Homeschool

Colorado law recognizes homeschool as an alternative to classroom attendance in public school. Homeschool or non-public, home-based educational programs are subject to the minimal state controls applied to other forms of non-public education.

Homeschool guidelines

It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian establishing the non-public home-based educational program to know and follow all statuary requirements found in C.R.S. 22-33-104.5 as well as any revisions to this statute.

  • Parents/guardians are required to notify the school district each school year of their intent to homeschool their student. Notification must be received by 鶹ýPorn at least 14 days prior to the establishment of a home-based education program.  

    Please  for your student.
     
    • Parent/guardian will need to create a new account by registering as a new user.
    •  Please fill out one form per student.
    • Once the form is submitted and received by 鶹ýPorn, confirmation emails will be sent to the parent email address.
    • Parent/guardian can upload test evaluations/results anytime for their student.
       
  • 鶹ýPorn does NOT provide any curriculum, textbooks, tests, etc. for any homeschool courses. This is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
  • The parent or guardian is responsible for all record keeping associated with the home-based educational program.
  • All evaluation results, as required under C.R.S. 22-33-104.5, must be filed with the Assistant Superintendents Office unless filed with an independent or parochial school in which the district must be notified of the location of the results.
  • Students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) must be enrolled in school on at least a part-time basis to be eligible to receive services from the district.
  • Homeschool students shall be subject to Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) rules to qualify for athletics and activities.
  • Your child may:
    • enroll in the 鶹ýPorn Options School to enrich the child's home-based program
    • enroll in classes at a 鶹ýPorn school on a space-available basis if the child's hours of attendance are at least half-time
    • not enroll in either the 鶹ýPorn Options School or in classes at another district school
  • Students wishing to enroll in the district after participating in a homeschool may be assessed by the district. High school (9-12) students may be required to complete subject specific district summative assessments for the purpose of accepting non-accredited homeschool credits. Non-accredited graduation courses taught in middle school will not be accepted. Grades for accepted non-accredited courses shall be recorded as "S" (satisfactory) and "U" (unsatisfactory) for transfer of credit.
