Home Instruction

Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. James Lane  has announced a waiver for end-of-year testing and evaluations for homeschoolers in a VDOE press release and in Superintendent’s Memo #105-20. The memo states in part: Parents electing to provide Home Instruction during the 2019-2020  school  year shall be relieved of the requirement to provide evidence of student progress to the local school division superintendent (§22.1-254.1). The Superintendent of Public Instruction may grant temporary flexibility or issue waivers of certain deadlines and requirements that cannot be met due to the state of emergency or school closures resulting from Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Thus, you are not required to submit Evidence of Academic Progress for the 2019-2020 school year.

Parents/guardians who wish to homeschool their child and who reside in Arlington County, are required to notify the superintendent of their intention to provide home instruction for their children in lieu of school attendance.

Please use the links to the left to explore the requirements and notification procedures which you must follow in order to be in compliance with state and federal law.
