Iowa homeschooling laws state that children must be schooled 37 days per quarter. Parents must submit annual letters of intent which include texts used and an outline of the education the child is to receive. First time homeschoolers also need to provide the school board with vaccination records. Special Education children need board approval to be homeschooled.
