Useful Forms for Minnesota Homeschoolers
Reporting Information for Homeschoolers in the State of Minnesota
Minnesota law requires homeschooling families to report certain information to their school district once a year. The specific statute that addresses reporting, Minn. Stat. 120A.24, subd. 1, is fairly easy to read and understand.
Non-accredited, Nonpublic School Full Report
The person or nonpublic school in charge of providing instruction to a child must submit a Full Report to the superintendent of the school district where the child resides. Information in the Full Report must be submitted by October 1 of the first school year the child receives instruction after reaching the age of seven; with 15 days of when a parent withdraws a child from public school after age seven to provide instruction in a nonpublic school that is not accredited by a state-recognized accrediting agency; within 15 days of moving out of a district; and by October 1 after a new resident district is established.Submit the Letter of Intent to Continue to Provide Instruction by October 1 in subsequent years.
Letter of Intent to Continue to Provide Instruction
Submit a Letter of Intent to Continue to Provide Instruction to the superintendent’s office in the school district where the parent/legal guardian resides. Complete the information using this form or a written or electronic format of your choice. Information in the Letter of Intent must be submitted by October 1 of each year after a Full Report has been filed in the same district. If you have moved, you must file a new Full Report.
Annual Report to School District
In the summer of 2011, the Minnesota Legislature passed the Homeschool Mandate Reduction bill, improving homeschool reporting and strengthening homeschooling rights in Minnesota. Minnesota law does not specify how home educators should write their annual report, only that it is due by October 1 each year and certain information must be communicated. MÂCHÉ encourages you to use one of these forms or to write your own letter instead of any documents a local school district may send because those usually are, to some degree, in error. Do not set precedent by reporting more information than the statute specifies. Provided by Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators (MACHE).
