Home Education Program 

Home Education is a parent-directed educational option that satisfies the requirement for regular school attendance. All requests to educate a child in a home education program are to be submitted to the Superintendent via the Home School Department.

Bay District Schools Home Education Office assists the parents of approximately 1,000 students who choose to educate their children at home in complying with Florida State Statutes, referencing Compulsory School Attendance. Specifically, this office maintains records, sends courtesy reminders of evaluations due, and notifies parents of opportunities for state standardized testing. (Please note: state tests are optional for Home School Students).

Home school families should refer to this website often for information regarding important testing, events, etc.
