notification of their intent to homeschool to the New Mexico Public
Education Department (PED) within 30 days of the establishment of
their home education program and by April 1 of each subsequent year.

The notice is be submitted by mail or through the PED website. While
your notice must provide the name of your local school district; you
are under no legal obligation to notify your local school district
that you are homeschooling. However, families who are receiving public
assistance may need to notify their district to continue receiving
public aid.

The New Mexico PED Online Notification Form is available at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10757.

You may also use HSLDA's notification form at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=10751 , which is posted in the
members-only section of our website. Send it "Certified Mail/Return
Receipt Requested" to the state superintendent of schools within 30
days of establishing your homeschool and then by April 1 of each
subsequent year. Although the law does not require that specific
information be submitted for each child, the Department of Education
will not process a form without at least one name and date of birth.
The address to mail it to is:

New Mexico Public Education Department
Home Schools
300 Don Gaspar
Santa Fe, NM 87501-2786

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 540-338-5600.
