Homeschooling

Per Connecticut Department of Education: (Homeschooling-ct.gov) 

Overview

Homeschooling as an Option to Public School Education

Parents who wish to homeschool their child/ren should contact their local public school's district office for information on local requirements.
Under Connecticut State Statute 10-184, a parent may remove a child from public school for purposes of homeschooling if "the parent or person having control of such child is able to show that the child is elsewhere receiving equivalent instruction in the studies taught in the public schools". These subjects include reading, writing, spelling, English grammar, geography, arithmetic and United States history and in citizenship, including a study of the town, state and federal governments.

For parents who may wish to return a child to public high school, consideration should be given to ensuring that homeschool course work aligns with Connecticut State Graduation Requirements. Parents may choose to provide instruction, hire someone else to do so, or choose an online option. It should be noted that the Connecticut State Department of Education does not accredit any of the online/virtual schools.
