Home School Info & Forms

Washington state law recognizes the desire of some parents and families to seek a home-based instruction (HBI) for their children.

RCW 28A.200.010(1) states that each person whose child is receiving home-based instruction under RCW 28A.225.010(4) must file annually a signed declaration of intent that he or she is planning to cause his or her child to receive home-based instruction. The declaration is to be filed by September 15 of the school year or within two weeks of the beginning of any public school quarter, trimester, or semester with:

  1. The superintendent of the public school district within which the parent resides, or
  2. The superintendent of a nonresident public school district that accepts the transfer, in which case, the student is considered a transfer student of the nonresident district.
