  • Oregon Homeschool Information

    Every state in the United States has different homeschooling laws and regulations. Some states are very difficult to homeschool in, some states are very easy, while most states fall somewhere in the middle. Oregon homeschool laws have positive and negative points.

    Oregon homeschool families must submit a letter of intent, only once, when the child begins homeschooling. If they move to a different district, the new district needs to receive a new letter of intent. Oregon homeschool families do not need to teach a specific curriculum, specific subjects, or adhere to specific attendance requirements, nor do parents need to be certified.

    Oregon homeschool regulations do require children to be tested in grades 3, 5, 8, and 10. If the child is in the 15th percentile or lower, the child must be tested the following year. If the child again scores in the lower 15th percentile, then the child must be tested again the following year, at which time the district will get involved by assigning a teacher (at the parent's expense) to monitor the situation. The school district can recommend the child returns to public school at the end of an additional year, if testing scores remain low.
