Home Education Application Management

Home Education Application Management

The Educational Service Center of Central Ohio manages the application process of home education enrollment for students and families residing in ESC local school districts.

To be considered for home education, a Home Education Notification form along with a brief outline of the intended curriculum for the current year must be submitted to the ESC of Central Ohio.

The ESC notifies parents within 14 days of receipt of the notification form of the Home Education status with a co-signed letter from the ESC superintendent and the local school district superintendent.

After the first year of home education an academic assessment report of the student for the previous school year must be sent along with the current year’s Home Education Notification form to the ESC of Central Ohio. The academic assessment report must include either the results of a nationally normed, standardized achievement test, a written narrative or an alternative academic assessment.
